Aiming to be the LinkedIn of the construction industry; TradeHounds will launch Jobs platform this summer to connect skilled tradespeople with employment opportunities after receiving a new investment of $3.2 million.
According to the press release;
Construction companies and the staffing firms that support them stand to benefit from immediate access to a larger pool of qualified candidates, including the passive job seekers who post about their work on Trade Hounds but may not be actively searching for work on job boards. Skilled tradespeople benefit from a community of like-minded professionals where they can showcase their skills and find new career opportunities.
David Broomhead, Co-Founder and CEO of Trade Hounds, said: “It’s always bothered me that tradespeople – the skilled workers who build our hospitals, schools and infrastructure – don’t have access to a technology platform that meets their professional needs. We’ve set out to change this with Trade Hounds. We are proud to be the largest digital platform that aims to unite and empower the millions of proud, hard-hat-wearing workers who are building the world around us.”
Founded by Mr. Broomhead, who comes from an Australian family of tradespeople, Trade Hounds enables its users to interact with each other
