Gi Group, Italy’s largest multinational staffing company and one of Europe’s top 6 staffing organisations, has completed the acquisition of Jobtome, one of the world’s largest online job aggregators.

Formed in 2014 and headquartered in Switzerland, Jobtome has a presence in 35 countries. It has over 10 million users and more than 9 million job offers indexed by 10,000 sites worldwide.

“I’m very optimistic about the success of this partnership”, said Gabriele Borga, Jobtome’s founder and CEO. “Joining Gi Group will further strengthen Jobtome’s growth and expansion plans. In particular, it will allow us to accelerate our go-to-market strategy aimed at businesses that are actively seeking workers.”

“As a global player that’s active in over 50 countries, we see a wide range of challenges in the world’s labour market”, said Stefano Colli-Lanzi, Gi Group’s CEO and President, “We believe the most important challenge is to ensure an ever more effective and efficient matching of labour demand and supply and to be attractive to candidates, especially at this historic time of digital transformation.”

“In Jobtome”, Colli-Lanzi continued, “we’ve identified the ideal response to these challenges. Its platform and the implementation of programmatic advertising technology will allow us to increase our capacity to bring together candidates and businesses. The digital and mobile solutions it developed will also allow us to be more attractive to candidates.”

“I can’t wait”, Colli-Lanzi concluded, “to welcome the Jobtome team and to begin working together on solutions that can really respond to the increasingly complex and diverse needs of candidates and businesses.”

Gi Group received legal counsel from SZA, Bär & Karrer and Studio Pirola e Associati, and received financial counsel from Fitidal Spa. Jobtome was assisted by the investment bank GCA Altium and the law firm of Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe.
