For professionals, Flexing It™ aims to provide the ability to craft a great portfolio of work on their terms, and reduce the risk of working independently by providing access to a large number of quality assignments that we source and bring to the platform. Our community of independent professionals spans Corporate Freelancers who have taken to working independently after a long stint in an organisation, to Entrepreneurial Freelancers, who take on assignments to generate cash flows while simultaneously getting a venture off the ground, to Young Parents looking to balance family and career, and Creative Freelancers who take on multiple projects as a way to build a strong portfolio, and Professional Moonlighters who are looking to learn and earn through interesting assignments beyond regular working hours.

For organisations, Flexing It™ is a great way to obtain experienced and skilled resources for the duration and intensity they need. Companies accessing skills through the platform are well-represented across large corporates, high-growth start-ups and SMEs, investors, professional services firms and leading not-for-profits. The assignments posted span short intense projects lasting a few weeks, to longer engagements that require a couple of days a week for 6-12 month durations. Also, they represent a diverse mix of projects that need some client-facing time, to others that can be delivered remotely.
