JobTeaser acquires Nordic competitor Graduateland


The French scale-up strengthens its position of European leader in the guidance and recruitment of young talent

JobTeaser, the European leader in career guidance and recruitment of young talent, announced the acquisition of its Nordic counterpart Gratuateland, allowing the French HR tech scale-up to secure the leading position in the Nordic countries. This acquisition is part of JobTeaser’s European expansion strategy and its ambition to offer the largest pool of young talent across Europe. This union will also allow the development of new features and services on its platform thanks to Graduateland’s expertise and technology. ​

Already active in 25 countries, the tech scale-up is consolidating its position as European leader in the guidance and recruitment of young talent through the acquisition of Graduateland. The Danish start-up is the largest career network in the Nordics, with over one million students across Europe and 50,000 active recruiters. This union allows JobTeaser to establish itself in Northern Europe, a highly strategic market given the reputation of the Nordic universities and the attraction of international companies for their students.

” Our ambition has always been to create a true ecosystem for recruiting young European talent. We have already succeeded in establishing ourselves in various markets, including France, Germany, Benelux and Southern Europe. Our collaboration with Graduateland allows us to immediately move up a gear and unite our teams on both an expertise and technical level to continue our joint international expansion.”

Adrien Ledoux – CEO of JobTeaser

The joining of forces of JobTeaser and Graduateland represents a unique opportunity for both companies to continue their expansion, not only in the Nordic countries but also in other European markets. The ambition is twofold: on the one hand, to offer the largest pool of young talent on a European scale to companies and recruiters, and on the other hand, to open the doors of Europe to students and young graduates through the career services of partner universities.

Together, JobTeaser and Graduateland will be the undisputed European leader in recruiting young talent with a pool of 5 million students from over 750 European schools and universities who will have access to job offers from more than 250,000 recruiters across Europe.

”Our teams are a perfect fit with the mission of JobTeaser, which is one of the driving forces behind the creation of Graduateland. We are excited to join them in this mission and help shape the career path of young European talent.”

Patrick Lund – CEO of Graduateland

The acquisition will also create new career and mobility opportunities for the 400 employees of both entities. The new internal projects resulting from the transaction represent a learning opportunity for our employees who will be able to broaden their skills and take advantage of internal mobility by changing jobs or teams or both. At the same time, JobTeaser continues to grow by recruiting new talents, with currently over 150 open positions across Europe.
