“We enjoyed working with Oaklins Smith & Williamson and quickly built a rapport with the team, which was really important in delivering the transaction, along with their professionalism. Connectr was born from the belief that everyone should have equal power and opportunity to shape their own future. We enable companies to better support their employees in achieving their goals and realizing their ambitions every day. This new funding from Puma Private Equity will enable us to continue building on our success within the emerging talent space, supporting diversity and inclusion in the wider workplace and achieving our goal — to reduce unemployment and build a sense of belonging for all.”
