Job Board - DemocraticJobs.coop

#1

Hi, Jason here from Glowbox.

We’ve just launched a new website which is a job board for worker co-operatives:

The goal of the site is to make it easier for people to find jobs at worker co-ops and to help worker co-ops recruit by being able to search CVs. We found that while there exists niche job sites for other sectors of the economy, there wasn’t a place where people can easily look for jobs in the democratic economy. I’ve populated the site with some jobs in the UK and North America, and if your co-op has any vacancies please do add them.

Would be good to get your thoughts.

Can’t select both Full Time and Part Time.

When I select a closing date, it comes up as “15S April 2019” in the text box - hope that came through correctly?

Bit confusing; the label says “Job Application Email” but the hint says “URL or Email”. I put in a URL - because we don’t accept applications by email - but I couldn’t see that in the preview, so I wasn’t sure that totally worked.

Label says “Twitter username” so I put in just “opendatacoop” and it came out as “http://opendatacoop/”. I had to put in a full URL of “https://twitter.com/opendatacoop/” to get it to work. (If your on PHP I have a section of code that tries to take user input and parse an actual Twitter username out of whatever comes in https://github.com/OpenACalendar/OpenACalendar-Web-Core/blob/master/core/php/models/GroupModel.php#L152 , there are tests for it to in that repo.)

Sorry, you did ask :slight_smile: Good luck with it!

@JasonC We could display a branded widget with listed jobs on our website at https://platform6.coop if you have code available?

Great idea Graham. I’ve added a jobs widget code generator here:
