Salary: Competitive and dependent on experience
Contract: Full time and permanent

What you’ll be doing:
Your days will be varied and full, with plenty of opportunity to learn. You’ll be:
- Managing the entire research process, from drafting surveys, designing sampling strategies, managing data collection, and processing results.
- Producing analysis and translating it into clear and actionable reports and presentations for an exciting range of clients.
- Learning and applying the fundamentals of data analysis, including regression, segmentation, principal component analysis and more.

- Ideally some familiarity with programming languages like Python or R. (We very much welcome applications from people who are just starting out with these tools, you don’t need to be any kind of expert.)
