Have you considered working for yourself ? Portfolio careers could be the answer
Often, after a career changing event such as redundancy or a compromise departure from a previous employer, many individuals turn to a portfolio career.
This is where the individual works with a number of organisations on a part time basis simultaneously.
This can be very rewarding and offer great variety in terms of client size, sector, the point in life cycle of the business eg start up or well established, future aims and objectives, etc.
We can give you assistance with this type of career move and help you to establish yourself as a Portfolio Director.

This type of role can sometimes lead to an individual being offered an equity stake in a company, often in return for a reduced day rate charge or in some instances where the individual has worked on a non-paid or “sweat equity” basis.
