July 2015 London/Chichester – Talenetic (www.talenetic.com), the latest start-up of Keith, Graham and Eric Potts (the founders of Jobsite.co.uk), has received early stage investment from a consortium of prominent individuals in the recruitment industry.

It also includes Simon Lawton (Director of Benula Capital), Paul Huntingdon (founder of Serocor) and the Serocor Group.
Keith Potts, CEO of Talenetic, states: “We weren’t looking for investment at this stage, as Talenetic was developing according to plan with strong partnerships and client interest, but when Miles and his team came knocking, we didn’t have to think twice. Their industry knowledge will make our product suite even stronger and their contacts will speed up Talenetic’s growth far beyond our current trajectory. We are absolutely excited to be working together.”
Miles Hunt comments: “It is an absolute privilege to be invited by the Potts brothers to invest into their company. As an investor, it is ideal to work with people who are absolute experts in their field and have a proven track record.
