Real-time Open Job Markets

What if we created a real-time, transparent platform for the job market? Because we have seen how social media job ads have raised concerns about opaque algorithms and discriminatory practices and jobs – growing anxiety and stress levels around fundamental life opportunities – but tech progress could also create a market place where the hiring process is more open, efficient and inclusive? We could pioneer a platform for instant and open job postings across industry, agencies and recruiters, generating transparent data on labour demand and supply and providing fair opportunities for all.

Example

Open Jobs (UK)

Open jobs is a unit within Nesta that aims to help individuals, organisations and governments to take more informed labour market decision by using open jobs data. The unit works with local and national partners to improve the efficiency and inclusiveness of their labour markets.
