Hireup is a socially-driven startup using technology to revolutionise the way Australians with disability find, hire and manage their own support workers. Hireup is Australia’s fastest growing tech company, and with such rapid growth we’re looking to expand our small but dedicated team of (big) thinkers, builders, and doers. For our next recruit, we’re looking for a Content Writer to join our Sydney-based Communications Team.

We have strong brand resonance within our community and our writing is a core asset in our work to drive meaningful social change for thousands of people with disability in Australia.

Great communications to us is about more than just marketing and advertising, it’s about looking at the broader picture and listening to the stories within our community in order to start conversations, inspire action and encourage others to share in our vision.

The ideal candidate for Hireup will share these beliefs and know how to use them in fueling the Hireup brand love.
