Shine is a fully customisable, highly secure, enterprise level video-based recruitment platform that facilitates a remote first end-to-end recruitment process for enterprises, SMEs, and recruitment firms. Shine enables employers to recruit the best candidates, in an efficient and fair manner, while delivering an exceptional candidate experience, reducing early-stage screening by over 70% and reducing time to hire & costs by 50%. The business works with clients in over 80 countries.


Shine has carved out a solid niche in the marketplace with a well-defined position. The business has enjoyed strong growth and is well placed to scale its technology and grow its team following its relocation to County Durham. David and the team have built an impressive business and it’s great to work with the North East Fund to provide a finance package that supports the company’s ambitious expansion plans.
