Therefore, you will become the go-to expert in Retail data insight for the UK team – influencing real-life business decisions on a weekly basis.

What is involved in the role

  • Working with the Category Team to be the sole source of all continuous data insight for the UK team
  • Drive knowledge of UK grocery market through analysis of Tetley and competitor activity

Head/Manage your own projects such as:

In return, we offer a fun, friendly and sociable work environment, an unrivalled learning experience and, for industrial placements, a generous salary too.

Knowledge of the UK retail environment would be a bonus but not a pre-requisite. What’s vital is someone who is naturally inquisitive, with a real passion and flair for creating compelling insights from various data sources.

Must have excellent numeric and analytical skills and be fluent in oral and written English.
