amaysim's HR director

There’s always a buzz around amaysim HQ whenever we bag another gong for the amaysim pool room.

This time, we’ve come home with the Bronze in the inaugural HR Director Magazine Employer of Choice Award in the 100-499 employee category. This basically means that we’ve been recognised for helping our amaysimites achieve better work-life balance – or as we like to call it at amaysim, life-balance. 

This is the first time amaysim has entered an award for our HR efforts, so we’re pretty chuffed to find out we won. We’re even more stoked because the votes were made by employees, and the winners decided based on those who garnered the most votes. The Employer of Choice Awards aim to gain insights into Australia’s best companies across areas including engagement, career progression and employee wellbeing. More than 200 companies including amaysim took part in the survey this year, and the awards are based on over 2000 employee responses. 

It’s a massive boost for the amaysim crew to hear that what they’re doing is appreciated and recognised, so we’ll be working even harder to make sure that we can continue to live up to these awards. Thanks so much for the recognition – we really appreciate it. 

The May issue of HRD Magazine has hit stores, so feel free to get your hands on a copy to get more info on the Employer of Choice Awards.

Celebrating nine amazing years!

20 Nov 2019

We’re growing up, but we’re definitely not growing old.

Our ninth year has been filled with awesome achievements, and we couldn’t have done it without your amazing support!

nine years strong

It felt just like yesterday when we embarked on an ambitious journey to shake up the dinosaurs of the Australian telco industry, with our BYO mobile phone proposition and SIM-only plans.

Fast forward nine years and with over one million customers catching onto the amaysim wave, it’s crazy to think that the best is still yet to come.

Whether you’ve been with us since day dot (back when the iPhone 4 was the hottest phone in the market), or have recently joined the amaysim family, we can’t thank our loyal customers enough for their support over the years, as we clearly wouldn’t be here without you.

still got our eyes on the prize

Between expanding our product offerings and enhancing the experience for our customers (be sure to check out the refreshed amaysim app), it's been an exciting year at amaysim HQ.

Not to mention we recently upped the data across our mobile plans, ensuring we keep our promise in offering Aussies greater choice when it comes to finding a great-value mobile plan that’s simple to use and won’t break the bank.

revitalised network agreement

As you all know, amaysim runs on the Optus 4G network, and mobile data is the fuel that allows our connected lives to exist. Data usage is only set to increase as we move into the future which is something we want to ensure is encapsulated in the type of mobile plans we offer.

amaysim and Optus have had a mutually beneficial partnership since we launched back in 2010 and in May we signed a revitalised network supply agreement (NSA) with Optus.

The updated agreement enables us to offer even greater products and services to our mobile customers, so keep your eyes peeled as we continue to expand our mobile plan offerings to meet our customers’ evolving needs.

Canstar Blue Awards

we love customer recognition

There’s always been a focus at amaysim HQ of doing right by our customers, knowing good things will come and although awards aren’t everything, from time-to-time it’s nice to be acknowledged!

To cap off a great year, we struck gold at the 2019 Canstar Blue Awards, taking home the gong for the most satisfied customers in the prepaid SIM-only category - shining a light on the amazing value our mobile plans continue to provide hundreds of thousands of Aussies.

What made this win even more special is the fact the Canstar Blue Awards are based on direct feedback given to an independent research firm by customers.

On that note, a massive shout out to our customers who continually give us a vote of confidence through loyalty and support – we appreciate each and every one of you.

let’s keep it going

Nine years in, we can honestly say we've never been more excited for what the future holds and we’re more determined than ever to continue delivering amazing value to our customers across both mobile and energy.

Bring it on!
