The deal sees Causeway Capital investing in GTI Group in collaboration with Mark Blythe, one of GTI’s founders.

This investment will allow GTI to accelerate its roll-out of new technology and data services that help graduate recruiters identify and attract top talent, and universities improve the employment outcomes of their students.

The Burges Salmon team was led by partner Mark Shepherd and director Tim Roberts from the firm’s Corporate Finance team.

Mark says: “Hot on the heels of advising Causeway Capital last month on its purchase of Patisserie Valerie, which bought the much-loved café chain out of administration, we are delighted to have advised the team on this deal.

“This is another exciting addition to Causeway’s portfolio and will help GTI develop its vision of transforming the way students move from education to employment, and further boost the UK’s pace in innovation associated with graduate outcomes.”

GTI was formed 30 years ago and its mission is to help organisations recruit top early talent, while providing students with the best resources possible to make successful decisions about their future. Today, GTI is the UK and Ireland’s leading provider of graduate and school leaver recruitment services for employers looking to attract and recruit the most talented and engaged students.

Matt Scaife at Causeway Capital says: “The Burges Salmon team, led by Mark and Tim, were great to work with and their hard work was much appreciated. This deal is yet another credential for their Private Equity team, and another transaction where the team has acted as a trusted adviser to us.”
