Behance needs no introduction. It’s a go-to for design inspiration, but also has a job board with full-time and freelance jobs across the world.

An essential tool in the designer’s toolbox, Behance is a great source of inspiration, with thousands of designers proudly sharing their creative work.

You can also post your own design work on the site, making it an easy way to create a portfolio and expose your work to potential recruiters.

There are hundreds of design jobs on their job board. You can narrow jobs down to different countries and find both permanent and freelance design jobs.

A great looking website with a range of jobs across the design spectrum

I’ll admit, I’m a huge fan of the design of this site. It’s simple, it has eye catching illustrations and that logo is 👌. You can tell it’s a job site for creatives.

If You Could has a broad range of design and creative jobs, from traditional graphic design to 3D and even Fabric and Haberdashery. And whilst most jobs are in the UK, there are a few in other major cities such as New York.

Bonus: Design Events

Design events can help you to meet new designers, grow your professional network and find your next design job. In fact, I found my first full-time design job after going to a portfolio surgery design event!
