Communo connects employers and recruiters with over 60,000 freelancers across the U.K and abroad. For the employers' benefit, all freelancers are vetted and matched with the right project through a scoring system. The site's features include access to social media links, project postings, and invites to informational events.
However, when compared to local competitors, such as If You Could Jobs and YunoJuno, Communo does not have the best exposure in the country, advertising very few local opportunities. In addition to its poor reach, Communo also charges employers in U.S. dollars.

Additionally, none of Communo's plans are available in pounds sterling and the platform only advertises opportunities to Communo members.
Communo vs. YunoJuno:
YunoJuno and Communo are both freelance marketplaces where employers are matched with qualified candidates. However, while Communo is a global marketplace for those in marketing and technology, YunoJuno targets the U.K. job market and employers can post vacancies for a range of industries.
