We are the go-to staffing partner for Australia’s leading companies

- Rob Hurn, Warehouse Manager - VinoMofo

We used to have to email back and forth with multiple agencies to get the staff we needed.

Not only has Sidekicker been able to meet all of our requirements for peak periods, but they’ve made it all an absolute breeze.

I was also shocked by how good the quality of staff were – they were so highly motivated that they actually broke records on our production line.

- Lauren Calverley, HR Manager - Mansfield’s Propagation Nursery

Sidekicker is so invested in the quality of their people and the platform is so easy to use. The attitude of staff is always so positive and their ability to pick up tasks quickly and respond to instruction helps us maintain high productivity.

We also control who works for us and can easily rehire the same staff which means we don’t have to always retrain new workers.

- Adam Smith, Warehouse Manager - Linen House

Sidekicker is by far the best way to hire extra staff in the warehouse to support our busy periods. Their staff are consistently high quality and always arrive ready and motivated to work.

Utilising Sidekicker means we don’t have to have an internal fixed head count to manage season roles, and allows us to stay flexible but ensure we’re always sufficiently supported in the warehouse to maintain output.

- Kate Paterson, General Manager, The Relocation Company

Using Sidekicker is so incredibly fast and easy to use. They enable us to hire up to 15 extra labourers for big projects in minutes. The quality of staff is also superior and we’ve been able to easily hire the best staff over and over which has reduced churn and improved productivity

- Meggan Ellis, Head of People & Culture - Youfoodz

Sidekicker essentially empowers us to have an external workforce available to hire when we need extra staff in our DC during peaks in demand. We also can avoid having to waste time training new temps because their retention is so high and it’s so easy to rehire the same workers again and again. 

Plus Sidekicker saves us hours of manual admin every week.
