With our headquarters in Germany and a presence in around 60 countries worldwide, you benefit from our global company with a diverse community of ~9,000 employees.
Harnessing the power of our workforce, the greatest asset we have is our people. As part of GfK, you can take your future into your own hands. We value talent, skills and responsibility and support your development within our international teams. We are proud of our heritage and our future: Currently we are in the latter stages of a transformational journey from a traditional market research company to a trusted provider of prescriptive data analytics powered by innovative technology. This is only possible with extraordinary people and this is why we are looking for YOU to help create our future. For our employees as well as for our clients we pursue one goal: Growth from Knowledge!
As a Client Solutions Consultant you will work in partnership with some of our major communications clients to truly understand their key business questions, design analysis that not only brings in data from our Tech360 product but also utilizes other GfK solutions to create compelling stories that help them to understand both the market as it is now and what to do next.
Our Tech360 product is a key part of our solutions offering in the UK. It has grown rapidly over the past few years and continues to expand its reach and coverage. The solution focuses on mobile, Pay TV and broadband for the Telco industry and is used by leading players as a key data source for understanding the market landscape and size, including the who’s, what’s, whys and how’s of consumer decision making.
If you’re a people person this would be ideal as the day-to-day role involves working closely with other departments across the business, from Sales on integrating data and presentations, to marketing sciences on data weighting and imputation and with Operations on managing the day-to-day running of the product.
However, being able to work with and draw out useful insights from highly complex data is an absolute must. The telco market involves interactions of multiple products, devices, operators and manufacturers, and our questionnaire and dataset reflects this complexity. The successful candidate must have an eye for detail and be able to grasp the inner workings of the resulting data and translate this into actionable insights for clients.
We’re looking for a real team player who can work with and support the rest of the GfK team in driving success for this growing area of the UK business.
