Hireup users Andrew and Sarah both love a crowd and performing for it. Together, they go busking in Sydney's Circular Quay. This is their story.
Hireup is an online platform revolutionising the way Australians with disability find, hire and manage their own support workers. For too long, people with disability have had to accept support work on someone else’s terms. So we’re taking a new approach and we’re doing it by investing in technology and the community. We’re proud to have built a platform that is secure and easy to use, transparent and flexible. A system that matches people with disability and support workers not just on qualification but on shared interests.
Good support work is about more than just the right credentials. We believe that bringing people with disability and support workers together over their own common ground, whatever it may be, will encourage meaningful connections, enduring relationships and (ultimately) healthy communities.
For people with disability and their families, Hireup allows users to manage their own employment relationships with support workers. We take care of administrative back end functions like tax and super payments, insurance, payroll and workplace health and safety so you don’t have to.
For support workers, Hireup is an easy way to find flexible, meaningful work. As an employee of Hireup, we are responsible for some of the more complicated legal and administrative burdens of being a support worker (payroll, insurance), freeing you up to manage your own workload and client team. – less
