Why ProTem?

Why ProTem?

ProTem has been set up to prevent the brain drain primarily from the property and construction industry by keeping senior talent in the sector. Essentially, `upcycling` experienced people who have the skills to help the transition and benefit the next generation workforce.

Our purpose is to maximise the experience and intellectual asset within sectors, enabling highly skilled people to continue offering their services on a part-time basis for temporary assignments, rather than full-time employment.

We are passionate about our industries and have an enviable network of brainpower that can be unleashed to help hiring organisations to achieve solutions quicker using senior experts who are at the top of their game technically or managerially.

We are not a recruitment agency, merely a network that introduces individual experts to organisations that need short-term issues solved.

ProTem is an introductory online platform set up primarily to help hiring organisations to be more efficient when seeking short-term specialist assignments, and for individual self-employed experts to continue providing their valued experience.

Details of assignments, contractual terms and invoicing are the responsibility of the experts and organisations who are directly connected through the ProTem platform. These assignments are confidential to the experts and hiring organisations.

In order to keep the ProTem platform maintained, experts pay a small percentage ( 12% ) of their chargeable fees only once the assignment has been completed and/or on submitting their invoice to the hiring organisation. ProTem do not take any payment from the hiring organisation.

It is free for experts to registered on the ProTem platform, but there is a process to ensure high quality, high value talent is proven first. Experts agree their day-rate directly with the hiring organisation.

All experts have mini-cv bio`s on the ProTem platform that can be accesses through key-word searches when logged-in.

We set the bar high.

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

You call the shots.

As a hiring organisation you can set out your terms, and as an expert 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.

Profit from spare time.

We find opportunities for experts, with valuable time on their hands, to connect with organisations who want to place a short term contract. An arrangement fee of 12% is paid to ProTem by the expert only once work has been completed.

Free to sign up.

The process is simple and fast and don`t forget, no fees are paid to Protem by the hiring organisation.
