An intelligent alternative for traditional recruitment
Established in 2015, the free proUnity platform got off to a flying start in 2016.
Combining a powerful matching engine with intelligent quality checks, and full administrative processing, proUnity offers and connects companies with best-suited profiles. Today, it already connects 5,000 freelancers from sectors such as IT, finance, HR and marcom with companies looking for reliable temporary talent at fair market prices.
The process is simple
After publishing job descriptions on proUnity, freelancers automatically receive notifications, corresponding to their selected criteria. Instead of multiplying advertising costs - common on traditional platforms - proUnity works with the ‘no cure no pay’ principle. It only invoices an amount for each day actually delivered by the freelancer. Admin processes, such as contract management, statement of services, invoicing and payments are fully automated. Everything is centralized online and handled by proUnity.
Both investors share their enthusiasm for proUnity.
They praise its innovative approach and team complementarity. Along with founding partner David Muyldermans, outsourcing specialist Olivier Glorieux and HR expert Tania Vivane have the ambition to place proUnity on the map across Europe as a the reference first for freelance management.
David van Tieghen, Manager at Seeder Fund:
"As a former eBay executive, I am confident proUnity offers an innovative business model in the recruitment market, because it is more results-based, and I suspect that companies are willing to move in that direction.”
Serge Vilain, Chairman of finance.brussels/ SRIB Group’s Management Committee adds:
“This is a good alternative to conventional services. With proUnity, companies simply manage their HR risks better. They have access to a wide range of talent on demand and can find the perfect balance between flexibility and performance. Platforms of this type already enjoy great success across the Atlantic. In our market, proUnity kicks off at the right time, since no less than 30% of workers are now independent in Belgium.”
