Project Description

Revelo (“the Company”) is a recruiting technology company that helps businesses across Brazil to efficiently hire knowledge workers (professional level employees) in various sectors including finance, marketing, business intelligence, and IT. The Company facilitates the hiring process through the use of its full-stack online marketplace where employers interact directly with job candidates to source, interview, and hire new employees. Revelo reduces the time needed to hire knowledge workers and provides its service at a fraction of the cost of its competitors. The proposed IFC investment (“Project”) consists of a minority equity stake to support Revelo’s expansion across Brazil.

People Affected By This Project

(i) Job Creation: Revelo will facilitate the placement of thousands of professionals in new jobs across Brazil, helping both SMEs and large enterprises alike to improve their productivity.

(ii) Hiring Equality: The Revelo platform helps to reduce hiring biases, thereby allowing women and other minorities to have a higher likelihood of getting hired.
