Australian-owned job board, Vpply, is connecting companies and job seekers through quick and engaging video, allowing candidates to showcase their personality without the need of traditional resumes.
Founded in Sydney, Vpply was launched in July 2020 to help job seekers find work and to assist with COVID-19 recovery. Targeting Generation X, the platform’s niche of applying with a video has offered many young jobseekers a platform to start their job search while also allowing them to engage in human connection and to portray their authentic personality.
According to CEO Tom Lipczynski, almost four in 10 (38%) of all Vpply’s users fall into the 25-to-34-years bracket, while the platform has attracted over 3,000 job seekers in January alone.
“In total, Vpply has listed over 6,000 jobs in Australia,” he said.
“The traction is strong, and we are growing both sides of the business month on month.”
The jobs listed include roles in business support, hospitality, retail, healthcare, education, manufacturing, IT and entertainment, with the variety set to increase significantly in the coming months. In Canberra, Mr Lipczynski said there are over 100 jobs listed.

Vpply is a web application that allows candidates to apply for jobs with a video profile. The concept of the technology came from addressing the lack of human connection at the first stage of the hiring process – job search.
Their aim is to disrupt the traditional text job board space and provide jobseekers tools to attract top employers with authentic and inspiring stories. The recruitment industry has awakened to the potential for video to grow a personal and company brand, turbocharge social recruiting, build diversity, showcase Employer Brand content & so much more and Vpply aims to be there every step of the way.
As of February 2021, Vpply has listed 6000 jobs and completed 10,000 job seeker sessions on the site.
