Employing a part-time professional has many benefits:-

  • Cost effective as you only pay for the time worked.  You can employ us one or two days per week or more.
  • High and strong skill sets mean you get access to a lot of experience.
  • Credibility with external parties such as lenders, auditors and brokers.
  • Contact network which can introduce valuable new partners.
  • Likely to be open to a long term committment, part time doesn’t mean temporary.
  • Opportunity to bring in new ideas and experience from similar sectors.

It really makes sense to use this approach.  Also as circumstances change and your business needs alter you can upscale or down scale the time committment, this is an important consideration if you are in a rapid growth phase, two days per week may make sense now, but in 12 months time, three or four days per week may be more appropriate. If you team is behind and or needs to be restructured you may need more time now, then less in the future, all of these options make commercial sense and work for us.
