Enabling better informed, transparent pathways to work.
We aim to find the most effective deployment of technology to equip workers and companies with trustworthy information. With better insight into the recruitment journey and employment experience, we can collaboratively make it better for everyone.
what we do
Just Good Work is an information platform that enables migrant jobseekers and workers to receive simple, concise and accurate information throughout their employment journey. It informs them of their rights and responsibilities at home and abroad and where to access help at every stage; from the start of the job search until they return home. This better equips them to apply for jobs that are legitimate, worthwhile and appropriate to their skills and abilities. Empowering safer work opportunities, free from abuse, deception and debt bondage.
Workers have been feeding into the content and design of the platform from the very beginning.
We are using grassroots piloting and distribution models in partnership with local organisations, to establish trust and ensure maximum usability.
initial pilot: Kenya to Qatar
Our aim is to establish maximum usability and accessibility for workers throughout the employment journey. Following an initial pilot in Qatar in February 2018, the platform is in further development and will be piloted in Kenya in July 2018.
Features of the platform:
Tailored to Kenyan users migrating to Qatar for work
Android and IOS mobile app with all content available offline
Information and advice on using all entry points to work- (personal contact, local agent, agency)
Interactive Job offer and Contract checklists
Stories from other Qatari workers from Kenya, sharing their experiences at different stages of the process
Get Help: Links to agencies and helplines that can offer support and advice at home and abroad.
Once the app has been piloted successfully, the intention is to roll it out in other regions where it is needed with:
Full audio/ visual content to address low literacy and language barriers
Tailored to the origin and destination locations
Industry specific advice, information and access to help
Tailored services for specific companies, employers & recruiters
Interactive features at key stages of the journey to engage the views and experiences of users
why just good work
It started with a conversation with one Kenyan worker in Qatar.
He had repeatedly been deceived and overcharged on his journey to work abroad. He told of how he wished someone had told him the reality of what to expect from the recruitment and employment experience. He summed it up like this
"I wouldn’t tell people not to come, I would want them to be able to make better choices"
Soon after that, we were connected with many more Kenyan workers in Qatar, calling out for a better understanding of their rights and responsibilities at work abroad, so we set out to create a platform for both jobseekers and workers.
WHO WE ARE: A COLLABORATIVE PLATFORM
Just Good Work is being developed as an independent, collaborative platform, which seeks to draw others in and provide a tool to promote or enhance existing good work, rather than re-inventing the wheel.
Key Partners include:
Fifty Eight, who partner with companies, charities and other organisations to address the challenges of modern slavery and improve working conditions in global supply chains. Fifty Eight reinvests profits into projects that are tackling the root causes of modern slavery.
The Anglican Church and international ecumenical networks, enabling distribution and trust to be built locally.
Ugandan tech accelerator Lift 256 is building the app.
We believe in creating employment opportunities in areas where people are most vulnerable to being misled into forced or exploitative employment.
