Those working in the consultancy sector provide external clients with advice and services to improve the efficiency, performance and profits of their businesses. This advice might pertain to issues including operational management, strategy and planning, human resources, financial management or environment.
In most cases, consultants are based on the client’s site and are tasked with analysing certain aspects of the business through detailed observation, data analysis and collection, and reviewing records and reports. This could be in areas such as environmental impact, office culture, overall strategy, business structure, or how the organisation is managed. Afterwards, consultants offer recommendations for improving or solving any problems the business is experiencing.
Consultants often focus on a particular area of the business depending on their expertise,. However, some larger consultancies may take a more holistic approach, analysing each section of the business and suggesting company-wide solutions.
Organisations will sometimes call in business consultants to provide resources and advise on projects such as company restructuring, whilst others might have a focus in a specific sector – e.g. the environment or healthcare. It’s a varied job that requires confidence and tenacity and can also be very rewarding both professionally and financially.
