Lumen was designed specifically for job boards, with its sleek and modern aesthetic, it's the ideal Ghost template to showcase your job listings. The theme offers a high level of customization, a filterable job board (based on tags), and dedicated pages for job posts and collections, ensuring a smooth and efficient browsing experience for your users.

Lumen is perfect for you if you're looking to create a job board, or an easy way to add job posts, or filterable listings to your Ghost site.

Jobs page

The Jobs page is the heart of the Lumen theme, meticulously designed to present job listings in a clear, structured, and user-friendly manner.

The filter section allows visitors to filter job listings based on tags, which could represent job roles, experience levels, employment types, industries, locations, or any other criteria relevant to your platform.

Next to the filter section, you'll find the job feed where all the job listings are displayed. The job feed is designed with flexibility in mind. You can choose between a list layout for a more traditional, straightforward presentation of job listings, or a grid layout for a more visually engaging, card-based display.

Homepage hero

The hero section serves as the first impression of your platform. With Lumen, you can customize this section to best represent your brand. You can set the image position to align with your overall design, you can set the copy and the call-to-action. This allows you to captivate your visitors the moment they land on your page.

Partners section

Showcase the companies you're working with in the Partners section. This section allows you to display a list of company logos, giving your visitors an overview of your network. This not only builds credibility but also gives your visitors an idea of the range of job listings they can expect to find on your platform.

The Categories Custom Template in the Lumen theme offers a simple and effective way to organize and display collections of posts on separate pages. This feature is particularly useful for categorizing your job listings into specific companies or job categories, making it easier for visitors to find the content that's most relevant to them.

When you use the Categories Template for a page, you have to fill the tags section in the Page settings. Those tags will be rendered on your page.

Job post and blog post templates

The default post template in Lumen is specifically designed to display individual job listings in a clear, comprehensive, and engaging format.

The theme comes with a custom blog post template tailored for publishing blog posts or articles on your platform.

Both the job post and blog post templates in Lumen are designed with a focus on readability, user experience, and engagement, ensuring that your content is presented in the best possible way.

Newsletter section

The newsletter subscription section is designed to help you build and grow your email subscriber list. This feature plays a key role in establishing a direct line of communication with your visitors, allowing you to keep them updated about the latest job postings, company news, blog posts, or any other content updates on your platform.

Located strategically on the site near the footer, this section includes a simple form where visitors can enter their email address to subscribe to your newsletter.
