Inkwell gives you the flexibility you crave and minimizes the headaches associated with finding part-time work: searching for positions and negotiating your time commitment and rates. We allow you to focus on what matters: your home life, your work life, and balancing it all.
Keep Your Skills Intact
Parents and other flex workers are often concerned about losing their skills if they stay out of the workplace for too long. We make an effort to help those who want to stay engaged. All you need is a few hours a week to devote to your profession to keep your skills fresh and keep you engaged for the long-term.
Build Your Career
You may worry that you have been out of the workforce too long. We could not disagree more. Many of you are already working in some respect: volunteering for your kids’ schools or working pro bono. What matters is that you have the inclination and the experience to focus on your career. We are here to help – to make you proud, happy, and to create a new template for the generation of daughters who will follow in your footsteps.
Join Our Network
As a member of the Inkwell team, you will be part of a network of trailblazing flexible workers who are inspired, empowered, and connected. You will also be invited to participate in our events and lectures.
Our Selection Process
Our selection process is rigorous and tailored to the individual. We recruit candidates with top-notch academic credentials and strong work experience. Every member of our team is hand-picked for excellence.
phase I: Application
Submit application form and resumé to Inkwell. After we review these documents, we will set up an interview. If all goes well, we will check references with your former employers.
phase II: Conversation
In getting to know and understand you, we start each relationship with an in-depth conversation. We take the time to learn about your interests, personality, and availability for project-based or part-time work.
phase III: Opportunities
We will introduce you to opportunities that we think would be a great fit, and answer any questions about each firm and the project or position offered.
phase IV: Offer
Our clients notify us if they would like to meet you. We then represent you through each stage, from preparing you for the interview and managing the recruitment process to negotiating the salary.
phase v: Beyond
Once you have been placed, we will continue to work with you. We will give you periodic feedback, and once a project is completed, we will help you find your next position.
Inkwell is more than a job placement agency and more than a network.
