I have to take a moment to give a shout out to the people at TimelyText.

I’ve been fortunate to work with them in many capacities and am ashamed I’ve not done this previously. TimelyText is a staffing company but not your average “people mill”. They actually know the folks they bring to your door. As a lead and manager I worked with them to build a teams capability. As a vendor I’ve provided services to a client of theirs, and, I’ve been on their staff as a consultant to one of their many clients. Every person that came from them was a fantastic skill fit, which puts the exclamation point behind this next sentence. They take the time to get to know their customers and understand their needs – and they also REALLY know business holistically or they’d not be able to hit the mark so regularly. As a vendor to a customer of theirs, they stayed in touch with me weekly to make sure I was taking care of them in a way that was TT-approved. Outside of doing a favor for their client TT received nothing from this. THAT’S customer service. Positively outrageous customer service too. As a consultant, they’ve only brought me leads that were perfect for me. NO TIME WASTED. 5 rock-finger rating.

They helped staff my department with highly qualified technical writers.

I originally worked with TimelyText when I was a Documentation Manager at Nortel Networks. They helped staff my department with highly qualified technical writers. They have an innate ability to handle complex project initiatives for all types of technical writing venues, able to effectively dissect the task at hand, while retaining a keen focus on the underlying requirements. Both Ronnie and Adrian are highly qualified professionals with a broad knowledge base and exceptional analytical skills. They facilitate strong relationships with stakeholders and peers, and are very enjoyable to work with.

The best individuals often aren’t actively seeking employment. That’s where TimelyText comes in.

I have been really pleased with the TimelyText team.

I have been really pleased with the TimelyText team. They have never disappointed. Whether it was been staffing that they have sourced or project based work they have delivered, they have not disappointed. I think one of the strongest testaments to the quality of staff they have sourced for us is the number that have been subsequently offered full time positions.
