Job Description

Research Analysts (RAs) are passionate about conducting research. Their research drives the analysis and strategic direction of our work for clients, and it has a direct impact on the clients’ businesses, which are typically global companies with >$1 Billion in revenue. 

RAs are experts at using a variety of public and proprietary desktop research sources and conducting targeted and efficient searches for relevant information and developing that into usable insights. They also genuinely enjoy talking to people, and find it easy to connect with a wide range of people and to engage them in meaningful conversations from which they can create structured market intelligence. Primary research with senior executives and mid-level professionals include ‘cold calling’ techniques as well as conducting pre-scheduled interviews. RAs also help train and supervise the research activities of Project Analysts and Interns.

At various times RAs will also be staffed on business development initiatives, proposal development, recruitment, and marketing activities.
