Launched in 2017, Communo is a fairly new platform that targets employers looking to recruit marketing, design, and sales freelancers. While Communo advertises both full-time and freelance projects, it currently has very few Australian-based opportunities listed.
Communo's local reach does not compare to leading competitors, such as SEEK and OzLance. The majority of available work is either remote or based in the U.S., and all posting plans are quoted in U.S. dollars. Additionally, Communo only advertises available work to other members, excluding most of the Australian job market.
- Local companies, such as First Focus and AirTree Ventures, have used Communo to hire freelance talent.
- The platform offers both subscription plans and single job posting options.
- Communo has over 60,000 members that range in expertise and experience.
- The platform advertises freelance and remote projects from across the world.
- There is no placement fee for employers hiring freelancers.
- Communo allows interested users to explore its website for free using a guest account.
- All talent is vetted by the site, assuring employers of quality hires.
- The site hosts webinars and informational events that help companies improve their hiring strategies.
- Communo only advertises vacancies to its members, which excludes a large part of the job market.
- There are no free project posting options available.
- Candidates are matched to projects using a scoring system, which may deter employers looking for a hands-on hiring approach.
- Pricing is not available in Australian dollars.
There are a limited number of online reviews of Communo. However, we did find one review on Reddit that noted the site's reputation for syndicated jobs, very few new job posting options, and charges for upgraded features. Communo's app received a rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars on the Apple Store.

Unlike Communo, OzLance does not charge to post projects on the platform.
Communo vs. Yeeply:
Yeeply and Communo are similar in that both competitors are freelance hiring sites. However, the two offer different pricing systems. While Communo charges US$400.00 for a single listing, Yeeply works on a quote system. Unlike Yeeply, Communo only targets freelancers in marketing, design, and technology.
Communo vs. SEEK:
While SEEK is a well-known, Australian job board that caters to multiple industries, Communo is a global marketplace that primarily targets freelancers in the marketing and tech fields.
