A meeting of minds to expand Pro Bono Australia’s impact
29 July 2019 at 7:30 am

Pro Bono Australia’s jobs board is set to grow bigger than ever before, following the organisation’s acquisition of Infoxchange’s not-for-profit job site, Job Seeker. 

Job Seeker is dedicated to community, health, welfare and government sector jobs. 

The acquisition of 8,000 subscribers and a greater pool of candidates will give Pro Bono Careers greater reach and exposure to a previously untapped audience. 

Pro Bono Australia, which provides news, social sector jobs and education for the social sector, and Infoxchange, which develops technology to tackle social challenges, have known one another for almost 20 years through their social purpose work and the development of their respective job sites.

Karen Mahlab AM, founder and CEO of Pro Bono Australia, said it made sense for the two organisations to join forces, providing more value to purpose-driven employers and candidates. 

“Pro Bono Careers and Job Seeker are aligned in their mission, and our audiences share common values and aspirations: to work for organisations that have a positive impact on the world,” Mahlab said.  

“We are excited to provide more opportunities to this audience and accelerate the exponential growth of Pro Bono Careers by combining forces with Job Seeker.”

She said the move would help Pro Bono Australia support its news team to report on issues the social sector cared about most. 

“In times when media organisations are struggling with their revenue streams, it is important for businesses to look at new ways to grow their income. We look forward to further growing our social impact and supporting our free news service through this acquisition,” Mahlab said. 

David Spriggs, CEO of Infoxchange, said he was excited Pro Bono Australia was the one to take on Job Seeker and continue to support its audience of for-purpose employers and candidates.   

“We’re pleased that Pro Bono Australia will continue to provide a place for our sector to connect, grow and explore new career opportunities while enabling us to focus more of our efforts on our vision of technology for social justice,” Spriggs said. 

A portion of the revenue from Pro Bono Careers will also assist in funding Infoxchange to continue developing technology for social justice. 

Job Seeker will be fully integrated with Pro Bono Careers from September.
