Senior Analyst - Marketing Science

** Top Media Agency **





An unusual analytics role which requires an individual with potential, rather than ‘ number of years experience’; so could suit a middle weight or senior statistical Analyst looking to diversify their skills within the complex and sophisticated world of econometrics, market mix modelling and marketing science.


This role would suit an intellectually curious, bright and client facing statistical Analyst, ambitious to move into a strategic, yet technical marketing science role.

You DO NOT have to have extensive commercial experience to secure and succeed in this role – in fact, the hiring manager is specifically looking for high performing individuals with huge potential.


Technically you should have a strong education in Maths and statisticss or economics, with a good grasp of the mathematics behind econometrics in particular as the role focuses heavily on margin ROI, response curves and Market Mix Modelling (MMM). You don’t HAVE to have used these specific techniques before but would need to pick it up quickly and initially demonstrate you understand how it works during the interview process.

Again, you need to have a flexible and curious mindset and take a solutions focused approach in order to innovate around this and find new ways to help accurately calculate media spend and ultimately deliver improved ROI.

Additionally, you will work in partnership with your manager to continue building on the agency’s range of analytical products as well as taking a research lead on analytical creativity and innovation.

The working environment is also unusual for a media agency, as everyone sits in one building, works collaboratively together across accounts and everyone is considered a planner. So people are not siloed into divisions, there is a cohesive approach and this enables them to work a more agile and forward thinking manner.
