Our Purpose

LiveHire helps organisations find their people, and people the jobs they love. We believe that finding and working in a fulfilling job is possible for everyone – it’s a vital component to healthy people and societies everywhere.   We believe that empowering candidates to find the jobs they love across their careers is not only good for candidates but companies too.

Organisations make the world go round – it’s the heart of the global economy. We want them to thrive through better talent, tools, and connections. Like all great challenges, we can’t do it by ourselves – we work closely with our clients and partners to push innovation forward, turning LiveHire into the Talent Acquisition & Engagement platform for the world.

We are proud to be helping large and small organisations transform the way they recruit talent, and we’re just getting started.

Our values

We believe there’s always a smarter and better way to do things
Reach. Hire.
Reach. Hire.

A quirky play on words with powerful meaning. We never lose sight of our purpose of bringing people and employers successfully together, human to human, millions of times. Reach hire is also our poke to continuously raise the bar in the code we write, the experiences we design, and the miracles we deliver for our clients and users.

Own it. Together
Own it. Together

Changing the world requires both individual brilliance and exceptional teaming. We play to our strengths, deliver what we promise, trust each other to lead, and always, always, fail forwards together. Achieving the unthinkable takes incredible focus and alignment, but when you own it together, anything is possible.

Be curious. Always
Be curious. Always

Why would you ever give up the opportunity to learn something new? Whether it's a technical hurdle, a client's latest challenge, or designing wonderful user experiences, we're always eager to question why? and ask not tell. We also know the simplest way to show people they are valued is to ask them what they think.

Open. Honestly
Open. Honestly

Fighting for fairness and equal opportunity in the workplace is at the heart of what we do. We bring transparency and sharing to the employment market to foster participation and opportunity for everyone. Within our team we share our knowledge and have open conversations with facts and honesty, because we care about making the best decisions possible.


Our story

We started LiveHire in 2012 when we lived first hand through an industry employment boom (mining in Australia) and saw the dark side to a dysfunctional employment market. People unable to participate or be discovered, as they competed with thousands of others in an applicant process that treated people like paperclips. Companies struggling to find the quality of people they needed, compromising on diversity and escalating wages in a war for talent. The economy foregoing the productivity and growth they could have due to poor utilisation and mobilisation of a willing and able workforce.

Whilst these issues were exacerbated in this environment, the undeniable truth is they actually exist today in almost all industries, with the current technologies and processes working as a handbreak against companies, candidates and economies.

We realised every company was going to have to change the way they recruited, the way they shared talent, the way they fundamentally treated candidates that in many cases were also customers. This was going to lead people (companies and candidates) to being comfortable using the cloud to store, manage, protect, and share their career and talent data, and we wanted to build an architecture, a new way of working, and a technology that would lead towards that vision of the future.

To empower the flow of the worlds talent into, through, and between organisations to create a more agile, open, and awesome working world.
