JobEngine is more than just a theme, it’s a product that includes all the functionality required to create and run a fully-fledged job board website with WordPress. This app-theme has been developed by the EngineThemes team who specialise in making these highly functional WordPress themes.
With JobEngine, as well as getting a modern and clean design for your site, you also get all the necessary features for building a job listings website. Some of these features include:
- Display job listings and accept online applications
- Monetise the site with multiple payment plan options
- Use email templates to notify users on certain events
- Ajax powered filters and navigation to minimise page loads
Site admin users can create and manage all the job listings via the WordPress backend, while those publishing job vacancies can add and manage their own listings via the frontend of the website, saving them from having to navigate the WordPress admin dashboard.
Job seekers and the companies posting jobs on your JobEngine-powered site both have the option of creating a user profile on the site. This allows them to store information which can make listing new positions and submitting applications a more efficient process.
The theme comes with a handy wizard which guides you through the setup process, making it very easy to get started, despite the myriad features of JobEngine.
This theme has everything you need to build and manage a job board with WordPress, with the whole package being very easy to use, as well as having a visually appealing and responsive design.
Jobify is a job board theme featuring frontend submissions, WooCommerce integration, a fully responsive design, easy setup/video tutorials and more. Jobify is by one of our all-time favorite ThemeForest authors, Astoundify.
Jobify is a great looking theme that works closely with the free WP Job Manager plugin in order to enable you to build a functional job listings website using WordPress. By using a standalone plugin to deliver much of the basic job board features, it does give you some room for changing themes in the future, without losing access to the features your site has come to rely on. The theme also integrates with a number of premium plugins which can help you add even more features to your job board such as paid listings and restricted access.
When it comes to setting up your site, the theme uses a homepage widget area which means you can easily drag and drop the different content widgets into place in order to determine what is featured on your site’s homepage. This can include widgets such as image and content sliders, blog posts, maps and stats to name just a few. Jobify also includes a few options for easily customising the colours of the theme. You can also import dummy content to flesh out the site before adding your own content.
While this theme is well documented, the use of third party plugins and the lack of a setup wizard can make it a bit more difficult to get up and running compared to an all in one package such as JobEngine. However, if you like the idea of using plugins to add the necessary functionality to your site, helping to keep your content and presentation separate, Jobify has the upper hand.
JobRoller from AppThemes is marketed as the #1 WordPress job board theme and is available as part of the AppThemes club packages or as an individual purchase. With this theme the focus is equally divided between job seekers and employers making it a good all-purpose choice.
Job seekers can create profiles and upload their CVs allowing their details to be searchable by those seeking to recruit new staff. Applications can be made to listings published on the site through the frontend forms, making the whole process very user friendly. The theme also includes a new recruiter role, giving these users extra permissions when it comes to browsing profiles.
The theme includes five job types for organising the advertised vacancies; however you can also create your own custom job types, each with their own fields for better storing industry-specific data and details.
JobRoller can be expanded by deploying any of the many child themes and plugins available from the AppThemes marketplace. These optional plugins allow you to insert adverts into your site, increase the features for handling resumes, create a JobRoller mobile app, and also populate your job site with listings from Career Jet and Simply Hired.
If you want an all-in-one job board solution then the responsive JobRoller is well worth checking out.
Jobera is a job portal WordPress theme that allows you to create a useful and easy to use job listings website. Like Jobify this theme has been built to integrate with the free WP Job Manager plugin, in order to handle the required functionality for building a site of this type. The theme also makes use of the Resume Manager and WC Paid Listings plugins which are included with the theme package.
Job seekers and employers both get their own portal to view the site through. Job seekers can use the frontend submission forms to apply for listed vacancies, submitting their cover letter and resume, which then gets routed directly to the email inbox of the employer who created the listing. Jobera also includes a new recruiter role which is ideal for third parties who help connect job seekers and employers in order to facilitate the hiring process.
The design of the theme is fully responsive for users on a range of devices and Jobera is also retina ready. When configuring the site you can choose from 100s of fonts thanks to the integration with Google Fonts. The PSD files are included allowing you to edit all the images used in the construction of the theme with Photoshop.
For a great looking theme that gives you plenty of options for customising its appearance, as well as all the job board features you’d expect, Jobera is a good theme for those building a job site with WordPress.
Job Board from Templatic is an all-in-one app-theme for building a job directory website with WordPress. After the 1-click installation, both jobs and resumes can be created and managed on the site, with custom categories available for organising both types of content more effectively.
Job listings can also be organised using the included job types, however users are free to create their own additional types for creating a more relevant structure for their site’s listings. As job listings are submitted via the frontend submission forms, the forms can be edited to include any additional fields that are required for handling the type of listings your site features.
When using the Job Board theme from Templatic, your site can be monetised by charging a fee for submissions. You get the option to create a number of payment levels and pricing packages ranging from a single submission through to multiple listing packages and on-going subscriptions. You can even create discount coupons to help promote your site and assist in generating interest in your service. As the theme comes with support for multiple payment gateways, you get plenty of options for collecting payments. The homepage is widget-ready, giving you a good amount of options for how visitors are greeted upon arrival at your site.
If you want an easy to setup all-in-one job board solution then this app-theme from Templatic is a great choice.

While the Job Board Theme can be used to list regular vacancies and accept applications and resumes, the ability for applicants to bid on jobs, in a freelance-style helps this theme stand out from the competition. As with sites like oDesk, the theme provides an internal messaging system for those working together on a contract or application, allowing them to communicate with each other.
With Job Board Theme you also get lots of options for customising the colours and fonts using the built-in tool and the theme even comes with access to a selection of child themes for applying a totally different design to your site.
Whether you want to create a job bidding site, or just a regular employment listings site, Job Board Theme gives you plenty of options for doing so.

With JobJockey visitors can register as either a job seeker or an employer, with each role getting access to the specific features they need.
