What is project-based/contract staffing?

In a project-based/contract role, a professional is hired for a fixed amount of time or for the duration of a project. These contracts require a specific skill set to achieve project objectives within an established time frame. Projects may run from six to 36 months in length with varying roles and responsibilities. Professionals who desire flexibility regarding timelines and role responsibilities may prefer project-based/contract work over long-term, traditional full-time roles. With BKD’s diverse client and business needs, this opens a different avenue for potential candidates to work with BKD and for employees to pursue unique internal career mobility.

What groups within BKD have added this staffing option to their teams?

BKD’s Public Sector Advisory Services (PSAS) offers a wide variety of solutions beyond standard accounting services, such as financial consulting, risk, IT, and program management services to federal, state, and local governmental agencies.

BKD Health Care Performance Advisory Services (HCPAS) helps equip hospitals and health systems to standardize and streamline revenue cycle processes, leverage health care data to improve care delivery, and prepare for the transition to value-based payment models.

BKD’s Information Technology department supports internal expectations and growth initiatives that support critical areas for the audit of the future, system expansions, and software development for proprietary applications.

What’s the process to be considered for project-based/contract roles?

You can submit your resume and profile for the type of work that interests you. As BKD engages in specific project-based/contract work for our clients, the requirements for each position will be defined further for your consideration. We anticipate positions to include manager, senior, and early career roles. BKD will email you with details of opportunities as they arise. You can choose whether to apply for a specific opportunity or pass until another opportunity that fits your experience and interest surfaces.

What experience and qualifications are needed for project-based/contract roles?

Work locations may change based on client requirements. Travel may be expected.
