Success Story – Kiernan Group Holdings

KGH-logoIndustry:  Government contractor – law enforcement and national security

Part-Time Placements: Contracts manager, proposal writer, action officer, training coordinator and administrator

Why Part-Time?

  • Ramp up or scale down based on market demand
  • Bring in a more senior or experienced resource without making a large investment

Kiernan adopted a part-time and flexible model to resolve their resource needs without having to make a long-term investment. They hired a former Senior Contracts Manager to work up to 20 hours per week. Her hours fluctuate based on demand and business needs. While the candidate is earning less than her previous full-time salary, she has the flexibility and schedule to allow for a work/life balance that is of high priority to her. In turn, the candidate’s over 20 years of government contracting experience has allowed her to become an integral part of the Kiernan team. The company has realized such value from the initial placement that they have gone on to hire additional part-time resources in the areas of proposal writing, training, project control, and administration.
