Institute of Job Aggregators launches to support global industry

At an official launch event last week, the new Institute of Job Aggregators (IJA) brought industry leaders together to drive change across the global job aggregator industry.

At the event in Central London, Mike Wall (pictured), chair of the IJA, said: “Having now spoken to many aggregators and experts in the recruitment sector it is great to see there is an appetite for an institute to allow credible players to work together and ensure the industry continues to thrive.”

The inspiration behind the IJA was to ensure jobseeker traffic, “in a world of ever-advancing AI and bots running rampant across the internet”, was validated and the quality monitored, Wall explained.

According to the IJA, the job aggregator industry is a multi-billion-pound industry and a key part of global recruitment. The institute plans to help protect the industry by validating the credible players and giving them a platform to discuss and manage issues that are impacting the industry. 

Wall added that the institute plans to help “streamline multi-used technology to help standardise usage and settings, and it will facilitate issues like bad debtors and action to halt traffic across all platforms and retrieve the debt.

“We are here to support, grow and drive change in the global job aggregator industry and to do this we need our member's expertise, knowledge and support.

“We are now aiming to form a committee of leading industry people and to help them set the agenda of the institute based on common issues and goals.”
