Working at are-able

Why are-able?

are-able is a not-for-profit organisation, which means we tend to attract staff who want to help their communities, rather than themselves. But we also know you need money to live and pay bills. So money definitely matters. Here are a few carrots to help sweeten the deal:

  • The option to salary package through Eziway (tax benefits of working for a not-for-profit). This lets you maximise your income by minimising the tax you pay, leaving you with more money in your pocket for the things you love.
  • Company issued laptops, mobile phones, and the use of fleet cars (if relevant for your role). No need to use your own car or to pay tax on a company car. We understand these tools are necessary for your job, and we don’t try to build this into your salary offer.
  • Me days & bonus leave (see above). We thought getting paid to have days off was worth mentioning again.

Although we are ‘one team, one dream’, it’s likely that – if you are joining are-able – you will be working within one of our four teams/departments:
