How does it work?

We search for an expert for you:

  • We’ll complete a scope of capability requirements with you to send out to our networks.
  • Your identity and project remains confidential.
  • We’ll provide you with a summary of willing and validated experts matching your requirements. This usually takes 15-20 business days.
  • You make your selection and follow up with your expert of choice using the contact details provided.

There is no charge for this service but expert consultancy fees vary and are negotiated directly between you and the experts.
