So, what exactly is Findmyexpert?

An on-demand platform that connects market-leading companies with the world’s finest consultants.

Why should my company use Findmyexpert?

Findmyexpert provides access to a wealth of elite-level consultants. And by engaging them on a project basis, turnaround time is quicker and recruitment fees are significantly reduced.

Why should my company trust Findmyexpert?

Findmyexpert has been crafted from the ground up by a team of award-winning recruitment industry veterans. All of our consultants are interviewed and background-checked. Only the finest are verified as experts, guaranteeing an outstanding standard.

Why should we hire remote consultants? We prefer full-time employees, working out of the same office.

Three main reasons:
  1. Things move fast in business. But the outdated recruitment model (identify - interview - negotiate - notice period - relocate - start) is inefficient. Findmyexpert’s process is far faster, smoother, and more effective than the traditional model.

  2. Recent political developments have also reduced employee accessibility. The overseas career move is becoming a thing of the past. So, in order to secure the finest talent, it is vital to leverage global remote connectivity.

  3. 91% of remote workers feel they are more productive. They also report higher happiness levels. The reality is that true experts can pick and choose the environment that facilitates their best work. Findmyexpert gives your company access to a calibre of talent that may otherwise be unwilling -- or unable -- to relocate.

Why should I take your word about their expertise? How do I know that they are truly outstanding?

Findmyexpert only promotes consultants who have a demonstrable track-record of delivering top results.

Everyone is vetted. Everyone is interviewed. Transparency is fundamental. Our candidates have a virtual portfolio that you can peruse, and you can ensure that both parties are aligned by using our messaging system to discuss the details. There is no obligation to collaborate if you are unconvinced -- you will have the final say.

What if the consultant bills us for erroneous hours? How do we ensure that they hit deadlines and ship on time?

Findmyexpert consultants are required to log into our in-house Time Tracker system when working, to log hours and availability.

However, if you suspect that your expert is misleading you, then you can raise a grievance and the Findmyexpert Customer Happiness team will arbitrate. And you could also consider negotiating a per-project fee rather than than an hourly rate. Remember that honesty and transparency are in the expert’s best interests, too. After all, in the consulting world, reputation is everything.

How do payments work?

Every month, Findmyexpert will invoice your company as per the expert’s Time Tracker tally. Once your company pays the invoice, Findmyexpert will pay the expert (total invoice, minus FME’s fee). A similar model is used for per-project billing. Experts are responsible for self-declaring taxable income.

For example, if the expert commands a fee of £50 per hour, the cost to your company will be £62.50 per hour. Every month, Findmyexpert will invoice your company as per the expert’s Time Tracker tally. Once your company pays the invoice, Findmyexpert will pay the expert (total invoice, minus FME’s fee). Experts are responsible for self-declaring taxable income. A similar model is used for per-project billing. A 25% service fee will be added to the agreed-upon figure. And if a permanent contract is agreed, then Findmyexpert will charge a flat fee of 20% of one year’s annual salary (eg. £20,000 for a £100,000 salary).
