The Senior Executives Association and GovFlex.com, private talent exchange, has recently unveiled their new partnership that will grant access to a digital marketplace for 12,000 of the best federal executives career feedback and access to aiding others in similar positions.
The McLean-Va.-based GovFlex, which bills itself as “the Government Freelance Exchange” and the first public-sector “gig economy” job platform, plans to assist members of the senior executives group to “create an agile and highly effective 21st-century workforce, acquisition system and e-Commerce initiatives,” it said in a Friday joint announcement.
Together, the two groups will offer one-stop networking for high-level agency executives, including the sought-after chief financial officers and chief information officers.
The idea is to provide readily accessed professional advisory services to help current career executives transition to private-sector jobs as well as ease the entry of subject matter experts into federal programs in a variety of agencies.
“We see this as a way for agencies to tap into senior-level talent in ways they haven’t been able to before,” SEA President Bill Valdez told Government Executive. “We know government officials looking for talent can go to GovFlex, and for those folks who’re considering transitioning from the federal government to a career in the private sector, we’re going to develop a number of transition assistance programs to help them navigate the choices as they exit into a new life.”
