Role in HR and job boards

Hi everyone, I have got a couple of questions for all of you, I hope you can help me. I'm new to the Swiss market and totally puzzled by job boards. Long story short, my partner and I will relocate from London to Zurich in a couple of months and she'll be looking for roles within HR. She's currently learning German (but still at the A1-A2 level) and obviously speaks perfect English and a couple of other languages. Although she has a huge experience in international contexts and is bombarded by offers in London, she's finding hard to get a positive response from international companies through job boards. She seems to get the pre-compiled "regret" response" from them even if the role is exactly the same she performs in London. I understand fierce competition but I think there may be something else

My questions to you guys are
1) do job boards work?
2) when you found a job, was it through job boards or recruiters?
3) Are roles on job boards usually already filled ie. a candidate is already available to the firm and publication on job boards is just to show that some search in the market has been performed?

Thanks to all who can support, cheers
