Jooble, the job listings aggregator, has become one of Indonesia’s leading recruitment sites. As recruitment restarts following a lull during a countrywide lockdown earlier this year, job seekers in Indonesia are increasingly turning to aggregators to find vacancies. Jooble Indonesia saw around 1.8 million visits last month, up nearly 6% from June.
Globally, Jooble.com had around 76.9 million visitors in July, a 7% month-on-month increase. The platform has grown rapidly over the past few years by aggressively entering new markets and unseating long-time stalwarts like Indeed. Its greatest success was in Russia, where the site jumped from No. 5 to No. 2 in the span of a year.
Jooble has grown exponentially since its purchase of HotWork, a recruitment aggregator operating in several post-Communist countries, last June. The company also rolled out Jooble SEO, which makes it easier for listings to reach job seekers by optimizing postings for search engines. Ease of access is crucial for workers laid off during the Covid-19 pandemic, many of whom continue to look for work.
