An operations consultant is there to improve the efficiency and value chain of the company. The services they provide can be anything from developing and implementing target operating or service delivery models to executing cost reduction programmes and optimising overall business processes.
This role involves working within a companies’ marketing department to create advertising materials, increase sales, and develop the customer base to support and encourage exposure of the company’s brand. The advice a marketing consultant provides should be centred around how the company can better target and interact with its audience.
This one pretty much does what it says on the tin. A finance consultant provides financial services advice for businesses, usually offering guidance on how and where a company should put its money. This includes everything from budgeting, green or red lighting high-cost purchases and investments to retirement, trust and estate planning.
