Are internal corporate development / BizOps roles traditionally pretty technical? I want to get away from client-facing roles however I’ve been a generalist consultant (4 YOE) with limited hard skills. Are these the types of roles I should be searching for?

Corp dev requires deal experience. Either banking or DDs in consulting. BizOps is general business/ process stuff. Some companies it's more operational, some it's more strategic. For the more strategic, it's a lot of ex strategy consultants. So less about technical skills for either job, but still looking for pretty specific background.
