WHAT DOES CONSULTANCY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Consultant

A consultant is a professional who provides professional or expert advice in a particular area such as security, management, accountancy, law, human resources, marketing, finance, engineering, or any of many other specialized fields. A consultant is usually an expert or a professional in a specific field and has a wide knowledge of the subject matter. The role of consultant outside the medical sphere can fall under one of two general categories: ▪ Internal consultant - someone who operates within an organization but is available to be consulted on areas of specialism by other departments or individuals; or ▪ External consultant - someone who is employed externally whose expertise is provided on a temporary basis, usually for a fee. As such this type of consultant generally engages with multiple and changing clients. The overall impact of a consultant is that clients have access to deeper levels of expertise than would be feasible for them to retain in-house, and may purchase only as much service from the outside consultant as desired.
