We have a great opportunity for a talented Data + Insights practitioner, who’s brimming with enthusiasm for data, insights and measurement and is full of intellectual curiosity, and an ambitious self-starter.

Financial and professional services sector

The opportunity we have is in our Financial and Professional Services team. The use of data is critical in helping financial services clients underpin campaigns and land credible narratives in the media and on owned and earned channels. Many of our clients operate in highly regulated markets putting a high price on accuracy and detail.

We’re looking for someone who can champion the use of data in our team – who loves finding the actionable insights that really make a difference to communication campaigns.  You need to be inquisitive, someone who can interpret data and spot trends, with the ability to explain technical issues with clarity in a way people understand. You should have experience with desk and quantitative research (and familiar with the basics of qualitative research) and have a good understanding of web, social media marketing & analytics.  

The role will have three main components:

  1. Working with our clients to use their data and data that we create for them to maximise creative story development – and looking for new data sets that can help in that. We’ll need you to manage research projects from start to finish, ensuring accuracy and making sure that clients understand methodology and that research is fit for purpose. This includes measuring the outputs and outcomes from media activities
  2. Establishing opportunities to partner with other organisations with interesting data sets to enhance our clients’ offerings
  3. Working as a key part of our business development effort – helping the team develop actionable insights from media intelligence, social analytics and third-party research and data
