The flexibility to build a career you love.
We offer passionate and talented marketing professionals the opportunity to develop their skills in a truly flexible and rewarding environment.
Brilliant Digital is a marketing agency with a difference. We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver amazing results for every client, every time. And we do it all while working from home. We are living the dream.
When Deb Croucher founded Brilliant Digital more than 10 years ago, she wanted to share her passion for digital marketing… and she also wanted to grow a flexible workplace where she could put her family first.
At every step along the way as Deb has grown the business, her commitment to flexibility has not faltered.
The Brilliant Digital work environment today is as flexible as it gets.
Each member of our team works from home with the option to join us at our co-working space in Western Sydney one day each week. We use tools such as Zoom and Google Drive to collaborate and connect with each other and our clients. It’s not conventional… but it works.
We still have client deadlines and expectations… and we all manage those around our family and personal needs. Flexibility isn’t just something we talk about for a lucky few in our business. It’s universal and just the way we work.
We have the best clients… really! When you are as uncompromising on your values as we are, you tend to attract like-minded clients into your business.
We work with clients across a range of industries… manufacturing, professional and financial services, luxury and lifestyle brands and family businesses. Despite their differences, the service we deliver is the same… we create a brand strategy, build a killer website, fill it with brilliant content and grow their digital footprint.
We love our clients because they trust us to do our job, respect our flexible workplace culture… and they are great people to work with.
Our clients love us because we deliver what we promise and get them results.
We have full confidence in our team to do the job we’ve hired them to do… and with that confidence and trust comes the opportunity to really grow a career you love.
We don’t hire based on a list of skills on a resume. We hire on talent, potential, passion and cultural fit. Where our team members have skill gaps, we work with them to upskill.
We are a small business but we play big. As a digital marketing agency we offer the chance to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty, applying your existing skills and experience to take your career to the next level.
There are no egos in our team… ‘presenteeism’ is not a thing… and you won’t find cliques or anyone protecting their ‘turf’. And that is because we have inspiring leaders who truly lead by example.
Our culture is second to none. We expect that our team members are kind and respectful in every interaction with colleagues, clients and suppliers. And family first is a value that we will never budge on. This isn’t just lip service… it’s driven through every corner of the business from the top down.
And our leaders are brilliant at what they do. Together we deliver a cutting-edge digital marketing solution through powerful websites and only the best digital content.
“My previous role was a 9-5 in government, and I worked Saturdays for 10 years of my life as well. The volume of work was high… stress levels were high…
Then add a child and family life into that, which means long hours at day care – it’s not much fun,” explains Hayley.
Making the best use of her time is vital. She makes sure she uses every hour of the week productively. Not doing a 9-5 has been truly liberating.
“At Brilliant Digital I don’t miss out on work, I don’t miss out on drop off or pick up… I’m there if my daughter grazes her knees and for Christmas… and I get to the gym… I don’t miss out on anything.
I think everybody should be working flexibly – the value of your time is just huge. I have a pretty fantastic balance.”
It has affected her whole family in an enormously positive way.
“My little one is not in the greatest health and that is so much extra stress no one needs. Having a sick family when you’ve still got to work – the pressure and stress… But my little one is thriving and that comes down to my work-life balance. We’re happier and healthier… it’s awesome.”
The best things about the role, in Hayley’s opinion, are the clients and the people she works with.
“I’m surrounded by talented, caring people. It’s awesome learning about our clients’ industries and businesses and helping them to achieve their goals. My favourite part is the people.
We offer a fantastic service. And I love my job.”
“My previous work-life balance was non-existent. I worked in a very creative, but very hectic, environment. If something needed to be done that day, it needed to be done that day,” Jo says.
“It didn’t matter that maybe you had kids who needed to be picked up from school or someone was sick. It was never really going to be a great long-term solution for a family.”
Working at Brilliant Digital is an entirely different scenario for Jo and it comes down to the core values – family is very important to everyone and you can use all 24 hours in a day.
She can be there for the kids’ activities and be a good parent for them. And she can be a good, creative storyteller.
“My family is much happier now that I’m at Brilliant Digital; they see a lot more of me. Both teens have said I’m more present,” Jo adds.
“The best things about my role would be freedom and flexibility…
…and the support and the opportunity to learn new things every day and be part of such a progressive business with core values that align with mine.”
“My previous work meant spending a lot of time away from home. I had a long commute, and that was affecting the children because they’d spend a long day in care. With my work now, I can pick up my daughter and walk her home from school. My kids are benefiting from having their dad around a lot more,” Danny explains.
“It is a challenge trying to fit the work in around the family. But of course, at the same time that affords a lot of freedom to work the way I want to. Sometimes that can mean a lot of late nights, but that suits me as I’m a bit of a night owl.”
Danny’s family has benefited greatly from his flexible working arrangement. The days at care are shorter for the kids. And they’re more relaxed. His daughter is performing better at school because he can spend more time with her on her school work.
Danny adds, “What I really like about my role is the freedom to experiment and I’m not scared to put ideas out there – I’m not going to be harassed about a bad idea. There’s a lot of scope there to learn.
The teamwork is good, too. I was sceptical that you could develop a team working remotely, but it’s quite the contrary. We have regular meetings with each other; no one is protective about their roles. The workflow is very free and everyone is very cooperative.”
