What does a Professional Services Consultant do?

Professional services consultants provide support, advice, and guidance on business or technical topics. They generally perform services in a specialized area of expertise, such as financial strategy or process optimization. They may analyze current operational procedures and identify opportunities for improvement or areas where they can provide value. They often guide high-level strategic planning and decision-making processes and assist with the conception and implementation of major initiatives and high-priority projects. They may define and document best practices, guidelines, and procedures.

Professional services consultants typically have at least a bachelor’s degree in a business, computer science, or technical discipline, although an advanced degree is an asset. They have extensive experience in their area of business expertise. These roles require strong analytical skills and good project management capabilities.
