Able Jobs, the Bangalore-based entry-level hiring platform, has managed to get funding of about $1.8 million from a funding round, which witnessed participation by SAIF Partners, Y Combinator, ex-WhatsApp executive, Neeraj Arora, Titan Capital and Firstcheque.
The funds will be used to create training products for organisations and foray into the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) as well as the banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) spaces. Part of the finance raised will be devoted to hiring relevant talent to strengthen its team and promote product growth.
The Company, which is just over a year old, provides valuable support to organisations in recruiting trained talent at the entry level for the support, sales and marketing departments. Able Jobs takes care of everything including identifying the suitable candidates and even training them after they are appointed. It provides just the right professionals to organisations from its pool of quality candidates whom it pre-trains by offering vocational courses free of cost, via its training app. The training and skill development is customised to the job specifications and needs of the clients. The candidates are updated about the prospective employers, and informed about their products, among other things.
These pre-trained candidates are then interviewed by the client organisations, and almost always end up getting offer letters.
Some of the big names found on Able Jobs’ client list are Zeta, Bigbasket, Byju’s, Toppr, Shareshat and WhiteHat Jr.
