Sidekicker, the online temporary staffing platform won the 2016 best new exhibitor at AIME as judged by the AIME management team.
Since launching in 2012, Sidekicker has grown its operations across Australia and New Zealand, with the majority of the team at its Melbourne HQ. Sidekicker’s new office on Flinders Lane provides room for the existing team and the ability to pursue its expansion plans of doubling the team by the end of 2016.
Sidekicker has achieved rapid growth in Australia and New Zealand in the past 12 months. The company has raised $2 million in funding since its launch three years ago, and now works with customers such as Uber, Sofitel, Airbnb, Reed Exhibitions, Turning Point Solutions, Blakes Feast, Eventbrite and Sofi Spritz.
More than 2,000 ‘Sidekicks’ are currently on the platform, with an average of 40 new ‘Sidekicks’ added every week. 2015 saw an eight fold increase in the volume of jobs completed through the platform, with more than 5,000 jobs completed over 134,000 hours of work. $15 million+ worth of work is projected to go through Sidekicker in 2016.
