Today I decided to make a list of the best WordPress themes designed for job boards. These themes can be used for general job listing website as well as some niche sites like freelancer job listings and even job board for babysitters. These themes features frontend submission, location aware search, resume creators, visual builders and much more.
I have been involved in recruitment business for the past 5 years working for several international recruitment companies. My main duties were building and maintaining job portals and I know the tiniest aspects of this business. Job portal business has been taken away by large sites like Monster and LinkedIn but there are loads of niches where relatively small websites are performing really well.
The main problem about small players is to keep the website up to date, error free and always add new functionality requested by users. This is incredibly hard if you are using custom-built system and you have no idea how to write your own code. This is where WordPress comes into the game. You can use various plugins and themes and setup your job listing with ease and always keep it updated as theme and plugin developers releases updates. This is something you can’t done with custom-built systems or it will cost fortune to do so.
Below you can find the best job board themes I was able to find. These theme share the same premium design and functionality and they are highly customizable to suit your needs. Most of these themes are created as dedicated job board themes but some of theme can be used for recruitment agency, business, directory, classified and other functional and creative websites.
