Consultancy broker

Ework is a consultancy broker that aims to help companies find the right person for the right project. The company’s core is its database, consisting of more than 100,000 consultants. These consultants are not employed by Ework, instead, the company’s objective is to link them to the optimal project. This saves administration, increases effectiveness and saves time for both partners. Ework generates its revenues by taking a cut of the contract’s total sum. The business is conducted in five different countries, whereas the primary market is Sweden.

The fast growing technological development generates more and more consultants. This also creates a demand among companies and organizations for specialists in niche areas under time specific periods. Furthermore, there is an increased interest for independent consultancy. The option to choose projects and when and where they should take place creates an incentive. Ework acts on this demand and supply by bringing the two parts together. The company is also trying to exploit this need outside the Nordics (in Poland) and this could pay off in the future.

Consultancy is generally a cyclical sector. Hence, the demand for Ework’s services could decrease in worse times. Since the company does not employ the consultants, the profitability should have a somewhat limited downside, but the revenue growth could be affected. There is also a risk that more consultants may seek employment in a recession, thereby having a safety net, which could also have a negative effect on revenues.
