Consultants within the Training Services have 2-4 years of experience at the firm, relevant industry expertise, or have an academic background in conflict resolution, communications, business, or political science/international relations (although not limited to these). Consultants are thought partners to in the creation of learning solutions for clients.
Consultants play a significant role on client engagements, develop junior team members’ skills and manage key touch points in the client relationship. Consultants have an opportunity to work across a variety of industries, and closely with Vantage’s core areas of expertise including negotiation, influence, change management. They are responsible for helping to design and create materials, including slide decks, job aids, and custom case studies. Illustrative activities include assisting with project management activities, conducting diagnostic calls, and developing core client materials, including case studies and exercises, presentation decks, and facilitation guides.
Consultants take the lead with clients to make sure commitments made, either by Vantage or the client, are carried through to assure success. They drive projects forward, looking at the bigger strategic pieces that need to be addressed, generating activities around project tasks that can be executed by others. They work closely with Project Specialists in a mentorship role to make sure project plans are executed, and to provide coaching and feedback.
Consultants also have the opportunity to assist with long-term internal initiatives, including supporting business development activities, conducting research studies, and drafting contributions to business publications and blogs. Consultants are given greater client-facing responsibilities and ownership opportunities over time. With demonstrated subject matter expertise and experience with client relationships, Consultants can move into the leadership role of Senior Consultant.
