In the business world, the human resource (HR) department is responsible for the recruitment and management of a company’s workforce. In large firms, the HR department is usually overseen by a vice president who assigns several managers to head sections within the department. These managers lead teams of consultants, the most senior of whom are referred to as lead consultants. Due to their experience and seniority, lead consultants are often relied upon by managers to provide leadership and guidance to junior team members and to offer advice and support to senior members.
