Revolutionising recruitment for startups in Manchester

Tate Digital launches innovative new recruitment platform to help drive Manchester’s booming startup scene

Manchester, UK. July 2018

Tate Digital, the UK’s first recruitment brand built exclusively to serve Manchester’s startups and high-growth companies, announced its launch in the city this week. The company, which offers a flexible, subscription based recruitment service aims to give startups the flexibility needed to scale up on demand, without having to pay extortionate fees commonly associated with conventional staffing companies.

Joel Fletcher, Director of Tate Digital believes Manchester startups are about to experience a new wave of exponential growth:

“The tech industry in Manchester is booming right now. The worker bee symbol seen across the city is reflected in the hive of activity we’re seeing from Manchester’s high-growth startups. At Tate Digital, we want to help expand that activity by providing companies with a platform to find the best marketing and digital people who will help scale their businesses.”

Manchester has always been at the forefront of innovation. Startup success stories from Push Doctor, to Boohoo, to the Lad Bible Group have cemented Manchester’s place as one of Europe’s hubs for high growth startups. One of the hardest things for startups in Manchester, however, is finding the best digital and marketing staff when they need to grow. Tate Digital solves the problem.

Masa Prastalo, Digital Partnerships Manager at Tate Digital thinks that Tate Digital can grow not only startups, but the people in the city:

“Our aim is to not only help businesses find the staff they need, but also to help attract talented marketing and digital professionals to the city of Manchester. We’re also engaging with the Manchester community to help them find the roles they’ve always wanted. As companies grow in the city, our people will grow too. It’s an exciting time to be involved within the Manchester startup scene. In a few years time, who knows how huge this city could become!”
