Major difference between the two positions is; Sales Coordinator is an employee and ethically eligible to take decisions within the area of his authority/responsibility and Sales Consultant is an advisory position providing consultative and advisory services and support in making decisions but do not take decision on their own.
I am working in Saudi Arabia and here organizations do not have a well developed organizational structure so, it is very difficult to differentiate who is on top and below but we can consider - it depends upon the organizational structure adopted by your company.
Hopes to replied in accordance with the available information, provide more information or share job descriptions to give you more information.

you need to be clear about their job descriptions. If you have the job descriptions with grading's and internal relationship's. It will be very easier for you to understand the difference between both. Also the organizational structure would help you out.

Hai friend,
regarding the employee rights and duties, in general terms and conditions will narrate in the appointment letter. The duties and responsibilities will tell by the boss. Rights will be clarified in the law of land. In private organisations it difficult to define the hierarchy will be decided by the ceo.
Before thinking about rights and duties it is better to accept that boss is right. Money is the motivation factor in the world.

Dear Friend,

In a country like Saudi Arabia, Employees do not have any rights although duties are extensive and what ever work asked by the employer is the duty of employee. Any way in any organisation an employee is having rights like sanction of leave of junior team members, approval of their bills, or sanction of expanses till some limit, this depends and differ from company to company as in my career I have seen companies where VP was having the power of signing vouchers up to an amount of Rs.500.00 and sanction of discount up to 10% but the Area head reporting to same VP was having powers to approve discount up to 12% and expenditure up to Rs.10000/Bill so it depends on the trust of management on a particular person. So dear in private sector there are no powers and it depends on the person to person. On other hand The difference between sales Consultant and Sales coordinator is very clear, both are employees and consultant's Job is basically to procure orders and satisfy the clients on other hand sales coordinator is one who compile the orders from a group of Sale Consultants and process them . Actually the sales coordinator is like an back end sales supervisor but again it's not a legally defined issue and depends on the Management what designation they give to employee.

I hope this will clear some of your doubts.

With best wishes.

By definition and legal terminology applicable to country like India,a consultant should not be in the pay roll of the employer and he/she can not be considered as an 'employee' of the company.There is no employee-employer relationship in case of consultant. Services provided by the consultant shall be as per mutually signed agreement between the parties. In case of a sales coordinator, it is expected that there should be an appointment letter issued to the coordinator, where as in case of consultant, it should be in the form of agreement. In both the cases, contents of the documents signed/received by the parties should be checked against the legal framework applicable to the country.
