If successful, you will be helping some of the UK’s leading companies solve their strategic issues, by understanding their markets and unlocking potential opportunities for growth.

An excellent phone manner is also required as the role involves a variety of telephone research. Confidence with numbers is highly desirable. Applicants with foreign language skills, such as French and German, are encouraged.
Business Analyst activities and responsibilities will include the following:

How to Apply
Applications for Business Analyst positions commencing in September 2019 are now closed, and we are not accepting applications at this time.
Unfortunately, we are unable to offer the sponsorship of post-study/ tiered visa applications. The successful candidate must have permission to work in the UK by the start of their employment. For permanent positions we look to hire new staff on a long term basis, therefore candidates must hold a Tier 2 visa or above with the right to work in the UK indefinitely.
