Can I be considered for a traditional role through Kenoobi Reserve Talent Network?
Kenoobi Reserve Talent Network is not designed to be an avenue to full-time employment. We are aiming to build a pool of independent professionals who want to engage with Kenoobi on a project-by-project basis.

Why would someone choose to engage with Kenoobi as a Reserve rather than as a traditional employee?
KRTN is a great option for talented professionals not interested in full-time employment opportunities but still seeking challenging work with a leading professional services organization.
Maybe you have your own business and work for multiple clients. Maybe you prefer to only work certain times of the year. Maybe you are retired but want to keep a foot in the working world. Maybe you need to work from home, on your own time, and can’t be tied to an office for set hours each day.
Whatever your reason, KRTN is for you if you want to make a professional impact in a more flexible environment, without being an employee.
