The on-demand job platform from Madrid, Jobandtalent, has netted $250 million debt financing from US-based leading investment banks including Citi, Goldman Sachs (that invested in Kyte recently) and European investor AnaCap Financial Partners.

Takeaways from the round

The fresh financing will allow the platform to facilitate tangible benefits and enhance its foundation for innovative financial products offered to workers. As a part of it, Jobandtalent will be used to enable daily payments and free early access to wages in the coming months. Also, the Spanish job platform expects the financing to assist it in its mission to reshape temporary work and provide the conditions for people to truly thrive.

The debt financing announcement follows a record quarter for growth financing, with Jobandtalent closing a $500 million Series E funding round led by Kinnevik and significant follow-on from existing investors in December 2021, which valued the company at $2.4 billion post-money. The debt financing program supports its global funding strategy and allows Jobandtalent to pursue its ambitious expansion plans to new markets.

We are proud to have been able to raise financing to support this commitment.”
