Jora is a job search engine that is currently available in 36 countries across 7 languages, and expanding rapidly to more countries in 2018. Jora is focused on getting all jobs, so that job seekers will not miss out on finding their dream job – this means more local and relevant jobs, not jobs spread-out across the globe. In their focus countries, they have more jobs than the global leaders.
Jora was founded in Australia, where it is the market leader in terms of volume of jobs having ~2x as many jobs as anyone else. Unlike traditional job boards, Jora gathers jobs directly from job sites including SEEK, industry associations, and company websites.

Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Since 2002, Jora, an Australian aggregator, has been providing jobseekers with access to jobs from all around the internet. It belongs to the largest job board in Australia, Seek. Today, it is also present in another 40 countries. The Australian portal attracts 4.03 million visits a month. Unfortunately, there is no social media.
Design: As an aggregator, this site has a rather minimalistic design. On the homepage, there is just a search engine (keywords and location) and the logo. To browse the companies, you can click on ‘company profiles’ at the top of the page. The pages have an attractive layout, including photos, a map, a description and key information (the site, company size, vision, language used, work hours, dress code, etc.). You can even see similar companies. Once you access the job listing, the filters (publication date, job type, salary estimate, title, location, source, distance) indicate the number of jobs for each category. Users will appreciate the UX writing, helping navigate the site. Offers can be sorted by relevance or date. Some offers have “Quick apply” options. The offer has no particular branding once opened (for “Quick apply” ones).
The job board objective: Jora helps centralize the job opportunities around Australia.
Recruiter observations: Recruiters can post for free on the site (an Australian phone number, location and description are required).
Jobseeker observations: Jobseekers can post their CV, but the job offers redirect you to another site. You can use Facebook to create an account.
The job offers: There are currently 316 242 job offers on the site. Most of the jobs are for full time positions and most are in Melbourne.
Special features: The blog (no dates); job alerts; the reviews; the partner sites.
Verdict: Clearly, Jora has managed to attract jobseekers from around the country. It focuses on Australian offers, and even offers free posting. What more could you possibly want?
