If you’ve got any other trade licences, it’s best to call out the licence number when you make an offer on a task. We’ll hopefully be rolling out licence badges for other trades Australia-wide soon.

Important note for Taskers:

It is an offence to undertake electrical wiring work without a licence and can pose serious safety risks to both you and the Job Poster. Always ensure that you have the correct licensing to safely perform the work and to ensure the highest standard of work.

Please note that this verification depends on accurate information provided by the applicant.

What is electrical wiring work?

The definition of electrical wiring work can be found in the Gas & Electricity (Consumer Safety) Act 2017 and relates to the physical work of installing, repairing, altering, removing or adding to an electrical installation.

In NSW only an authorised electrician can perform electrical wiring work. A Tasker who is an authorised electrician may have the Electrical Badge.

Please note that the Badge is granted based on a point in time check which means results only reflect relevant records on the date that the check was completed . If you engage an Electrical Badge holder for tasks involving electrical work, you should verify their current credentials prior to the task being carried out. You can also check to see if the tasker is an authorised electrician through the relevant register in your State. 

Once you’ve accepted an offer you can request the following details from an Electrical Badge holder:
