Gumtree

Gumtree.com was started in March 2000 as a local London classified ads and community site, designed to connect people who were either planning to move, or had just arrived in the city, and needed help getting started with accommodation, employment and meeting new people.

Gumtree now covers 60 cities across 6 countries - the UK, Ireland, Poland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa - and are the UK’s biggest website for local community classifieds including flat share, flat rentals and jobs. More than 25,000 new rooms are advertised a month, which means at least 10,000 rooms are rented a month through Gumtree.

In 2005 Gumtree became part of the Kijiji family within eBay. Kijiji, which means “village” in Swahili, is a group of community classifieds websites similar to us found in more than 90 cities around the world.
