Review:

Behance is a popular portfolio site that offers businesses looking for freelance designers access to portfolios and profiles for free, candidate matching services, and the opportunity to post jobs and open projects.

Despite it being a U.S.-based site, Behance offers Australian employers a free job posting service. However, the job board is fairly basic compared to similar portfolio sites and other Australian freelance job boards, lacking job ad distribution, social media promotion, and candidate matching tools.

Pros:

  • Behance offers free job postings.
  • Australian employers with active job listings can view the profiles and portfolios of local and global freelancers.
  • The platform provides access to around 40 million job seekers.
  • Posting a job gives employers access to an extensive network of freelancer profiles and portfolios.
  • The platform allows users to re-activate listings after their 30-day expiration at no additional cost.
  • The job board features an employers' dashboard to easily manage job postings.
  • Employers can save the information of potential candidates.
  • A free mobile app is available to download.
  • Site viewing in languages other than English is available.

Cons:

  • The platform is quite basic and does not offer paid plans or any additional visibility options.
  • No applicant tracking system is available.
  • Employers need an Adobe account to post jobs.
  • No Australian-based phone support is provided.

Reputation:

Although the site has a global presence, we were unable to find any online reviews from Australian users. On Trustpilot, Behance has a 2.9-star rating based on almost two dozen reviews. Reviews range from very positive to those advising changes to make the site more user-friendly.

Behance also enjoys a rating of 4.5/5 rating on Sitejabber based on more than 30 reviews. Many users noted the platform's easy-to-use interface and good customer service.

Pricing:

Behance offers a free job posting service. Any Behance member can post jobs or apply for jobs through the dedicated Jobs portal. Employers can also hire freelancers from the platform's extensive candidate network, or purchase a subscription for access to exclusive content.

For project hires, Behance charges a platform fee of 10% plus a $2.00 flat fee for payments under $500.00. Project payments from $501.00 to $2,500.00 are subject to a 5.5% fee. Project payments above $2500.00 are subject to a 3% fee.

Behance vs. ArtsHub Jobs:

ArtsHub Jobs is an Australian arts and creative jobs network where employers can list jobs. Costs start at A$302.50 for a single listing. This is costlier than posting a project on Behance, which offers a free posting service. Behance also gives employers access to an international pool of freelancers for remote projects.

Behance vs. 99designs:

99designs does not charge a monthly subscription fee, instead charging for each type of design job separately. In comparison, Behance offers a free job posting option, making it the more affordable option. Designers on 99designs go through a rigorous application process, while Behance is primarily a portfolio site.

Behance vs. SEEK:

SEEK is a well-known job board that lists various general vacancies. In comparison, Behance gives employers a more targeted approach to hiring both local and international freelance designers. While Behance offers a free job posting service, SEEK's pricing varies and is dependent on the job title and location.
