Your Sidekick profile is your ‘online resume’ on Sidekicker–it showcases your personality, experience, and skills to the businesses looking to hire staff on Sidekicker.
Sidekick profiles are what businesses use to select who they hire (often out of several applicants), so it’s your opportunity to make yourself look like a superstar.
Think of it like your shop front–the better you make your profile, the more likely you are to be selected (especially for your first shift before you start to accumulate star ratings and job history).
How to edit your Profile
To complete your profile, log in to your Sidekicker account. On the top right hand side, select ‘View Profile’, and then ‘Edit Profile’.

Step 2 - Adding Experience

Include at least 3 different experiences, showcasing as many of your skills as possible that are relevant to the type of roles you’re going to be doing on Sidekicker.
- Explain what tasks you did / skills demonstrated in your previous roles, e.g. making and serving coffee and cocktails, or ‘preparation of salad ingredients and cold meats’, or ‘using a drill to assemble furniture’.
- Tick the boxes of any roles that relate to the specific job experience. When a client looks at your profile for a specific job, they are only shown the relevant experiences for that role.
