Associate, RBR

RBR’s Associate role is focused on international primary and secondary research, including surveys, executive interviews, analysis of data and statistics and report writing. Our work is both quantitative and qualitative. The role is varied as you will be involved in reports, consulting, newsletters and conference activities.

Candidates must be fluent in English (essential) – fluency in another language is valuable but not essential and we are open to candidates who do not speak another language but have a passion for building a career in market intelligence.   We regularly use the following European languages: French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Russian and Turkish, and also have an interest in non-European languages including Arabic, Farsi, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin and Thai.

Successful candidates will typically have a mix of strong communication, writing and numerical skills, and the ability to build relationships with research contacts around the world.

You will have significant individual responsibility, while working as part of larger project teams. As you build your career within the business you will gain increased project manager responsibilities. You will acquire knowledge of and insight into the latest developments in banking and retail automation, cards and payments plus a wide range of research and strategy consulting skills.

This position is ideal for candidates with 2-6 years of researcher, analyst or other post-degree experience – this would perhaps be your second or third job. We are looking for motivated graduates able to work on their own and in teams. You should have a good academic background, an understanding of research and analysis and fluent (native standard) written and spoken English.

RBR prides itself on its commitment to employee development and we are focusing on candidates who are interested in building their career at RBR over 2+ years with the company.

The role is office-based for the first three months, after which associates are required to work in the office a minimum of 3 days a week for the first 2 years, and a minimum of 2 days after 2+ years.
