If you feel like you're not seeing as many shifts as you'd like to, there are some ways to increase the number of shifts you're seeing on your dashboard.

It's important to keep in mind though that the number of shifts will vary greatly throughout the year -- it can be really quiet at the start of the year and then super busy in other months. You can read more about this here.

Adding categories to your profile

Every Sidekick on the platform has been approved for different subcategories based on their experience and skills. These were determined during your onboarding session.

If you've gained more experience since your onboarding, we'd love to hear about it! 

Adding hospitality 

To work in hospitality on Sidekicker, you will need a hospitality uniform including white long sleeve shirt, black trousers and black leather shoes, a valid RSA (only in Australia) and pass a skills test which involves a 3 plate carry, 5 plate clear, drinks tray carry, napkining of guests and wine service. If you're confident that you can pass these skills tests and you already have the correct uniform, you can book an interview with us using either the Australian onboarding link or the New Zealand onboarding link. Remember to wear your hospitality uniform!

Adding manual labour

To work in jobs like event setup and packdown, warehousing or manual labour, you'll need to pass a skills test to safely lift 20 kgs and have a high visibility vest and steel capped boots. If you're confident that you meet these requirements, you can book an interview with us using either the Australian onboarding link or the New Zealand onboarding link. Remember to bring along your steel cap boots and hi vis vest!

Adding events, business admin, promotions or warehousing 

To screen your eligibility for any of these additional areas of interest, you'll need to fill out this form

A member of our team will reach out to you within three business days with the outcome of your request.


By completing more certificates,  you can make yourself stand out from other Sidekicks. You can also unlock more categories on the platform! Feel free to reach out to our support team via the blue Sidekicker chat bubble if you are interested in completing more inductions and certificates to add to your profile. 

Be amazing on every job!

The best way score more shifts on the platform is to impress every single client you work with. Many clients will be so impressed with a Sidekick's skills, ability and attitude, that they will post jobs just to them! 

Ensure you arrive early for your shifts, in a neat, clean and ironed uniform, and that you familiarise yourself with the job description and requirements before arriving. Smile, have a positive 'can do' attitude and clients will be more likely to invite you back to work with them again.
