Professional services represent an important contribution to the economy in an increasing process of outsourcing. They provide technical and unique functions performed by independent workers or specialized companies, and include those provided to the final consumer as to the company. They cover a combination of branches of activity such as consulting, auditing, legal services, executive search, engineering, health, etc. Consultancies and service companies have a great concentration on knowledge, which require specialization and continuous learning.
This sector requires professionals with a high level of autonomy in their day to day, but able to work with global teams (especially in multinationals and the “bigfour”) They must show impartiality in their decisions and be technically sound to become opinion leaders in their activity. Commercial skills and team management are especially evident when they assume top-level positions within the company.
