JobBoardWP – Job Board Listings and Submissions


JobBoardWP is an easy-to-use and lightweight plugin that enables you to add job board functionality to your website. With a clean, modern UI, job seekers can view and search for jobs, whilst employers can submit jobs to your job board and manage their jobs from the jobs dashboard.


The plugin adds three pages to the front-end of your website:

Jobs page

The jobs page displays a list of jobs with keyword and location search. Job seekers can also filter jobs to show only remote jobs or certain job types/categories.

Post Job page

The post job page is where users can submit a job via the job submission form. You can choose for jobs to appear automatically on the jobs page or require admin approval. The form enables users to add personal, job and company details. Users can save their form as a draft and preview the job before submitting the job.

Jobs Dashboard page

The jobs dashboard page is where users manage their submitted jobs. The shortcode on the page outputs a list of jobs a user has submitted. The user can see the status of their jobs, when they expire and manage their jobs. Actions users can take on their job dashboard include: deleting jobs, editing jobs, continuing job submission, marking a job as filled and re-submitting a job.


The plugin makes it easy for you to manage your job board from the wp-admin.


As the admin you can see a list of all jobs and filter by status (published, pending, expired etc). You can view, edit and approve jobs from the wp-admin jobs list.

Add New

You can also create your own new jobs directly from the wp-admin.

Job Types

Job types allow users to select the type of job they are listing when they submit a job. The plugin comes with 7 built in job types (Freelance, Full-time, Graduate, Internship, Part-time, Temporary, Voulnteer) and each tag is assigned a default tag color (tag colors can be changed easily). You can delete, add and edit the job types.

Job Categories

You can create custom categories for jobs in the wp-admin and allow users to select a category for their job submission when submitting a job.


The plugin provides various settings so you can customize how your job board looks and functions. You can also enable/disable emails and change email text.


The plugin has been built to work with Google search by adding structured data to job listings. This allows job listings to appear in Google job search results.

Thank you so much for building this amazing plugin. It is allowing us to get legal aid organizations higher up in job search results which hopefully will result in better recruitment for legal services for low-income folks!

Tried so many other plugins, and then came to this one hoping I get all the features needed. The backend is very easy to set up. There is however no option to Feature a job and rank it above regular job posts. Fix that and the location error on the add new job page, and this plugin would make 5/5 easy. – Updated – Feb 17, 2023 Thank you for looking at my review and fixing the problem promtly.
