Dovetail connects experienced and talented individuals with SMEs across all sectors that need to bring in external skills to fulfil short or longer term projects.


Our network has the skills, track record, time and drive to add value to some of the most forward thinking companies.


In return, members of the Dovetail network get involved with interesting and engaging project work in a truly flexible way that can fit around their other commitments. 


With such a shift in traditional working patterns, flexible work is transforming business models and some of the brightest and best talent are experienced women and men who no longer want to work for employers on a full position basis – these people are forming the Dovetail network. 

Emma Knott – Founder of Dovetail

Emma founded Dovetail in 2018 and truly believes in the value of SME's hiring skills as and when needed, and at a time when more people are choosing to work as independent consultants or freelancers and build a portfolio based career.

Emma spent ten years working at Gerson Lehrman Group, the world’s leading platform to connect clients to a network of more than 650,000 experts, including business leaders, scientists, academics and subject matter specialists.
