ProTem – Home

ProTem introduces professional experts to organisations for short-term contracts.

A network that capitalises on experience and skills.


As an organisation you can hire some of the best minds in the country.

As one of the best minds, you can find organisations that are looking for experts like you.

There are no fees for joining as an expert or as an organisation.


Temporary positions are common and organisations contract with independent experts for short-term engagement.

ProTem only deals with senior experts and prevents a brain drain from businesses that are knowledge based.

It allows organisations to hire the most experienced minds for short-term assignments.

ProTem introduces experienced professionals. This means some members may have ended full-time employment, being ‘portfolio workers’ or part of the ‘plural economy’.

As an organisation you can set out your terms, and as an advisor you can do the same and agree a fee that you are comfortable with. You can be sure that we will only connect people and organisations that are like-minded.

We find opportunities to connect organisations with a requirement from experts with valuable time on their hands. It’s all automated, so the only charge is an arrangement 12% fee paid by the employee when the contract is completed.

The process is simple and fast. And don’t forget, no fees are payable until you have been paid for a contract.

There is no recruitment fee, either to find an expert or for the contract. The expert will be including our charge in their invoice(s) to your organisation.
