BGF was set up in 2011 to offer growing companies and ambitious entrepreneurs patient capital and strategic support. Today, we are the UK and Ireland’s most active investor in small and medium-sized companies. An established and independent company, we have £2.5bn to support a range of growing companies – early stage, growth stage and quoted – across every region and sector of the economy. Hundreds of companies have benefited from our equity capital investments to accelerate growth.
We believe growing businesses deserve the best possible support. That’s why it is in our legitimate interest to identify, track and contact suitable talent that can help us develop our business and support the fantastic entrepreneurs we work with.
We use Teamtailor, an applicant tracking platform, to host and process some of the data related to our potential candidates.
