The most in demand consultant skills in Australia

7th September 2017

Project management, process improvement, data science and analysis, financial modelling and business transformation are the most commonly requested consultancy services in Australia, according to analysis by consulting-on-demand provider Expert360.

The company, a marketplace matching one-off consulting projects with pre-screened white collar workers, analysed more than 500 project postings from Australian companies with more than $500 million in annual revenue since the start of the year to find the most commonly requested consultant skills.

“A big trend we’re seeing in these projects is growing demand for data and analysis skills," says 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."
