Since 2006, the Germany-based platform has been used by U.K. employers to advertise job vacancies and connect with professionals across the country. Employers benefit from the free job posting service, as well as the paid upgrades for increased job ad exposure. U.K. job seekers can filter jobs by location to connect with local employers.

While Locanto Joba is not a traditional job board and lacks certain hiring services, it's a good option for local employers looking to maximize their listings' exposure at affordable rates. However, job ads may get lost amid the other classified ad types listed on the site.

Locanto Jobs vs. Gr8 UK Jobs:

Gr8 UK Jobs and Locanto Jobs both allow employers to post general vacancies. While Locanto Jobs is a free job posting service, Gr8 UK Jobs charges £420.00 +VAT per post, making it the costlier option. However, Gr8 UK Jobs features a wider variety of recruitment tools, including CV database access and applicant tracking tools.

Locanto Jobs vs. Gumtree Jobs:

Both Gumtree Jobs and Locanto Jobs are high-traffic classifieds websites that employers can use to recruit professionals in a range of industries. Gumtree Jobs' pricing starts at £14.95 +VAT per post, whereas Locanto Jobs offers both free and paid options, making it the budget-friendlier choice of the two.

Locanto Jobs vs. is one of the U.K.'s largest job boards and features an extensive CV database, employer profiles, and screening questions — all tools that Locanto Jobs lacks. While Locanto Jobs stands out as the more affordable option, it is not a traditional job board, and may offer employers access to a larger audience of job seekers.
