What Makes Articulate Unique: Benefits to Associates
We're a sophisticated client.
Because we regularly subcontract associates' services, we are constantly getting more sophisticated at dealing smoothly with specialists like you. We are familiar with the technical considerations that you deal with and we often know what questions you need answered. We are unique and we will challenge you, but you won't have to deal with the problems and risks that arise with unsophisticated clients.
We're a simple client.
When we call on you, we know what we want, and we know how to communicate our needs in terms that you can relate to. We generally have a good idea how much time and money you'll need, and we know when to leave the details up to you.
We let you focus on your most profitable activities.
You know how much hard work and practice it takes to be good at what you do. We know that it takes whole, distinct skill sets to handle marketing, pricing, project management, client relationship management, and administration. As an associate to Articulate, you don't have to worry about most of that. When you get involved in an Articulate project, you get to focus on the work you enjoy.
We only want your best.
We want to know what types of work you excel at so that we can focus on involving you in projects that require excellence in those areas. Likewise, if you lack confidence in certain types of work, we will not ask you to go there. By knowing your strengths and weaknesses, we can become a channel for you to get more of the work you do best.
As an associate, you can work in any environment you like at any time you like. Take your laptop to your favourite cafe or pub, or to the beach, or on a camping trip. Work in the middle of the night or early in the morning. Wear comfortable clothes. As long as you deliver good work reliably at fair cost, you can exercise this flexiblity as much or as little as you like.
We put it in writing.
Like many of your clients, we like to have the terms of our business relationships in writing. This way, we can work together secure in the knowledge that everybody's business interests are acknowledged and protected. For first-time deals, we use a proprietary Subcontractor Agreement. For an on-going subcontract relationship, we use a proprietary Associate Agreement. Each agreement identifies our respective rights and obligations in plain language and creates a fair and ethical basis for us to maintain a smooth business relationship.
If this seems attractive to you, and you're very good at what you do (e.g. as a writer/editor, graphic designer, or website developer) then please call or e-mail Articulate Consultants to apply.
