The Senior Executives Association has announced a new partnership with a private talent exchange that aims to “create an agile and highly effective 21st-century workforce."
SEA and the Government Freelance Exchange (GOVFLEX) will offer thousands of top federal executives—such as chief financial officers and chief information officers— a digital marketplace that will give career advice, assistance with transitioning from government service, subject-matter expertise across agencies, and other new opportunities.
“This innovative approach connects senior career leaders with the knowledge, training and matching services they need when providing professional advisory services and enabling their career transition” Bill Valdez, president of SEA, said in a news release.
“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,” Valdez added.
The marketplace, GOVFLEX.com, is the first gig economy platform dedicated solely to the U.S. public sector.
