Irish start-up Recruitroo is a recruitment and migration platform which simplifies the global hiring process for UK and Irish firms, by removing unnecessary barriers, giving companies access to talent worldwide. Primed to help reduce labour shortages in the construction, engineering, hospitality and healthcare industries, the platform uses AI and automation capabilities to process all documents and applications for employment permits and visas ensuring compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.

“The labour shortages experienced in Ireland and across Europe and the US are a major contributor to challenges in the economy. Our investment in Recruitroo goes to the heart of solving these challenges,” says Dermot Berkery, General Partner at Delta Partners. “We believe in Recruitroo’s innovative approach will have a major impact on the challenges. Their technology-driven solution has the potential to revolutionise the industry, and we are excited to support Recruitroo’s journey."
