Co-founder, Oli Johnson, commented on current market trends and how Catapult is looking to embrace these opportunities: “Flexibility is fast becoming the key tenet of people’s happiness. It’s not just about control over where and when you work. It’s also about variety and progression. And fairness needs to be baked into the whole process.

“That’s what we’re trying to build with Catapult. Ultimately, we want to create a more awesome way for people to work, and with this new investment we’re ready to take Catapult to the next level.”

Terrell added: “Digital and mobile are accelerating changes in work and recruitment at a rate we wouldn’t have imagined even 5 years ago. Catapult understands these changes and is using their impact to build a sustainable platform that benefits both candidates and businesses alike. I’m excited to be joining the business at this crucial time to support its continued growth and success.”

Founded in 2015, Catapult says the funds will be used across the UK as it looks to start laying the groundwork for an upcoming global expansion.
