by Kay Aloha Villamor November 29th, 2022

RoleMapper, an Exeter, UK-based HRTech company that helps organizations design and structure jobs that improve diversity and skills-based hiring, raised £1.75 million in funding. 

The round was led by Mercia, with participation from existing backer Qantx and private investors.

The funding will enable Exeter-based RoleMapper to develop its AI-powered platform further and continue to grow its client base in the UK and US. The latest funding round will also enable it to add new features to the platform, boost its sales and marketing, and expand its 22-strong team with several new hires.

Sara Hill, CEO of RoleMapper, said: "Large organizations are currently facing significant challenges. Skills shortages mean finding the best talent is proving harder than ever, and this is down to outdated job structures and job descriptions—as well as the need to improve diversity and offer greater flexibility to maintain a competitive edge. Organizations need a better understanding of the skills each role requires so they can benchmark jobs and pay grades. RoleMapper helps with all of these. The funding will allow us to roll it out to further grow our presence in the UK and US."

Designed for large organizations, the RoleMapper platform helps HR leaders redesign and simplify organizational job structures in readiness for new and future ways of working. This includes skills-based hiring—a way to recruit candidates based on their skill set rather than their educational background and hybrid and flexible working. 

RoleMapper also designs and automates the creation of inclusive job descriptions that enable managers to attract candidates from more diverse backgrounds, as well as comply with equality laws or legislative changes.
