"The ultra-Orthodox who enter the site are mainly looking for jobs in high-tech, and we get quite a few resumes from software developers, analysts, etc. In addition, one of the filters we choose the most is work from home, which is great. from afar".

This is what Noam Tzobari, co-founder of the "Jobik" website, a new job website for the ultra-Orthodox public, says.
The site, which was launched last week, has already been accessed by more than 60,000 job seekers from the ultra-Orthodox sector. This is not the only job site intended for ultra-Orthodox society, but the scope of jobs is significant. "This is a platform that is adapted for the ultra-Orthodox, with jobs of employers who have actually adapted their work area to the ultra-Orthodox population or who already employ ultra-Orthodox," explains Zubari. "It is possible to filter categories on the site, such as whether it is an ultra-Orthodox work environment, the separation between women and men, whether there is a synagogue in the place, and more."
In recent years, there have been many changes in the ultra-Orthodox households, and the number of men and women entering the labor market to support their families has increased considerably - but not enough. Academic institutions report a significant jump among the percentage of ultra-Orthodox who enroll in degrees and certificate studies, which leads to educated and skilled people who want to assimilate into the labor market. This is an important and critical change in the future trend of the State of Israel, because if today the percentage of ultra-Orthodox people of working age is 8%, by 2065 it will reach 25% - that is, a quarter of workers in Israel - and therefore their integration into the labor market is necessary.

In recent years, there have been many changes in the ultra-Orthodox households, and the number of men and women entering the labor market to support their families has increased considerably - but not enough. Academic institutions report a significant jump among the percentage of ultra-Orthodox who enroll in degrees and certificate studies, which leads to educated and skilled people who want to assimilate into the labor market. This is an important and critical change in the future trend of the State of Israel, because if today the percentage of ultra-Orthodox people of working age is 8%, by 2065 it will reach 25% - that is, a quarter of workers in Israel - and therefore their integration into the labor market is necessary.
According to the latest data, in 2021 the rate of ultra-Orthodox men in the labor market was about 51%, while the rate of ultra-Orthodox women has already reached 78% - very close to the rate of non-ultra-Orthodox Jewish women (which stands at about 82%). That is, the significant push required is among ultra-Orthodox men.
"One of the beautiful things we see is that the number of ultra-Orthodox men entering the site is equal to the number of ultra-Orthodox women, and this is a welcome trend," says Zubari. “Today we have almost 700 vacancies on the site after less than two weeks of it existing, and we are growing at a rate of 15-20 new jobs every day.
"We actually connect employers in the general public in the largest companies in the economy, cellular companies, insurance, finance and high-tech of course, and make them accessible to the ultra-Orthodox public. I must admit we did not know if the ultra-Orthodox public will accept us immediately, but we saw over 60,000 entries There is a demand for that."
It should be noted that the diversity index of the Equal Opportunities Commission recently published, shows that the representation of ultra-Orthodox and especially of ultra-Orthodox women in high-wage jobs that usually require academic education has indeed increased, but their wages have not increased accordingly. For example, despite the accumulated seniority among ultra-Orthodox women in the programming industry in recent years, they still earn an average of 55% of the salaries of non-ultra-Orthodox Jews (men and women). Accordingly, ultra-Orthodox academic men also increased their integration mainly in the services and insurance industries, but their wage equality did not improve either.
