The Role

The team in London is a group of 30+ specialists covering four principal areas of data and analytics: Business Intelligence, Audience & Data Strategy, Research & Insights and Advanced Analytics.  The teams support client deliverables for UK clients, as well as Global and EMEA clients based out of the London hub. The Business Intelligence EMEA team provides a critical role in providing their clients with access to clean, organized data, insightful visualisations, and actionable insights. There has been a lot of growth within this team more recently and this is due to the demand from partners.
