MediaCom North – Senior Insight Executive  -  Manchester, City Centre

Location: Based in the heart of Spinningfields with fantastic transport links across the Northwest.

Benefits: We put our people first so have fantastic benefits to discuss.

MediaCom is the Content and Connections agency that focuses on simplifying the complex in an ever-evolving landscape. We are one of the world’s largest media agency networks working for some of the world’s smartest advertisers.  The Insight team works across all MediaCom North Group offices to provide a deep understanding of the way consumers behave, thus shaping the very nature of what we do. 

 Our Insight Teams objectives are simple:  to be the voice of the consumer in comms planning.  This comes from an understanding of people’s attitudes and motivations in all areas from politics and the economy to markets, brands and media channels.

We have a new opportunity to join our Insight team as our Senior Insight Exec.  You will be an out-going Insight or Research specialist with a passion for understanding consumers and what makes them tick. You will have some experience in running qualitative and quantitative research projects.  Whilst  there is a benefit of having experience within Media, this is not essential as we love and value a fresh perspective!

Here at MediaCom, we know that our people are our greatest asset in making us the UK’s leading agency and so we make sure our employees are rewarded and looked after in terms of career growth, social life, and personal welfare

Flexible working is a part of our culture and MediaCom North are proud to be an inclusive employer that can (and will!) offer flexibility in employment from the first day you join us as a member of our team. We recognise that our people want a lifestyle balance that truly reflects and accommodates the many demands of the modern-day world. We would welcome the opportunity to discuss options with anyone interested in becoming a ‘MediaCommer’ as we already have several initiatives in place with options incorporating flexibility from both an hours and location perspective.

We believe that by putting our People First, we deliver Better Results for our clients and create a great place for everyone to enjoy their work.
