An Identity Consultant is primarily responsible for the implementation of a project, whether it be a full deployment project, or a proof-of-concept. The role supports the Identity Architect and involves the ability to extract and understand the customer’s requirements, from a business and technical point of view. The Consultant is involved in the delivery of all aspects of the technical solution, including the definition and installation of a development environment, the configuration of server components, and specific fulfillment and support of the testing and deployment of the system. In addition to the technical capabilities involved, the Identity Consultant needs to be capable of engaging with the customer to clarify requirements, present technical options with reasoned argumentation, and be equipped to negotiate trade-offs. The Consultant must be self-driven – they will not always have the direct support of an architect on-site. For some engagements (e.g., proofs-of-concept) they will be required to structure and deliver the engagement while working independently.
The Consultant will have technical skills with a strong Microsoft bias. An advanced Microsoft certification is required. Experience with appropriate technologies is essential – not all consultants will cover all technologies, of course, but skills in Active Directory, Azure, Microsoft 365, SQL Server, are required. The Consultant will support the Architect with expert advice on technical matters, making timely use of technical reference resources to extend their knowledge as required. Unlike in some environments, the Consultant does not have luxury of focusing exclusively on a set of tools or technologies – a willingness to step outside of their comfort-zone and to learn new technologies and approaches is essential.
To contribute to the success of the consulting practice by generating revenue and delivering successful, profitable projects either as project lead or as a key member of a project team; and indirectly by supporting sales activities by identifying and driving service improvements and new service offerings.

Look to delight customers, enhance company reputation, and justify our claim to being experts by:
- Acting responsibly with clients’ budgets, systems, and data – the people you are working with day to day may not be the same people who are looking at the cost; it is your responsibility to be aware of the commercial arrangements for the engagement and to monitor the budget.
- Ensuring that our deliverables (code, documentation, and systems) are high quality and would stand up to any scrutiny. Seek guidance if you are in any doubt about the quality.
- Raising concerns and potential issues through the appropriate channels so that they can be addressed and planned for before they grow into monsters– if there’s any chance it might bite us later, raise it now.
- Keeping delivery promises and communicating slippage at the earliest possible opportunity through the appropriate channel.
- Understanding the customer’s business imperatives and showing appropriate flexibility – remember we’re experts in Identity Management, not in how they should run their business.
- Endeavoring to exceed customer expectation by delivering on (or under) time and budget and in doing so, encourage a long-term, commercial relationship based on trust.

OCG is hiring
We are always keeping an eye out for outstanding account managers, architects, consultants, and engagement managers who share our passion for creating effective solutions. View the job descriptions below to see if your skills might be a match for OCG.
