Principal Analyst - Marketing Analytics

Analytics & Insight, London


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!
Overview of role
The role of Principal Marketing Analyst within Analytics & Insight is to support data led decision making across our planning teams, responsible for ensuring all available analysis and insight, and the tools provided by such, are being used to optimise marketing activity.

Our team is crucial for our client’s success by delivering a data-driven approach to media strategy, planning and activation with an emphasis on accountability and innovation. This unit also empowers & guides the wider EssenceMediacom network on their own transformative data journey.
This is an exciting new development as previously our analytics experts have all been in a central team focusing on individual large projects, whereas this new roll will work directly with planning teams with far more focused objectives on a smaller number of clients, while still very much being a member of the broader A&I community
