Insight Executive   



If you require any adjustments or additional support during the recruitment process, for any reason whatsoever, please let us know at [email protected]  


At EssenceMediacom we want to eradicate inequity. We don't tolerate it and when we see it, we act. We attract, support and develop our talent without bias and strive to foster the empathy, creativity and diversity of thought needed to drive meaningful change for our people, our clients, our industry and our society. WPP and GroupM have already made strong commitments to combat racial injustice. While we are part of this group, we know we have an individual responsibility as an employer and an industry leader to fight against racism. That’s why we have pledged the following seven commitments. 


Even if you don’t meet all the requirements, that’s okay, and we encourage you to apply anyway to find out more about whether this is the right match for you. 


Did you know that marginalised groups including women, people of colour and people with a disability are more likely to discount themself for a role if they don't feel they meet every requirement or understand the reasonable adjustment that can be made? This is why we encourage connection and conversation to ensure that everyone has the opportunity and information needed to find the right role, for them. If this role isn’t quite right, you may be the perfect fit for another – so go ahead, apply and find out! 




The Role 


This is an exciting opportunity to leverage and further develop your qualitative and quantitative research skills in the Research and Insight team of the UK’s largest media agency.  You will get to work with a diverse set of clients, deepening your understanding of different industries (for example, Tesco, Sky, Cancer Research UK, Hasbro, TUI to name a few); building relationships with their planning teams to champion the use of insight and designing and running bespoke research projects. 


Working as a Insight Executive you will have the opportunity to be the day-to-day lead on qualitative and quantitative research projects and see how your research is used to directly influence media planning and buying strategies.  You will get to work on a range of research projects from bespoke projects to answer specific client briefs, research for EssenceMediacom new business pitches, and thought leadership research.  And using a variety of research methodologies from focus groups and depth-interviews to online communities and online surveys. 


EssenceMediacom is a brilliant place to learn; as well as developing your craft, you will have the opportunity to work with other departments within the agency (for example Planning and Strategy teams and Data Science) and learn from their different perspectives.  We have a programme of events throughout the year with engaging sessions and thought-provoking discussions that can inspire you, for example EXPO series showcasing our capabilities, Grow Your Career showcases, and events for Pride Week, World Menopause Day, Black History Month and International Women’s Day to name just a few.   

You will get to build relationships with media owners and have access to, and develop expertise in using, an amazing suite of industry insight tools (for example TGI, YouGov Brand Index, Touchpoints and Similarweb). 



What we think are 3 best things about the job.. 


1.    Variety – No two days are ever the same – you will be working across a range of different clients, categories and objectives.  We encourage the use of innovative techniques and approaches, so you have a real opportunity to try something different and bring some new thinking to our work.
