First Peoples First

At Belong we are committed to Acknowledging the First Nations Peoples of Australia, as Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land and waters. Australia’s First Peoples are the oldest continuous culture on the planet. We humbly pay respects to their Elders past and present.

How do we Belong?

Belong started in October 2013 with the purpose of helping Australians to get great value home broadband and – since October 2017 – great value mobile plans.  While connectivity services should be boring, it is an essential service in modern life, and it causes grief when it doesn’t work or when customers feel like they are being ripped off.  So we try to keep things simple, give customers choice and control, and take responsibility when things don't go to plan.

How will you Belong?

Together we’re different.  We don’t have to be the same to Belong.

The battle for talent is intense, and we are acutely aware that good people have many options.  Our success depends heavily on building a high quality team, and we are grateful that you are considering taking a chance on us.

We are building a community of people who are encouraged to bring their whole selves to work.  In a market characterised by brutal levels of competitive intensity, sameness is the enemy, and difference is a source of competitive advantage.  We don’t want you to join just to “fit in”, we want to you to bring your magnificent weirdness to work and Belong.  One of the reasons we are interested in you is because we are excited by the impact you might have on our culture.

Hopefully, this celebration of difference enhances our ability to understand customers, and to obsess about their struggles and aspirations.  When we get it right (it doesn’t always happen but we try), this understanding helps us to develop breakthroughs in product, service and strategy; breakthroughs that make a difference for customers and for our business. 

While some effort has been poured into writing this Success Profile, we also acknowledge that it will get chucked in the bottom drawer on day one.  That’s because you know that hubris is the enemy, you agree that “ownership” of functions is meaningless in the modern world, and you share our passion for hustle, having a go, curiosity, relentless cooperation, and helping everyone in the team to win … for our people and for our customers.

We are looking for someone who:

·         Challenges the norm.

·         Approaches solutions with an open mind and is Human Centric Design driven.

·         Communicates. The good, the bad and the ugly.  Always give it and receive it with the best intent of getting the right outcome for our customers, employees & partners.

·         Never walks past a problem – be it a code error, a fire hazard or a messy kitchen – raise it, fix it, own it, and encourage your colleagues to do the same.
