Consulting continues to be rapidly growing industry with firms of all sizes competing for the best and brightest talent. 


In order to stay ahead of the curve, it is important to understand the latest trends in consulting sector recruitment. 


One of the most notable trends is the move away from traditional large consulting firms towards smaller, more nimble boutique firms. This is in part due to the increasing popularity of digital transformation and other disruptive technologies, which require a different skill set than traditional management consulting. 


As a result, we are seeing an increase in the number of job openings for consultants with experience in digital transformation and other cutting-edge technologies. In addition, we found that there is a growing demand for consultants with experience in data analytics, machine learning and cyber security.


To be successful in the consulting sector, professionals need a combination of hard and soft skills. On the hard skills side, they need to be able to analyze data, develop models, and solve complex problems. They also need to be excellent communicators and have the ability to develop relationships with clients. On the soft skills side, they need to be able to think creatively, work independently and as part of complex teams.


The consulting sector is one of the most competitive industries to work in. With so many talented and ambitious people applying vying for a limited number of positions, it can be difficult to stand out from the crowd. However, there are a few key skills (mentioned above) that all the best consulting firms look for in their employees. 


However, I continue to find they want people who are able to think strategically and see the big picture. Consulting is all about coming up with creative solutions to complex problems, so firms need employees who are able to think outside the box.


What does consulting excellence mean to you? 


To some, it may mean providing the best possible service to clients, always going above and beyond to exceed expectations. Others may view excellence in consulting as staying up-to-date on the latest industry trends and using that knowledge to develop innovative solutions for clients. Ultimately, consulting excellence is about maintaining the highest standards in everything you do, whether it’s developing relationships with clients or collaborating with team members.
