About Us

 Rural people delivering administration services with impact across Australia

Launched in 2020 to create work opportunities for rural Australians, Eyre Business has quickly built a reputation for professional administration services and corporate experience, aligned with strong social benefit.

From our Kimba base in regional South Australia, Eyre Business thrives as an accredited social enterprise, presenting rural people a chance to use their skills in careers not otherwise accessible.

Our committed, friendly team provides tailored, cost-effective virtual office support while helping rural economies to become more resilient among ongoing challenges of drought, floods, fires and COVID-19.

Our Vision

Eyre Business will be the country’s leading Professional Business Support Services provider powered by the creation of jobs, career paths and connection for capable rural Aussies.

    Why are we needed?

    We impact individuals.

    Rural Australians often have limited job opportunities in their local areas; meaning they either have to sacrifice extra income and independence, or they have move away from where they and their families call home.

    By creating an alternative employment pathway we are providing opportunities that can change individuals and their families lives. While also filling the need for administration workers for businesses across Australia.

    We support communities.

    A large percentage of jobs in rural Australia are heavily dependent on Australia’s boom to bust cycle of agriculture, even jobs that are not directly agricultural are affected by less money flowing through the community. We promote economic resilience by providing another stream of income, that is not agricultural dependent, allowing communities to retain members that might otherwise have to move away.
