Bright Network is a high-growth, media technology platform which connect ambitious young people from all backgrounds with blue-chip employers for the brightest career opportunities, bringing together two sides of the job market together in dynamic new ways.

London-based Bright Network is led by serial entrepreneur James Uffindell, who previously established, grew, and successfully exited from another business in the education sector. The business is chaired by Zach Miles, who was the founder and latterly CEO of Vedior, a multinational recruitment company, which was acquired by Randstad for €3.3 billion.

Its platform uses advanced data analytics and cutting-edge technology to pre-screen candidates and offer an unrivalled resource of rich data. The insights derived from that data enable businesses to identify and secure the highest quality pipeline of tomorrow’s talent. The quality of Bright Network’s membership and data-driven efficiency of their process has enabled the business to establish a strong client base of over 300 employers, which includes global blue-chip organisations such as Bloomberg, Deloitte, EY, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, PwC, P&G and Vodafone.
