I have signed up with Hireup for 6 months and have not had a single job offer. Don't see many jobs on offer. Whenever there are some jobs, there are tons of worker fighting for one job! Depressing!
Pick the time and client that you want to work with.
Clients can be very specific of whom they want but not knowing really the carer's abilities.

Employees are always under constant pressure to find work. You don't even get enough hours. HireUp doesn't really look after helping support workers when they are facing difficulty to find work. Also, in this line of work, support workers have no support from anyone when things don't go in smooth way.

All online learning is extremely well presented and easy to navigate. Hireup is a friendly and supportive company for staff and clients, no issue is too small to discuss.

A typical workday involves me showering, grooming, dressing and taking my clients to school and picking them up from school with my own car. the most enjoyable part of the job is seeing my clients and their families happy
So rewarding knowing you can be approached and make a meaningful difference to the lives of others. The choice was always up to the people looking for support.

I really enjoyed working at hireup, it offers both the worker and the client's the flexibility which is essential. Wages are excellent and the module is very easy and user friendly to navigate to.

Hireup is a great platform for people to work on their own schedules. However in saying this, it is important to note that if you aren't flexible with your clients then they may not want you coming back. Also clients can cancel on you and change your hours without any notice. So job security is the lowest of the low.
Hourly rate, flexibility
No job security

Hi, thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. Hireup provides flexibility to both the support worker and the person seeking support to request and accept bookings on their terms. As casual employees of Hireup, all of our support workers are covered by our cancellation policy in case bookings are changed or cancelled last minute. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch on (02) 9113 5933 or at: firstname.lastname@example.org
HireUp uses a new model where clients and support workers communicate together to organise support. In my case, this model has worked well for both my clients and myself. My clients are able to choose their own support workers instead of getting complete random people each shift. For me, it has allowed me to choose clients and shifts that work around my own schedule. It can be hard to find clients initially, but once you make connections with people it is smooth sailing from there. I would definitely recommend working on a casual basis with HireUp!
I can see what is being attempted here and admired it at first sight, but its just not working. Zero shifts. Next to zero communication. The constant looking at job boards and attempting to contact potential customers, who rarely respond, is frustrating. One customer kept asking me what my availability was. Every time I said 24/7, but they'd ask the same question again and again. Giving customers choice is great, but unless the staff are getting shifts, they'll naturally look elsewhere and eventually leave. This gives the customer less choice in the long run. A very real flaw in the business plan. Reading other reviews I see the same problem repeated right across Australia. I'll keep trying, but have already started looking elsewhere.

Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback, and sorry to hear about your experience on Hireup. We know it can be frustrating to not receive a response from people you've contacted, and are working to improve this by encouraging all our users to respond. The availability of work can depend on things such as your location, how many people are seeking support in your area, or whether you've joined Hireup to work with someone you already know. We've generally found that while it can take some time to get started and build up a team (by using our search and message function), once that's happened and a team has been built, it's usually a smooth process for both support workers and people seeking support. If you'd like to contact us, we'd love a chat: (02) 9113 5933 or email@example.com.
This job is self-managed. Hireup pay rates are excellent compared to all other disability services. This company is based in Sydney and employees sign up through an online platform. It is good for people seeking casual work who want to manage what they do themselves.
