Join leading businesses reinventing how they hire

- Miles Williams, Director, Installex

Sidekicker has been a game-changer for us and how we hire our 300+ casual workforce.

It saves us 2 days per week of manual admin, has reduced absenteeism by 20%, reduced time to fill shifts from 48 hours to 2 hours and given us access to awesome live reporting which helps us manage cash flow.

- Steve Prosser, Head of Frontline Services, Ticketek

Sidekicker is a partnership made in heaven–it’s really how casual staffing should be done.

Sidekicker is an integral part of our business, and lets us focus on our clients’ needs and getting them the best possible outcomes, knowing we have the best team taking care of our workforce–from recruitment to HR and payroll.

- John Amrhein, Head of Openair Cinemas

Sidekicker has saved us so much time and money and we get back all the time we used to spend every month interviewing, onboarding and scheduling casuals.

The quality of staff are also better and more consistent than when we used to recruit people ourselves because Sidekicker are the experts in sourcing large volumes of event staff.

- Dianne Silvestro, People Director, RASV

The decision to transition from a traditional agency to Sidekicker was a big one, but we could not be happier. Everything in the lead up and during the event runs so well, which makes it easy to focus on our core business and rest assured that staffing is under control.

Sidekicker has really become the benchmark for how staffing should be done.
