Salary:                  Up to £32,000 base salary and benefits

If variety be the spice of life, then this one’s spicier than Nando’s new Vusa sauce!

It's about 80% quant research biased in nature. But you’re going to have the opportunity to apply lots of other techniques too. As the kind of projects you’ll be working on cover a wide and diverse range of studies and topics, including:

  • Creative effectiveness
  • Audience segmentations
  • Social listening studies
  • Customer profiling
  • Audience definition studies – e.g. digital audience builds for programmatic campaigns
  • Primary brand tracker studies
  • Insight projects to support agency pitch work
  • Working in collaboration with data science and visualisation teams on client projects which require a combined approach

Also working on things and tools which need you to go beyond just first party interrogations.

In addition, you won’t be doing all this stuff just for one business. You’ll be working with a wide variety of businesses and brands, including FMCG, financial services, retailers, gaming and games publishing businesses.

So it’s true to say you’re unlikely to find yourself getting bored and the project variety means this will never feel like a production line, and there’s going to be a ton of opportunities for developing new skills and knowledge.

About the business

If you’ve not already guessed, this is for an agency.

They’re actually a media agency who also happen to have a rather sizable data and insight function of 60.

Working with tools like SPSS, as well as GWI and TGI data sets, survey and syndication tools.

The team, and this position, work across both primary and secondary source research data and it’s a pretty even split of handling both.

The team you’ll be joining are a really nice bunch. Subject matter experts who are very supportive and collaborative in how they approach client projects.

This is a new appointment to the team to support on a growing demand from clients for research insight.

It’s wider agency has a global footprint and is one of the biggest names in the advertising and media industry, with a stellar reputation.
