How do I sign up?
Simply sign up here to post your first role and in under 2 minutes you’re done. We’ll notify you when you have your first applicants to review.
What information do I need to provide?
Tell us a few details about the job and your business to set up your account. These details help us match you with only the most suitable local applicants. It only takes a few minutes and we don’t share your mobile or email address with anyone (including applicants).
What happens once I’ve listed a role?
You’ll get an email and an SMS with a link when you have your first applicants to review. Applicants can let you know their availability for the next 48 hours for trials and interviews – this is the best time to contact them. Over the next week we’ll continue to add more people so check back regularly to see the latest list of applicants. The role will be active for 9 days and during this time you can make direct contact with the applicants.
What if I have two or more locations? Can I sign up multiple businesses under one account?
At the moment, each business account needs a unique mobile number to sign up and can only be linked to one street address. We know this makes it difficult if you hire for multiple locations and we are working on a solution. In the meantime, if you have a manager and or business partner you can create other accounts for your other locations. Alternatively, we can a update the location manually so call our team on 03 8525 5606 if you want this done.
What if I need to hire for another role: e.g. a Manager?
Currently, we do not support supervisor or management roles. If you are looking for someone who is capable of taking on more responsibility you could consider running a role and reviewing applicants with 3 or more years experience. You might find that some have already worked in management positions or have the desired experience to be able to take on that role.
