What are badges? How can I get them?

Badges are a type of verification given to members when they help us confirm who they are. There’s a whole range of different badges available ranging from ID Badges, Licence Badges and Partner Badges.




ID Badges cover mobile number, payment details, Facebook, LinkedIn & Twitter accounts. You can also get specific badges such as a Police Check Badge, Working with Children and Digital iD Badge.

Licence Badges show off your qualifications and let people know you are a qualified tradesperson. We’re always working on adding more trades badges, but right now you can apply for the Electrical Badge, Plumbing Badge, Gas Fitting Badge or Trades Insurance Badge (if you’ve got what it takes!).

Partnership Badges are special campaigns with other companies. Apply for these badges and fulfil their criteria so you can offer on and compete for tasks with that requirement. Currently we have the IKEA Badge for furniture assembly.

Please note: some badges are not available in all locations. Check out specific badge info here.

These badges are great for all Airtasker members. Not only does it help members trust that you are who you say, they also help your offer or task stand out. The more members with badges we have, the more trusted and confident everyone feels!

Add badges to your profile today through Badges in your account settings. Once you pick what Badge you want to add, it will take you through the next steps.
