About us

gigl was born out of the desire to bring recruitment into the 21st century. We wanted to make it simpler for companies and candidates to connect with one another, in a way that's truly engaging for everyone involved.

We are not a recruitment agency. We are a technology platform that's fundamentally changing the way people find and apply for work.

We recognise that you're so much more than a CV. Through video, gigl allows you to express your true self when finding work, saving you and the employer time and money!
