Salesforce Marketing Cloud Consultant
A Marketing Cloud Consultant will have a broad range of responsibilities depending on the size and focus of the Salesforce Partner that they work for; this can range from implementing of SFMC on multi-cloud projects, integrating with third-party platforms, or even projects that involve upskilling or training users.
The type of projects that a partner typically focuses will also determine what they look for in candidates for SFMC Consultant roles; for example, if a partner has a relatively small SFMC practice, and has someone who is very technical already working for them, then they will be interested in someone who has a more business-focused skillset.
This person would, therefore, need to be able to engage with key stakeholders and understand the business needs, in order to translate into technical requirements. Other consultancies that have a more technical need will be looking for candidates that have configuration experience, as well as experience of integrating with third-party platforms.
These are the main responsibilities of being a Salesforce Marketing Cloud 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.
