What does a Technical Advisor do?

Technical advisors provide expert knowledge and guidance in their particular field of expertise. This often involves reviewing reports, research materials, or other documents for technical accuracy. They may be asked to consult in general business operations that involve material of a highly technical or scientific nature. They often provide verification or fact-checking services. Technical advisors can serve as subject matter experts who guide internal staff, but they often also interact with external contacts such as business customers and vendors. They may provide the organization’s clients with information or guidance.

Technical advisors typically have at least a bachelor’s degree in their field of expertise, along with extensive professional experience and other credentials. They must be able to explain complicated concepts in a relatable way that is easy to understand.
