A Global manufacturer and supplier of industrial equipment are looking for a Research and Insight Assistant.

The role

A Research and Insight Assistant position has been created to meet increased demand within the Strategic Marketing team of this global company. Analysing customer data is vital for the business to drive forward and the expansion of this department is testament to the important role they play in the business. The Research and Insight Assistant will support the Insight Manager across a number of projects at any given time, creating marketing assessment reports, presenting data analysis, collating data surrounding competitor intelligence and conducting customer research.

What we're looking for

First and foremost, we are looking for an experienced Insight Analyst. This is not a marketing role and unfortunately we won't be able to consider applications from marketers who have conducted elements of analysis within a traditional marketing role. You'll be a graduate with a minimum of 3 years' experience in analysis and you're sure that this is the career path for you. As well as someone with a head for figures and excellent attention to detail, we want someone who isn't frightened to suggest new ideas based on their findings. If your research has highlighted an area where the business should be focussing or brought to your attention an untapped customer base, then you'll be expected to speak up! This is because you have good commercial awareness and know that there's more to figures than just what's on a spread sheet. We'd like to see post holder eventually taking ownership of their own projects, so you'll need to be confident in working with product teams and have past experience in pitching for funding. You'll be IT literate, have a proven ability to interpret large data sheets, understand quantitative data, be confident when speaking to customers and display an excellent understanding of customer trends.

What's on offer?

This is a unique opportunity to get your teeth in to a new role and really make it your own. The Strategic Marketing team are growing along with the company and they are really keen to take on someone who will bring a valuable new skill set to the table. They will reward this by trying to making most of your own unique skills as the role progresses. You'll get the best of both by working a nice, small, friendly office, within a huge, privately owned company. They are genuinely offering a career with longevity and will reward your commitment to the business. Salary is up to £25,000.
