Will my personal details be secure?
Yes. Your details will only be shared with a prospective Client once you have been contacted and agreed. Our database is secure.
What kind of skills do you need to succeed as an Expert?
We need the A-Z of skills, hard earned throughout your career to date. We look for more specialist skills than generalist, and we have Business Clients who can use your skillsets, experience and short cuts to success.
Your experience may be in a particular sector, geography, product, service etc and together you can achieve in weeks what it would take businesses years and buckets of money to get to!
Please note that we are not limited to any specific skillsets, but they must be at a high standard.
I am happy in my full time role at the moment, does that still qualify me to be an Expert?
Absolutely YES as E4E is specifically modelled around you being happy to progress within your core career, as well as reaching out from time to time to assist Businesses. This is the magic and fun inherent in E4E.
OK, but would my HR team be happy with me working with E4E as well as my substantive role?
In many cases YES because modern Human Resource Teams see the need to develop and keep their talented executives happy and fulfilled and in any case the time commitments would not be detrimental to your current role.
I’m working in the "Plural" economy with many employment interests.....can I become an Expert with E4E?
YES you can as you are an ideal person in terms of harnessing your variety of skills to match with a Business who may need your help.
As an Expert, how much will I be paid and does it have to be in Equity?
Both the value you receive from the Business client and its form is agreed between you both. It can be in equity, financial payment, or for free. Once you have agreed to collaborate, terms are agreed which will be driven by many factors, not least estimating the time that you are committing.
The core premise of the business model is that Businesses will normally offer Equity in return for the Expertise, but if it suits both parties to reach a different solution then that’s fine.
How long do Experts and Businesses work with each other?
For 18 days, 18 weeks, 18 months or longer. Each assignment is bespoke and designed to be tailored to your joint requirements.
Will I get the chance to pick the Client/Company that I want to work with?
Yes after a matching list is produced by E4E.
What kinds of Businesses are looking for Experts?
Every business from Start Ups to SMEs to Mid Caps and beyond. The key attraction to these businesses is the ability to quickly access the Expertise of a professional person for limited time in order to meet an urgent business goal without the requirement to hire them.
Is it fun?
Enormously! A new market has been created with an new set of relationships that defy and redefine traditional business rules. Both the Expert and Business Client achieve what they want in double quick time and enjoy the journey.
