What is a Private Sidekick?

Businesses can manage their rostering, shift scheduling, and even payroll through Sidekicker by inviting staff members on to Sidekicker as 'Private Sidekicks'.

Being a 'Private Sidekick' means you are an employee of Sidekicker but can only view and work shifts for the business who invited you. It is really simple to join once you have accepted the invitation - the sooner you complete your Private Sidekick profile, the sooner you can start accepting shifts.

Step 1: Log in to your Sidekicker account here

Step 2: Complete all mandatory Certificates

The Certificates section includes a list of certificates for you to upload. This includes at least two mandatory certificates: OH&S Induction and Right to Work check.

OH&S Induction


The OH&S quiz should take 5-10 minutes. Screenshot your results to upload it in your Sidekicker profile under the 'Sidekicker OH&S Induction' field.

Right to Work check


To verify your right to work, you’ll need one of the following: Australian Passport or Birth Certificate, Australian Citizenship Certificate or Australian Visa. Create an account with Certsy and follow the steps. Once you're done, take a screenshot and upload this to your Sidekicker profile under the certificate 'Right to Work Check'.
