Employment Hero is looking for a Junior Financial Analyst


Employment Hero is one of the fastest growing Australian Technology SaaS startups. Our mission is to permanently change employment to make it easier and more rewarding for everyone. Our cloud-based people management platform combines HR, payroll, and benefits to empower dynamic young businesses and their people to reach their full potential.

Our Sydney HQ is looking for a new Employment Hero Super Star to join our dynamic finance team. Following on from our massive growth as well as investment from big guns such as Seek, Airtree Ventures and One Ventures, we are looking for a Junior Financial Analyst in this newly created role to help us sustain this growth and prepare for the future. Reporting to our Finance Manager, this star will be responsible for commandeering our accounts, cutting costs and adding value through developing solutions to problems you encounter throughout your journey with Employment Hero.

The ideal candidate has shown ambition to grow in their previous role and is a self-starter, not willing to settle. You will be fed with support and mentoring from our CFO and Finance Manager and encouraged to develop your technical and interpersonal skills where you will constantly be challenged on a day to day basis, while completing your fully paid CPA. Experience with IT is advantageous as it's what we specialise in, and you will be using technology to solve problems.

This role is not for the faint-hearted - you will be expected to handle ambiguity in the role and be able re-prioritise when the CEO decides one morning to launch a new product. You will have multiple career pathways opportunities, but it is entirely up to you to make this job your own and steer your own direction.
