If you are a consultant in your field of expertise and have considered spreading your wings to Australia you might have wondered what the really successful specialized consultants in Australia do. Are they the IT-crowed, medical experts or business specialists?
According to information they found based on the analysis by consulting-on-demand provider Expert360 project management, process improvement, data science and analysis, financial modelling and business transformation are the most commonly requested consultancy services in Australia.
“A big trend we’re seeing in these projects is growing demand for data and analysis skills," said Bridget Loudon, CEO of Expert360.
"Businesses are still grappling with how they can best leverage their data to better improve a range of business functions, including internal processes and customer experience.
"This applies across a range of industries, but is particularly relevant in the retail/consumer goods; banking and financial services industries with access to large stores of consumer data and increasing competition from international incumbents."
“Similarly, large companies are looking to bring in experienced project managers to effectively define and drive project success," says Loudon.
"There is strong demand across big corporates for strong project management,. However, insurance, banking, mining and minerals and the healthcare sector demonstrated a particular need for project management skills.
"High quality project managers are incredibly important for enterprise businesses as they not only manage cost and timings, but encourage teamwork, ensure quality and manage integration.”
