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.
As an organisation with a very personal story at its core, the Content Writer will play an important role as the voice of Hireup. Writing and collaborating on content for all kinds of different channels, including our blog and online presence as well as special purpose pieces, like this one in the Griffith Review. 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. Our aim is to use the power of thoughtful, strategic and effective writing to build a community movement that amplifies the voice of Australians with disability. The ideal candidate for Hireup will share these beliefs and know how to use them in fueling the Hireup brand love.

And, yes, we know that $70,000 in Australian dollars isn’t quite that much when converted to U.S. currency. But let’s get real; $55,000 U.S. to start ain’t bad. Ain’t bad at all.
