Vision and Value Proposition

img

Collabed started up in November 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic. Collabed aims to bridge the gap between University and the Workplace and help solve the skill shortage within the Construction Industry. It was founded by Alex Ramsden, who has eight years of experience within the construction sector.

 

Collabed offers job adverts to companies and recruiters within the construction industry. It also screens candidates and will soon begin using AI/Profile Matching to match jobs and candidates together. The industry experience Collabed’s team brings to the business sets it apart from traditional job boards.

 

Collabed aims to be the go-to social network/job board for the construction industry within the next four years offering quality candidates quickly and at a reasonable cost.

The Problem

  • No construction industry knowledge amongst the majority of recruiters
  • Time-consuming for employers, they spend hours posting job ads and reading through CVs
  • Receive time-wasting candidates from job boards as there are no vetting processes
  • No specific social network for the construction industry

Target Market and Opportunity

Collabed aims to reach 1% of the online construction recruitment market within three years.
