JOIN OUR SWIISH TEAM


It's been a mammoth 4 years since we started SWIISH.com. First came the blog in 2012, and a couple of years later, we launched our online store. Full of goodies we absolutely love, it's a monthly edit of luxe for less buys we (and you) can't live without.

We've written cookbooks (two of them, with another on the way!), developed new products (helloooo Super Green Superfood Powder and the just released frozen Super Green Smoothies range at Coles & Woollies) and have grown our community reach through our charitable initiative Wish By SWIISH, which grants wishes to women suffering from serious illnesses. We have so much more planned for 2017 and beyond that we cannot wait to share with you all.

But here's the thing - to achieve all of this and to continue to create an online destination that we are insanely proud of - it takes an AMAZING team. A team who share the same passion and the same vision - that you truly can have a fabulous life at an affordable price. At the end of the day, we want women to feel good from the inside out and to do so in a way that doesn't cost the earth.

And now our team is growing (YAY!). We have a number of roles available - some full time, some part time, and some internships.

Regardless of which of these roles it is, a few things are critical to us. Passion. Commitment. A willingness to go above and beyond the role to get the job done. A flexible can-do attitude where no job is too big or too small. Teamwork. Fun! A love for our readers and our customers - they are, after all, our community who we love to engage with every single day. Excellent communication skills, particularly spelling and grammar. The ability to think ahead, to juggle conflicting priorities and keep a calm demeanour (we aren't saving lives here, it's all going to be ok!). A clear and organised mindset.

We have a strong company culture that is grounded in teamwork.  We pride ourselves on delivering engaging content, exceptional service and quality products to our customers.

We offer generous staff discounts, but even more importantly, we are big believers in supporting and celebrating our team members as much as we can outside of work - whether that's when one team member moved home, another's little one started school, and another finished uni - all of these milestones are just as important to us, and we want nothing more than to recognise and celebrate them with our team. We have regular team celebrations throughout the year (and many an impromptu donut delivery to the office!) because having fun is important to us. 

We also have created an environment where autonomy is encouraged. We don't micro-manage, we don't clockwatch. We care about the job getting done and we are happy to be flexible wherever we can with hours, or leave etc because we know that life is about life as much as it is about work.  At the end of the day, we offer the opportunity for you to learn and build your skills in a growing, creative, dynamic, flexible, supportive business.

This role is at the core of our team as it works across the entire business.

You will be responsible for:

  • Blog post creation, including writing content and sourcing imagery

To be successful in this position you will need:

  • Previous writing experience, particularly in the areas of fashion, beauty, health or general lifestyle
  • Organisational skills that are second to none – you run a to-do list with military precision… nothing slips through the cracks. You need to be able to plan ahead and adjust your workday accordingly during peak times
  • Exceptional communication skills, including the ability to edit documents, and use correct spelling and grammar (you definitely know the difference between 'your' and 'you're'; and 'there', 'their' and 'they're')

  • Exceptional attention to detail
  • The ability to demonstrate initiative and think ahead

  • To enjoy being part of a small, tight-knit, hardworking and fun team culture

  • A flexible, can-do attitude (no job is too big or too small)
  • Experience working with Shopify online retail programs is highly regarded
  • To enjoy being part of a small, tight-knit, hardworking and fun team culture
