Join us – Writer - Exit Advisory Group

Join Our Team

We're looking for a Business Writer to Join our Team

  • Remote role/work from home
  • Passion for writing about business owners and entrepreneurs
  • Full-time (would consider permanent part-time for a minimum of 3 days)

Are you an experienced content writer, copywriter or corporate communications specialist looking for more variety and interested in working for a company that’s on an exciting growth path?

We’re looking for someone who shares our passion for helping business owners!

About us

Exit Advisory Group is a boutique advisory firm helping business owners grow and exit their companies.
We’ve found that people often go into business because they want more time and freedom, but few achieve the financial and lifestyle rewards they want. And unfortunately, when they decide to exit, they're disappointed because their business is not worth what they thought.

We work with business owners to develop targeted growth and exit plans. We help them focus on the core drivers that have the biggest impact on company worth. This means as they grow their business, they are also building a valuable asset. Their business becomes more profitable, efficient, and enjoyable to own — and it’s less dependent on them. When they choose to exit, they have options:

  • They can sell the business for a premium because it's been built to sell
  • They can transition the company to the next generation with a good succession plan in place
  • They can put in a CEO and exit the day-to-day operations, while their business continues to grow.

The ultimate freedom is to own a business that’s valuable, scalable and saleable!

Our services include business advisory, business valuation, strategic planning, business sales and acquisitions.

Why work with us?

Variety of work
We work with such a variety of businesses – across different sectors, sizes, business models and even overseas. No business is the same! The type of work you do on a daily basis is also varied, and we collaborate with fabulous strategic partners to bring initiatives to life.

You’ll never get bored!

You might be stoked that lockdown is ending but perhaps you’re not so thrilled about trekking into the city every day? The mad rush in the morning — making lunches, putting on your work clothes, running to the bus stop — only to stand up all the way to the city….exhausted by the time you start the day!
Instead, you could be working from home, using that commute time to do things you want to do — leisurely walking the dog, doing a work-out, prepping that delicious dinner that can slow cook all day, staying on top of the washing!
Have the flexibility of feeling like your own boss.
Yes, we have deliverables, deadlines, and meetings too. But we’ve also mastered the art of working remotely (we started doing that way before the pandemic) and we hire people that don’t need babysitting. We’re all smart, motivated, pro-active adults who know what needs to be done.

If you are worried about feeling isolated working from home, don’t stress.
We love people and are energised by collaborating with the team. All our team are remote, and we catch up on Zooms, Microsoft Teams and make old fashioned phone calls. But those of us in Sydney can still get together (permitting regulations). We have coffee catch up meetings, quarterly business reviews, and meet up when we visit clients. Staying connected is super important to us.
Our team is small, supportive, and diverse. We share common values but embrace our differences. We see diversity as a key strength.

our team and our values.

No more chasing work
If you’ve ever been a freelance writer, you’ll know the stress of always looking for your ‘next gig’ – while it’s great to work with different clients, it’s also unsettling always chasing the work.
Wouldn’t you love to just focus on your ‘craft’ in an environment where you are highly valued? Not to mention having a huge variety of work.
That’s what you’ll get working with us.

We believe entrepreneurs are the ones that truly change the world. They build businesses to solve problems and they are the engine of our economy, creating jobs and driving growth.
We love telling their stories!
When you get to share people’s stories of sacrifice and success – it’s powerful, and it can make such an impact on others.
Every entrepreneur has a story - help us tell them!

Paying it Forward
Being an entrepreneur is challenging in any environment, but even more so in a third-world country where many hard-working, talented business owners also face food scarcity, security and funding challenges. Part of every invoice paid to us goes toward micro loans, enabling entrepreneurs in less fortunate countries also fulfil their dreams. Our clients know that when they work with us, they are also helping to build a fellow entrepreneur’s future too.
You won’t hear us proclaiming this on social media, or even see signs of it on our website. We share this quietly with our clients and simply find it rewarding knowing that we are setting others up for success. To date, we’ve made over 30 loans across 25 countries, and we have big plans to grow this.
We’ve also partnered directly with the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife to plant trees on behalf of our clients. It is our shared belief that we are all responsible to ‘exit’ this world by leaving it in a better place than how we entered it.

What's in it for you?

For the right person, we will provide you with a competitive salary package comprising a base salary and the potential for annual bonuses. We will welcome you into our small, collaborative, and supportive team, and give you the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives, helping business owners achieve success and freedom in their business. We will support you in your journey by giving you access to development opportunities across a broad range of options. We recognise that everyone is different, and we celebrate diversity. Our aim is to provide a workplace where everyone can flourish.

This is a full-time role, however we are also willing to discuss a minimum 3 day part-time role with a view to increasing to 4 days or full-time. All team members work remotely, and days/hours are reasonably flexible.

We’re looking for someone who shares the same values and work ethic and loves what they do. Someone who can deeply understand our business and join us on this next level of growth...and have some fun along the way.
