Bench Makes LinkedIn’s List of Top Australian Startups to Work For in 2018

We are proud to place #10 on LinkedIn’s inaugural list of the top 25 Australian startup employers alongside other pioneering companies such as Canva, Expert360,, Airtasker, Prospa and Employment Hero.

This is the first time LinkedIn has assembled such a list for Australia and it’s an honour to be included. The qualification criteria was based on the actual activity of LinkedIn’s Australian user base and it’s an honour to be recognised for our talent brand and industry-leading recruitment practices.
