Due to their diverse offerings, Urban Foodies needs access to a great team that have a diverse range of skills including bartending, chefs, event assistants and promo staff.
During the events peak season Urban Foodies often face the following challenges:
- As the frequency of events increases, the number of staff available and required means Urban Foodies are often left short staffed
- The costs of hiring new staff are not feasible (recruitment, admin, onboarding) for staff they only need for a short period of time
- Finding staff through agencies, uni boards or referrals from family and friends the quality of talent was below their standards and/or outside of their control
“Prior to finding Sidekicker, the way we would boost our seasonal staffing pool would be using staffing agencies, university students, and referrals from family and friends.” – Victoria Black, Events Manager.
