Executive Search

Inkwell’s candidate database is a curated set of highly skilled professionals with deep industry and management expertise, often seeking an element of flexibility in their career. We source most candidates either directly from our database or via referrals—a method that connects us to more diverse, well-vetted talent pools than those of traditional recruiters. In addition to executive search, we also offer board placements that help diversify your company at the highest level.

Strategic Advisory

Let us help you integrate flexibility in a way that meets your business needs. We bring years of expertise in working with clients to enhance diversity and create flexible roles in their organizations—or reshape existing roles to meet top talent’s flexible needs. We also provide project-based advisory work to ensure the success of these flex roles within your organization, including training sessions, flex assessment, and implementation.
