At Broadsheet, we’re used to compiling lengthy lists of places to eat and drink, and of new destinations to add to our bucket lists. We figure our readers can relate.

Much like finding a new job, researching where to spend your spare time and how to hit your holiday goals can be arduous. So we’re making it easier.

We’ve partnered with Swag by Employment Hero to give a lucky winner the chance to dine at any spot they’ve been dying to try. We’ll cover the bill (up to $500). On top of that, the winner can book their next getaway with a $1500 travel voucher.

Never miss a moment. Make sure you're subscribed to our newsletter today.


With your $500 Broadsheet gift card, you can cash in on coffee, drinks or food at almost any bar, restaurant and cafe around the country.

In Melbourne, we’ve been eyeing off Doju, a sleek diner celebrating Korean condiments and flavours via a Westernised approach. It’s one of the city’s best new restaurants (this guide’s a good place to start figuring out where to spend your prize).

If you’re in Sydney and haven’t been to The Caterpillar Club, a swanky late-night cocktail lounge and live music spot by the Swillhouse group, now’s your chance. Sitting in one of those cosy, dimly-lit red leather booths with a hearty cheeseburger in hand is a pretty appealing option for the incoming autumn nights.

And don’t forget some of the best restaurants in Adelaide, Brisbane’s top bars or the hottest newcomers in Perth. With this prize, the world is your oyster – you can even spend the $500 on just oysters if you’re so inclined.

The $1500 travel voucher could even get you further than your own city. Head north-east to maximise on warm weather and stay in some of Australia’s most beautiful accommodations, like one of Blackbird Byron’s secluded, architecturally stunning pavilions near Mullumbimby, NSW. You can save your vouchers to lock in accommodation and dining plans in Hobart during this year’s Dark Mofo, or plan a trip around Rising in Melbourne or Vivid in Sydney.

Entering is as easy as applying for a job on a streamlined site like Swag. Just create an account, complete your profile and apply for the simulated job ad titled Swag x Broadsheet: Your New Job + a Luxury Staycation to Celebrate by uploading your CV. The best, most engaging CV wins.
