A bright place for bright minds

JBA Labs is helping to make JBA the best environment for innovation. A place for the curious, where everybody can create, everybody is connected, and everybody can contribute.

We do this by:

  • Simplifying access to innovation support
  • Investing in innovation
  • Fostering collaboration between colleagues, industry, government, research organisations and others
  • Making space for innovation
  • Celebrating success

Note to agencies

JBA prefers to recruit candidates directly, rather than through a third party recruiter or agency. We will only pay a fee for candidates submitted or presented where there is a signed recruiting agreement in place between us and the recruiter or agency prior to the submittal, and the candidate is submitted for a specific requisition.

In the case of a candidate(s) being submitted or presented to us by a recruiter or agency without a signed agreement, JBA explicitly reserves the right to pursue and hire those candidate(s) without any financial obligation to the recruiter or agency.
