About us

We bring small
businesses and skilled
workers together

Are you a small business owner
needing to find reliable and skilled
staff without breaking the bank or
trawling countless unskilled
job applicants?

At WEWAL, our mission is to help small businesses to cost and time-effectively find skilled employees to recruit into their business.

WEWAL differs from insipid job boards. Our Founders are small business owners. They get it.

We understand the frustrations and stress that can stem from needing to invest the time and money in finding the right people to join your team. Hundreds sometimes thousands of dollars can be sunk into unsuccessful job advertisements and listings, with ambiguity around the quality and calibre of applicants at the other end of the process.

We also know a big challenge for small business owners in Australia is being time poor.

Whilst spending the time to ensure the right person joins your team is critical, a lot of time is wasted in the filtering of lacklustre and unqualified applications through standard job listing sites.

WEWAL is a platform that inverts the recruitment process for small businesses seeking credible blue-collar and transient employees, whilst reducing the costs and risks associated with conventional recruitment service providers.

WEWAL delivers this service on a low cost pricing model where you only pay for the candidates you want to engage; reducing risks associated with upfront investment in extensive recruitment fees and safeguarding your business cashflow. Free to post, only pay for the people that matter.

This is achieved by leading the recruitment process with a reciprocal employee and employer rating system, leveraging quality referrals to shortcut lengthy screening processes and providing increased transparency to both Employer and Job Seeker.

The platform prides itself on catering to the specific needs of Australian small business by addressing nuances of the transient workforce, showcasing a candidates employability based on value, commitment and what their past employers say about them.
