I'm looking for a means of expressing a type of individual (or the burden of dealing with a type of individual) that is hired/outsourced but is not autonomous, initiated nor can they deliver anything beyond what one commands them to do.
I'm trying to draw a distinction between the following two extremes:
- a drone with no experience beyond the limited task for which they're hired.
- a consultant that can boast direct business experience at a high capacity.
E.g. Describing the difference in the service experience between an average domestic painter and a prolific interior design consultant.
E.g. Describing the difference between a web designer that claims to offer marketing (but in actuality offers little more than remedial S.E.O. measures) and a bona fide marketing specialist.
