Royal Melbourne Show

The client 

Melbourne Royal Show is an iconic agricultural 11-day event set in September, hosting half a million people every year. It’s organised by Melbourne Royal and has been running since 1848.

According to Diane Silvestro, Head of People & Culture at RASV, their relationship with Sidekicker is paramount to delivering the event. 

The challenges

Managing high volume recruitment

Relying heavily on events staffing agencies, Melbourne Royal Show uses Sidekicker as their sole casual recruitment agency providing 300 Events Assistants to bring the show to life. 

The solution

Innovative staffing platform

The main reason for selecting Sidekicker as their staffing agency is the innovative technology.

Some of the features Melbourne Royal Show has most benefited of are:

  • Real-time reporting
  • Virtual staff onsite check-ins
  • In-platform timesheets

The results

Melbourne Royal Show has enjoyed working with Sidekicker and have been receiving high-quality and skilled casual workers events assistants every year. 

"Sidekicker are the benchmark in how casual staffing should be done. The decision to transition from a traditional staffing provider to Sidekicker’s digital solution was a big one, but we couldn't be happier with the impact it's had."
