Miss Working On a Team?

Many consultants who work through our Professional Staffing Practice look for opportunities to work remotely and love the idea of doing so on a team. It gives them a different way to provide service to our clients and keeps their game on point as they will be assigned to a team of peers. There is a built in expectation that they “know their stuff” and can contribute to the end game while holding their professional ego in check. It’s a reminder of learning how to play nice in the sandbox while still getting to build the sand castle!

Our marketing and customer experience engagements generally last 6 months. You will likely not be assigned for this entire period unless what you do is required (e.g., project manager). You’ll work closely with the Project Lead to define the project flow upfront and the specific tasks that you’ll complete, along with an estimate of the hours that you’ll need to complete them.

Why Ashton212?

We like to think that there are many reasons why consultants choose to work with Ashton212. One might be that we’re industry agnostic and people-centric. We love working with the smartest and most talented consultants who are part of the demographically diverse, and growing, professional workforce 3.0.

  • We’ve earned a reputation as a firm who recognizes that we are only as good as the company we keep. Not only do we work with consulting “lifers” but we assist those who are new to consulting.  According to the U.S. Census bureau, in 2015, there were more than 9.2 million self-employed and temporary workers employed in management, professional, and related occupations—including Baby Boomers, GenXers, and Millennials. Soon GenZers, who at the top end are now 18 years of age, will begin entering the professional labor pool. 
  • We communicate with you even when you're not on assignment with us. We feature Ashton Associates in our Where Talent Matters blog series; invite Ashton Associates to guest blog; post articles of interest on our website and post them on Facebook daily; distribute emails sharing hot jobs, new things happening at Ashton212 and information that you'll find useful in managing your life as a consultant. 
  • It seems pretty simple to us; if you want people to stick around, treat them well. We know that the best talent community is representative of all. We thrive on relationships, define diversity in the broadest way possible, and embrace inclusivity. We actively seek to ensure that we attract, retain and place all populations, and include these voices in how we do our work and solve talent problems that our clients face.
  • We work hard to make a positive impact.

 

Getting Onboarded

Our screening process includes actual conversations with people who are genuinely interested in you and the kind of work you prefer. The more we know about you the better we can represent you to clients. We want to understand what you love to do and how well you do it.  We also like to get the paperwork out of the way up front. That way when we have the perfect opportunity for you, it’s simple to get you on your way. 

To help maximize your experience as a team member we require you to complete a Gallup’s StrengthsFinder assessment. This assessment helps you, and us, better understand how you work and helps us ensure the best alignment with a Project Lead.
