How we work
After you share your CV, we’ll be in touch to arrange an interview by telephone or video conference.
After assessment and background checking, we set up your profile on our talent platform.
Once you’re set up, we’ll start to match you with client projects that match your skills and experience.
When you’re assigned to a project, we set up your contract and you start work. You then fill in a timesheet so you can get paid.
My experience with Obelisk has been great. I’ve been placed on an assignment in an organisation that I enjoy with great exposure to a variety of work that is providing me with relevant skills needed to help me progress in my legal career.
