About Digital by Default Jobs

In 2016, I wrote about my dream jobs board:

Due to my weekly jobs list I spend a silly amount of time trawling various jobs boards to identify the ten I link to each week. None of them are much fun to use really — the big ones are bloated and full of agency roles that may or may not exist, the specialised ones are often clunky with obscure eccentricities and the company ones are almost without fail dreadful — sending me down blind alleys and often providing barely useful job descriptions or often no actual page to link to.

Part of the problem is there is nowhere that aggregates the kinds of roles I go looking for but part of it is just that most of the software people are using seems to suck.

So this is just a quick brain-dump of things I’d like to see on a jobs board if I was ever in a position to influence anything.

So, this is the work-in-progress jobs board spin-off from my newsletter, with a simple paid posting option at a flat rate of £50 per vacancy for product, agile or design roles in central & local government, charities, the NHS, higher education or suppliers working in the area that I think share the community’s values.
