Join leading businesses reinventing how they hire

- Simon Rossi, General Manager, UBER

Having access to quality staff for hourly roles like promotional staff and customer service reps has helped Uber grow rapidly in Australia and New Zealand. Being able to hire staff when and where we need them quickly and affordably has enabled us to keep our core team lean but well supported as we’ve scaled.

- Jane Grey, Director, Cycle Blend

“Using Sidekicker eliminates these challenges. The quality of the staff 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.”

- Head of Growth & Strategy, HeyYou

Sidekicker saves us money on agency fees, and so much time on paperwork and administration.

It’s great being able to hire quality team members for in-store promotions when and where we need them. We can control who works for us and easily rehire the staff we like for entire campaigns. 

- Jade Mayhew, Head of Business Development, REVEL

With Sidekicker, we’re able to request who and what we need at the click of a button. Given we use Sidekicker for all of our campaigns we’ve also built up a stockpile of templates and talent pools which makes the whole process so simple and user friendly–what used to take us hours now literally takes less than 5 minutes.

- Leena Van Ray, Founder, Bike & Blend

The most beneficial thing about Sidekicker is the ability to launch into different cities. We had a lot of customers wanting us in Sydney and Brisbane but we didn’t have the staff or the resources to grow into those cities. Luckily, Sidekicker had a talent pool already in the cities we wanted to expand into, so it allowed me to tap into their talent to grow and be able to run our events in those cities.
