Additionally, Senior Consultants support directors in lead generation and the sales process, and eventually lead sales. Senior Consultants are leaders in the hub and will be expected to take on leadership responsibilities, including supporting internal learning and team management.
As a Senior Consultant, you’ll gain valuable experience with and knowledge of Salesforce (the world’s leading cloud-computing platform, currently used by more than 150,000 for-profit and 30,000 non-profit organizations worldwide).
