Bright Network is a media technology platform which enables blue-chip employers to reach, identify and recruit high-quality graduates and young professionals. 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 ensure that its membership contains only the top 20% of graduate talent. The quality of Bright Network’s membership helps drives efficiencies in the recruitment process and improved candidate shortlisting outcomes for employers. As a result, the business has established a strong client base of over 250 employers, which includes global blue-chip organisations such as Bloomberg, Deloitte, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, PwC, P&G SkyScanner and Vodafone.

Bright Network

With visits to the Bright Network platform doubling year on year and a trusted track record of proven ROI for 250+ top employers, we’re modernising the graduate recruitment industry. We’re very excited to bring the experience and expertise of Maven on board at this crucial stage to help us grow.
