Angus Brennan got into voice work when he was just 12 years old, presenting on his local community radio station in Hervey Bay.

After finishing school, Angus went on to study radio broadcasting and picked up a side hustle doing voice-over work on freelancer platform Fiverr.

He now earns between $77 and $125 per gig and does this alongside his main job, where he works as a disability support worker, teaching voice-over and podcasting skills.


“I’m still doing voice-over as a side hustle and Fiverr helps with that because it is so flexible and it can fit around everything,” Angus told Yahoo Finance.

“All voice work is gig-based, so it depends on what opportunities are there. I normally get about three or four jobs a week.”

Angus isn’t the only Aussie cashing in on the popular side hustle. According to Fiverr, voice-over work grew 22 per cent on the platform last year with an earning potential of between $150 and $700 per job.

Angus said he managed to earn an extra $7,000 through the platform last year and an extra $9,000 the year prior.

One of his favourite parts of voice-over work is the flexibility. Angus recently returned from three weeks travelling Europe, where he brought along his soundproof voice-over box and equipment to earn extra cash on the go.
