SkipTheDrive vs. Reed.co.uk:
As a general and highly trafficked U.K. job board, Reed.co.uk offers a far larger local target audience in the U.K. than SkipTheDrive. While Reed.co.uk is a good option when looking to recruit locally only, it is less ideal for sourcing internationally-based remote workers. For that, SkipTheDrive is the better and more affordable option.
SkipTheDrive vs. We Work Remotely:
We Work Remotely boasts a larger audience reach than SkipTheDrive but also has a much steeper starting price per post. Unlike SkipTheDrive, We Work Remotely offers optional upgrades to further enhance job post visibility. However, Skip The Drive offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee or a full refund, which We Work Remotely doesn't.
SkipTheDrive vs. Working Nomads:
SkipTheDrive is more affordable than Working Nomads (US$99.00 vs. US$199.00 starting price), although Working Nomads offers a 50% discount on job postings that are relisted after the initial 30-day posting period. While both platforms have several thousands of email subscribers, neither has a searchable resume database or optional job post upgrades.
