OUR VETTING PROCESS
Our rigorous screening process ensures we get the best consultants. As experienced consultants ourselves, we look for proven experts with passion and drive (and excellent communication skills). We only accept people into the network who we’d want to work with and learn from ourselves.
Hundreds of consultants apply to FlexTeam each month. Less than 5% are accepted into our network.
Recruit Top Performers
We monitor Facebook groups, forums, and LinkedIn, and ask for referrals to find the very best freelance consultants. Top consultants who learn about FlexTeam can also apply for admission.
In-Depth Skill Review
Every consultant fills out an in-depth application form about their background, expertise, specialties, and skills (including assessments). We then review each consultant’s professional experience, client feedback, and work samples to assess their level of expertise and knowledge of best practices.
Chat and Video Interview
Our final layer of screening is an instant message style chat (think Slack) that assesses communication skills, critical thinking, and professionalism. If all above criteria are met, they are invited to participate in a final video conference call. Every FlexTeam consultant must complete all vetting processes before joining our community.
After acceptance to FlexTeam, each consultant is assigned to work on at least one trial project so they can show us their skills and expertise on a real-life projects. These trial projects provide real-world scenarios for consultant to demonstrate their competence, thoroughness, professionalism, and integrity. Additional trial projects must be completed for each project type they are interested in working on.
FlexTeam consultants are expected to maintain a perfect track record while working with our clients. We check-in with clients via our platform on app.flexteam.com to ensure quality service and do not tolerate sub-par work or poor communication for any reason.
