RESEARCH EXECUTIVE Quant
This company was looking for an enthusiastic, energetic, quant-focused Research Executive to join this supportive and growing team. This company has a real buzz and will reward people who help to drive that growth. The company supports and encourages new ideas which will add value.
If you are an intern or entry level researcher currently working in a market research consultancy, and are hungry to make a personal impact in a fast-growing, successful agency then this is the role and company for you.
Your skills & experience
You will be expected to demonstrate some research experience via either internships in market research agencies or as part of university courses. You would have been contributing to a wide range of research projects, demonstrating your outstanding written and verbal skills, excellent attention to detail and time management skills on a daily basis. You are interested in how research applies to business challenges and are keen on using your initiative to grow, develop and learn. Your team trust you and you will have the respect of your peers.
You will play a key part in proactively supporting the team. Your specialism will be in quant insight but you will have an interest in everything else in research, strategy, branding, data analytics and design. You will be given responsibility from day one, drafting proposals, questionnaires, reports and presentations. You will undertake desk research to support your proposals and client work. You will work alongside the Data Solutions team to test online and telephone surveys and you will play a key role in bringing data to life through data visualisation. You will have the opportunity to be client facing, whilst supporting the new business process.
The role centres mostly around public sector clients (75%) such as government departments and regulators, while 25% focuses on clients across a range of sectors including technology, healthcare, financial, telecoms, media, and charities. Client includes Department for International Trade, the Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office, Ofcom, The British Film Institute, Cancer Research UK, Workday, Which? and Compare the Market.
A large proportion of the research conducted in the team is international in nature and involves the application of a wide range of analytical methods from behavioural science techniques (e.g. implicit), to advanced analytics (e.g. segmentation, drivers, trade-off), and engaging visualisations and outputs. There are therefore many opportunities to be exposed to new and exciting innovative approaches while also working on some fascinating studies that reveal the global views of how people think, feel, and behave. You will also have an opportunity to work on official reports which are published in the public domain
