  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • My role as the Research Intern is to support Audience Insight team within the Insight function, helping to provide actionable insights on the wider audience to the rest of the business. I support with a large range of tasks which all aim in supporting the generation and sharing of consumer insights. This includes working with stakeholders on their insight questions, designing and analysing data from qualitative and quantitative research projects, working with secondary research resources and presenting back insights & recommendations to stakeholders. I also do a lot of agile Insight sharing to the wider business, keeping key stakeholders in the loop with the latest news and trends, as well as working closely with the market and customer teams to join the dots between market trends and customer data/behaviours in order to tell an engaging story.
