IT Consultant (m/f/d)

IT Consultants as external professionals for complex IT projects

IT consultants are advisors for information and communication technology. They are always used when IT projects become too large or too complicated for companies. The external specialists usually work either as freelancers or as employees, e.g. on behalf of a management consultancy. Depending on the project, IT consultants adapt the existing IT to the requirements or design and implement completely new IT solutions. To do this, the existing technology must first be analyzed in order to then optimize it. The job of an IT consultant is both demanding and varied, because it always involves company-specific solutions. Since IT consultants act as an interface between developers, engineers and managers, additional soft skills on the communicative and organizational level are required in addition to technical know-how in information technology.
As a personnel service provider, we also act as an interface, but with a completely different specialization: successful mediation between applicants and companies. We would be pleased to be at your disposal as well.
