Curate a Talent Pool of your on-demand talent

Why we help
Werkling exists to disrupt the way we design and resource organisations.
It’s no secret that top talent is getting harder to find. The need to compete for skills is resulting in long-term vacancies and pressure on existing teams.
Leaders are looking to new and emerging talent pools to access talent that’s not available through the traditional employment model.
A static organisational model hinders performance, slows down organisational responsiveness and overworks people during peak periods.
Today, leaders are building more nimble organisations that can be augmented around complex and changing business needs.
Professional gig economy.
Experienced professionals are reflecting on how they want to work and reconsidering the model that best meets their needs.
For some, this means embracing gig-based work and a portfolio career. This talent segment can be “accessed” but not “acquired” .
Kind words from our clients
We have *the* best talent (and humans!) across People and Culture, Change & Project Management, Marcomms and more (check out all of our domains here). The professions within our talent community all work on-demand and have fabulous portfolio careers, meaning they do not work in a traditional job but are engaged by leaders to deliver high impact projects or services.
Our on-demand talent are typically 15-20 years into their dazzling careers and all have valuable inhouse experience under their belts. They are not “consultant consultants” (you know what we mean). They understand the context that you are working in and how to deliver results.
Werkling is different to those ‘search and pray’ or ‘job board’ style freelancing platforms out there. We know you don’t have time to trawl through dozens and dozens of bios and proposals from all over the world.
Your time is precious so we will simply tell you who the best on-demand professional (from within our known and trusted community!) is for your need.
Werkling talent are matched to gigs based on their talent profile, their referral strength, their past gig performance and their community contribution. You’ll be sent their talent profile via the Werkling platform and, after reviewing it, can organise a time to meet with them.
When you create an account you will be provided with a free membership. Leaders pay a transparent matching fee on top of the project delivery costs that are agreed with the matched Werkling talent. For more about membership fees and services, head here.
