About Beacon Lighting

Our story began in Melbourne in 1967 with a single store and the drive to brighten up people’s lives. Since then, we’ve grown to become Australia’s leading specialist retailer of lights, ceiling fans and light globes, with over 115 stores nationwide and a team of over 1,000 people in Australia and beyond. Our customers are at the heart of everything we do. And it’s their wellbeing that drives us to develop stylish, innovative and energy-efficient products that help them live brighter, live lighter, live cooler, live warmer, live well, live smarter and to simply, live life. 

With emerging businesses in Australia and internationally along with a strong focus on our trade customers, this is an exciting time to join our business and grow with us. At Beacon, every day is an opportunity to make a positive impact. You can look forward to roles that align with your passion, work that inspires and opportunities to transform people’s homes and lives. You’ll have the freedom to create, you’ll feel empowered to make changes and you’ll find opportunities to work and learn alongside talented and skilled people. We’re positive about the future and the world we live in, and we look forward to connecting to an even brighter future with you.

This is a true HR generalist role, working within a supportive, fun, dynamic team and you will be encouraged to be your best self and further develop your HR generalist skills.
