Review:

WordPress Jobs is WordPress's official job site where anyone can post vacancies for creating or maintaining a website, blog, or app via WordPress's open-source technology. WordPress Jobs caters solely to WordPress developers, designers, writers, and more.

While WordPress Jobs is a free site, U.K. employers may not receive a lot of exposure on their positions as WordPress Jobs lacks any sort of country site or location filter. WordPress Jobs also lacks additional features that U.K. employers may find helpful, such as applicant tracking and candidate matching.

Highlights:

  • Employers can remotely recruit global WordPress experts for free.
  • As a free site, WordPress Jobs is more affordable than other local teach job boards, such as Technojobs.
  • Job posts are displayed for 21 days unless earlier removal is requested.
  • Jobs are listed by category, making them easier to find.
  • Employers directly receive applications via email.

Shortcomings:

  • The platform lacks a dedicated U.K. site.
  • Jobs are limited to WordPress positions, whereas other local sites like Technojobs and Toptal cater to a variety of tech positions.
  • There is no location filter.
  • Job post moderation may delay job posting for up to 24 hours after submission.
  • There is no candidate matching available.
  • No access to a resume database is provided.
  • No candidate search filters are available.
  • No candidate management tools or ATS integration are included.
  • No employer brand promotion options exist.
  • No high visibility posts or syndication of jobs to other job boards is offered.
