- Michael Swan, Head of Catering & Events, Spark Arena

“Sidekicker makes staffing easier and faster than anything we’ve ever used before, and significantly reduces time spent on recruitment.

The calibre and quality of staff on Sidekicker is unreal–it’s better than any other workforce we’ve ever had, whether that be through other staffing agencies or staff we’ve recruited ourselves.”

- 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.

- 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.

- Jane Grey, Director, Cycle Blend

The quality of the staff on Sidekicker is phenomenal. Sidekicks always arrive early, look good, and are professional, enthusiastic and full of excitement–it feels like they’ve been highly trained to do what you need them to do.

With Sidekicker, I can totally relax when it comes to staffing, which allows me to focus on what I love doing–running and growing the business.
