A Salesforce Consultant is often a hybrid role that can include project management, business analysis, system design and development.
A consultant will present themselves as an expert that typically operates within a consultancy environment or as a freelancer to help clients implement Salesforce.
A consultant is an expert that is trained and certified in Salesforce admin and a range of Salesforce consultancy certifications.
These are the main responsibilities of being a Salesforce Consultant and what job postings include. You can learn these through our supermums programmes.
You might not have all of the key skills required but your previous knowledge and experience are also what recruiters and companies are looking for.
Our Supermums Programme will support you with developing these skills that you don’t have or need to refresh.

You have a meeting scheduled with a Client to discuss the status on a project - you discuss actions, milestones, planned dates with the Client.
