Feedback from some of our happy employers.

“The utilization of your website as a recruitment tool for our company has been revolutionary. You are now our major recruitment resource for Food and Beverage operations. I sincerely believe that you in the near future you will overtake larger more established recruitment agencies who provide offices and face-to-face communication.”

“The Globe Backpackers has been a loyal user of Backpacker Job Board since 2016. The platform is extremely user friendly as an employer, making it quick and easy to post job ads. Backpacker Job Board is always our first port of call when recruiting, and never fails to be our main source for finding backpackers to fill positions we advertise within days, sometimes even hours.”


Bump your ad back to the top of our listings.

Boost - $15

Boosting your ad does two things:

  1. Resets your publish date
  2. Returns your ad to the top of our listings

All our ads are listing in date order with the most recent first. So, over time your ad will drop lower in our listings.
