Connecting Innovative Businesses with Freelance Professionals

Our Mission

To enable talent agility through technology.

Our Story

During our time at Bain & Company, we saw the power of contingent workers and consultants as a means to get support and expertise to supercharge organisations and create real change.

At that time, corporations lacked the ability to easily augment staff, build handpicked consultant teams, hire top individual short-term talent and engage with subject matter experts and boutique firms. They were also unable to have these elite business professionals available for deployment within days, not weeks.

Simultaneously, we noticed that more freelancers and firms in management, finance, marketing, HR, sales, operations and technology wanted to have more flexibility and choice in the way they work and with whom they work.

Our Solution

We knew that technology could efficiently connect companies with previously inaccessible on demand talent. We created Expert360 to be this technology solution.

Expert360 allows businesses to engage and manage top talent for short-mid term project-work. We bring businesses what they really want – the ability to manage existing high quality talent through our platform or engage flexibly with our vetted pool of 19,000+ freelancers and firms at a price that delivers great value.

Through the Expert360 platform, businesses are able to:

  • Manage their existing contingent and consulting workforce through our platform
  • Access over 19,000 vetted independent consultants, freelancers and firms with experience working exclusively in top global businesses.
  • Augment staff, build consultant teams, hire top individual talent and engage with subject matter experts and boutique firms at the click of a button.
  • Track contingent cost and activity with access to our custom reports and dashboards to help you oversee costs and consultant, freelancer and/or firm usage.

Through the Expert360 platform, consultants, freelancers and firms are able to:

  • Do what they love everyday by selecting projects that leverage their skills and interest them the most.
  • Effortlessly manage their own workflow without having to worry about contracts and invoices. Everything is managed through the online platform.
  • Grow their professional network by connecting with like minded consultants and businesses seeking individuals with their unique background and experience.
