Stile creates world-class resources for science teachers. Resources that help them bring their classes to life. Our resources are used by 1 in 3 Australian secondary schools. All our resources are delivered through our web-based teaching and learning platform and it’s all been built right here in Melbourne. Every single day, over 100,000 students and 8,000 teachers around the country (and increasingly around the world) use our resources.
In the past nine years, Stile has grown from a small start up to over 50 employees and it’s only just the beginning... We’re growing in Melbourne and expanding internationally (to the US)!
And we want to do it quite quickly...
Our success over these past years are driven by the incredible people at Stile. Made up of educators, scientists, engineers, and designers, everyday our ‘Stilists’ are driven by our mission to increase science literacy and critical thinking.
As we approach a decade into the science education space, we’re looking at the next chapter of Stile and that includes growing our 50-person ‘dream team’ to 150 across Australia and the US in the next few years. This isn’t a growth spurt by any means, it's a continuous, genuine growth phase.
Here’s where you come in:
We need a talented in-house Recruiter to help us attract and hire the best people to grow our passionate team.

You have at least three years experience in a similar position doing full-cycle recruitment.
You have at least one year of experience in technical recruitment.
You know the ins and outs of full-cycle recruitment and attracting the best talent.
You live and breathe for a delightful candidate experience.
Working with passionate, like-minded people is important to you.
You are incredibly organised, efficient, and you enjoy working with others to be the same.
You have good time management skills and have no problem juggling multiple projects and tasks simultaneously.
You have great written and verbal communication skills.
You’re confident working in a team environment and independently.
You’re proactive. Specifically, you love the idea of identifying inefficiencies and seeking to improve them.
You are based in Melbourne or nearby.
While this role will primarily be recruiting for technical roles, you must be comfortable hiring for all types of positions across the business.
At its very core this role is responsible for attracting and hiring outstanding people to join the Stile team.
A few ways you can do this is by:
Managing end-to-end recruitment: From sourcing and posting job ads to negotiating offers, you’ll provide a delightful experience for anyone who considers working at Stile.
Recruitment strategies: You’ll know the ins and outs of Stile’s key business objectives and plan how we’ll recruit the best people for our open positions.
Networking events, campaigns, and meet-ups: You’ll manage the end-to-end process of hosting and sponsoring a variety of events that allow us to network and meet great and diverse talent.
Boosting our employer brand: Stile has a lot to offer but we’re not sure it’s being showcased properly. You’ll work with our team to ensure that it’s being done!
You’ll be joining the People & Culture team as our first recruiter. You’ll be fully integrated and supported by the team.
At this time, the coordination of the recruitment process will be spread across the team but as we grow, there is potential to hire more resources in the recruitment capacity.
This is a full-time, permanent role based in Melbourne, Victoria.
Stile HQ is located in the CBD. Flexibility is important to us! You’ll be able to work between Stile HQ and from the comfort of your own home.
Flexibility. We expect that you work hard, but you’ll have flexible hours and you’re the master of your own schedule. While initially we’ll want you to be around the office while you’re getting to know the place, there will be opportunities to work remotely later on.
Insight into the business. Working with the co-founders means you’ll really get the knowledge you need to succeed. You’ll understand the inner workings of Stile and what makes the business tick.
Colleagues worth working with. You’ll get to know a 50-strong team of educators, scientists, artists and engineers. Imagine a workplace where everyone genuinely cares about, and is working towards, improving scientific literacy amongst our young citizens. We hold ourselves, and each other, to a high standard and love what we do.
A fantastic office environment. We’re only just starting to use it again properly (thanks COVID), and we really missed it. It has a huge central kitchen, where the team often gathers to cook for each other - turns out we have some pretty amazing chefs, lots of places to put your feet up to work and even shower if you’ve decided to ride in.
Support always. Stile is its people, and it’s important we are creating an environment where you’re supported, happy and able to do your best work. We have strong management and feedback frameworks, an Employee Assistance Program, a progressive parental leave policy and much more.
Team bonding time. We enjoy each other's company and doing non-work stuff together from time to time. We’ve got a dedicated team within the company that put on regular events for us, from BBQs to Bubble Soccer and even an annual snow trip (snow sports optional)!
