You will be reporting into the Insight Manager, with a principal remit of driving actionable insight into the company's marketing teams, providing them recommendations based off research and market data to inform marketing promotional, product selection and campaign decisions.
A fair amount of emphasis will be on the various retail events which make up any retailer's trading calendar. This will include things like Christmas, Black Friday, Valentines, Mother's and Father's Day, spring/summer/winter sales, etc. etc.
You will be drawing your insight from both primary source (trading data, shopping trends, what people are looking at online and maybe not converting on vs what they are) and secondary source (Kantar research, TNS Data, customer, market and competitor data etc.) to build a picture of consumer trends and commercial opportunities, drawing conclusions as to what are the right things to be pushing and promoting, giving that guidance and evidence to the marketing team to take action upon.
Although this role includes a lot of analysis, it's not a data analyst position. This is all about research insight - looking over qualitative and quantitative data and drawing salient conclusions you can translate into meaningful and compelling stories for the marketing and commercial teams.
Spotting the right trends and commercial opportunities are key to advising the right marketing strategies which result in a meaningful impact to the company's bottom line.
