Job.com, the data-driven, AI-powered recruitment business, has acquired two staffing firms: Fortus Healthcare Resources, which specializes in the direct and travel placement of healthcare professionals with an emphasis on nursing, and Endevis, which offers permanent recruitment services, contract staffing, and recruitment process outsourcing to clients in the automotive, commercial, and manufacturing sectors, among others.
“Fortus and Endevis are both strong businesses, and we are thrilled that they have joined our portfolio,” said Job.com co-founder and CEO Paul Sloyan. “They both complement HireVergence, the cybersecurity specialist staffing firm we acquired in 2020, and give us penetration into the healthcare, automotive, and other sectors. In the first 12 months of owning HireVergence, we have worked closely with its management team to grow the business significantly and have increased the number of contractors billing by nearly 100%, and our goal is to do the same with these two new acquisitions.”
“Our team has worked tirelessly to grow Fortus to where it is today, a market leader in the provision of traveling nurses, with a specialty in the ever-growing dialysis sector,” said Fortus Founder and CEO Mike Maurizio. “We have done very well, but have always been conscious that there was an even bigger opportunity if we could find a way of accessing more talent to fill the vast number of job roles our clients have open at any time. We believe we have found the perfect partner in Job.com. They have the technology we need to access more suitably qualified candidates quickly and to improve communication between our clients, employees, and nurses. Fortus has grown significantly over the past three years, and I fully expect this growth to accelerate exponentially now that we are part of Job.com.”
“I have always believed that the best way to predict the future was to invent it,” said Fortus president and chief revenue officer Jeremy Enck. “The alliance of Job.com and Fortus is going to make an incredible impact on the staffing industry and change a lot of people’s futures.”
“The only thing that has ever held us back is the time and the manpower to fill more of the opportunities our great client base offers us,” said Endevis co-founder and chief administrative officer Mick Fecko. “We recognized that the best way to continue to grow our business was by applying state-of-the-art recruitment technology to add pace and enhance the recruitment process. Joining Job.com delivers to us both the tech we need now and an exciting plan for further proprietary technology, plus greater scale and market penetration. Speaking on behalf of my Endevis co-founders, Ron Walters and Mark Melfi, we are delighted to now be part of Job.com, we see a great future for our business and the wider group.”
“Our goal is to improve every aspect of recruitment,” said Job.com co-founder and chief visionary officer Arran Stewart. “We want employers to have access to the perfect candidate for their roles, for recruiters to be empowered by technology to work more efficiently and, most importantly of all, for jobseekers to be placed in their ideal jobs.”
