Is it For You?

If you are retired, need part time work, or a freelance technical expert, IT Architect, or have project management skills, then why not join our associate programme?

Responsiv operate the Associate Programme to build a reservoir of skills and trusted people that can be asked for advice, who have pre-agreed NDA and other details, and who we know can deliver what we ask. The programme has been running for seven years, and in that time, we have built strong relationships with many of our associates.

Our customers appreciate a job well done, and we appreciate associates who can teach us new things and share experiences that help us to deliver better. Teams that include associates are often stronger and effective because of the diversity of experience and skills.

To deliver a typical project on time and to budget requires a disciplined approach and access to skills that include project management, technical product expertise, architecture and design, testing, and of course business domain knowledge for process and problem analysis.
