We are hiring!

Applications close July 9th 2021. 

Budgy Smuggler is on the path to complete (well, maybe partial) global domination and we are seeking to grow our team to meet this impending inevitability.


We are searching for a new role: 

Budgy Smuggler Bondi Store Manager.


Now may not be the best time to advertise a position in Bondi (lol), but this current lockdown won’t last forever and we have a Budgy Smuggler Retail Store to reopen mid-July, once we finish renovating.

The ideal person will have picked up skills and experience working with a larger chain store but may be a bit sick and tired of their corporate bullsh*t, and looking for somewhere they can make an impact & have their voice heard.

You’ll be responsible for:

  • People: Hiring, developing, managing, motivating & training a team to deliver / achieve set goals.
  • Vibes: When you walk into the store it feels like more than just a store… there’s a vibe that you can’t quite quantify… but it doesn’t feel like a large, faceless chain of stores.
  • Love: Building love and relationships with the local community & our fellow smugglers
  • Creation: This can range from creating content for our socials to creating events for the community to be a part of.

Budgy Smuggler is a place where we care about our team but we also expect that our team will care about Budgy. This will be a bit more than just a job & a paycheck - you’ll be part of a team trying to build a business around quality - not just the product, but also how we interact & support our community and the environment.

We’re out to make a difference in the world in our own unique way - people just looking for a paycheck need not apply. People with a history and love of smuggling preferred.

Must be available to work 1 x weekend day, although flexibility on which day.

How to apply?

Submit 1-page cover letter and CV to


A cover letter that includes the following: Who you are, why you want to work at Budgy Smuggler, your love of smuggling and a heads up on what your availability is like over the next 6 months. A picture of you smuggling at some point in time would not hurt but is not a requirement.

Applications close Wednesday July 9th so best to get in pretty quick smart.
