Frequently asked questions

I am worried that my current employer might see my profile on Beam. Can I hide my profile but still apply for roles?

All good. On Beam, employers can’t see your profile unless you’ve applied for one of their roles. You are in control of who knows you’re on Beam.

Does Beam only accept parents?

We believe flexibility is for everyone. If you have extensive professional experience and are great at what you do, we’d love you to sign up.

Is there a fee to join Beam?

No. It’s free for part-time professionals to sign up and apply for roles. Businesses pay a fee to connect with Beam’s stellar talent.

I’ve applied for a role. What happens next?

  • You can see any of the roles you’ve applied for in the “Applied jobs” section of your talent dashboard
  • If you’re a fit for the role, the Beam employer will schedule an interview with you.
  • If you’re successful, that’s brilliant. Confirm the salary and terms directly with the employer.

  • How many people apply for each role?

    Each job is different so our advice is if you’re interested, apply quickly. Beam employers hire as soon as they’ve found their unicorn.

    How long until I hear back about the job I’ve applied for?

    This really varies — sometimes employers respond to applications asap and sometimes it can take a few weeks. The Beam team stays in touch with businesses to keep things moving as quickly as possible. If you’d like help with something, please get in touch.

    How is the salary for a job worked out?

    Companies will usually post a salary or hourly rate range (generally expressed as “full-time equivalent including super”). Because Beam is a marketplace there is room for final negotiation and rates can vary based on the candidate’s skillset and experience level. Feel free to contact Beam at any point for salary/hourly rate guidance.

    Does Beam hold insurance for the network?

    We carry Public Liability, Professional Indemnity and Work Cover Insurances. For permanent positions, insurance will be carried by your employer. For independent contractors, you will be required to carry Public Liability, Professional Indemnity and Work Cover Insurances prior to commencing work.
