5 The Best WordPress Job Board Themes for 2018

Are you looking for a perfect job board theme to build your job portal website?

I specialize in building Job board, Job portal & Recruitment/Employment websites having extensive experience in WordPress job board development. I have worked with all popular job board themes like Workscout, Jobify, Job Career, WP Job Manager etc.

There are a number of WordPress based job board themes to choose from but I’m going to share with you the best job board themes which I think are the best in terms of features, functionalities and user experience.

There are 2 types of job board themes,

  • WP Job Manager Based Job Board Themes
  • Standalone WordPress Job Board Themes

#1. First of all, let’s talk about those job board themes which are based on WP Job Manager. These themes just provide you the basic design and layout but get all other functionalities from WP Job Manager so you will have to buy some additional plugins along with the theme which can increase the cost.

#2. Standalone job board themes are the themes which have created their own plugins and they get all the functionalities own their own and you don’t need to buy 3rd party plugins.

Here is the list of the top 5 WordPress based Job Board Themes according to my priority,

1- Workscout

workscout job board theme

WorkScout is an all-in-one WordPress Job Board solution for recruiters, employment agencies and any kind of job office you can think of. A powerful tool that allows building a professional website in minutes. No coding knowledge required.

Pros: It is a modern, sleek and compelling theme with unique design and layout which attracts users for the first place. The theme developer has modified some hooks to create a kind of user dashboard which is not possible with WP Job Manager. The user navigation and user experience are also great and there is no bug at the moment because the theme developer is updating the theme continuously to make it better and better.

Cons: It is based on WP Job Manager and it pretty much depends on WP Job Manager so you can not expect something out of the box of WP. It’s a form bases system for every action there is a form like to submit a resume, post jobs but there are no statistics available and also there is no way to restrict a user from the particular area.

JobCareer is not just a job board theme, it’s the best WordPress job portal template choice for anyone who wants a simple job script that makes money.

Pros: If you are looking for something like Monster then this theme is for you because it has got all kinds of functionalities like a modern job board like proper candidate and employer dashboard if you sign up as a candidate you will be automatically redirected to the candidate dashboard and if you sign in as an employer you get to the employer dashboard immediately. The user navigation is very clear, you have different sections for candidates and employers. The automated email system integrated so every action with email notification and you can change the email text easily.

Cons: The loading speed is very slow as compared to other job board themes. It’s a heavyweight theme but you can optimize the site for better performance. The coding is a little bit complicated if you want to modify the functionality you will have to put some great efforts in order to do that. Candidate shortlisting feature is also a little bit complicated because you can not directly shortlist a candidate from the employer dashboard and it is a big flaw in the theme.

Creerfy is not just a job board theme, it’s the best WordPress job portal theme choice for anyone who wants to create a simple complete fully Responsive job portal.

Pros: It is a new theme in the market but making some good sales and getting papular day by day because it has got some extra functionality, for example, there is no way to delete your account own you own but you get this functionality in this to remove your profile form the website if you would like but all other features are pretty much like JobCareer so you have proper user dashboards to manage job applications, job listings, shortlist candidates and create a candidate profile and upload resume.

Cons: There is no particular bug found in the theme so far but still there are few things needs to improve like the candidate profile. The navigation system is poor, There is no restriction to download resume it should be like if you are signing then you can download resume or resume download should be attached with payment package so you will be able to download resume if you have an active job package but overall it is a good theme.
