Associate Research Consultant - Italian Speaking

Clear, structured strategies for success are all important at the best of times and even more so now. The opportunity here is to work with an intelligent, collaborative group that delivers the incisive data and analysis that triggers decisions and drives those strategies. These insights are delivered across European markets, making Italian language skills a must for this particular role alongside the ability to speak, write and engage an audience in English.

Delivering for the financial services industry, you'll be carrying out complex research projects and deep, unscripted conversations with key figures as well as monitoring published data; a key, central component will be gathering competitive intelligence for your clients. The ability to think on your feet, communicate compellingly, identify and engage busy, senior experts is a must; if you can demonstrate that ability in a qualitative research and/or consultancy environment with a focus on competitive intelligence gathering and analysis then that's step one. If you have a deep interest in financial services and/or a strong academic background in related disciplines (economics, business for example) then that's step two.

The third key component here is the ability to present the findings in an insightful, engrossing and inspiring way; you're guiding key decisions that will drive product development and marketing strategy. You'll need to build and present deck that demands attention and offers genuine value to your clients.

Finally, written and spoken Communication skills are all important at every step and the ability to engage in complex discussion, swiftly learning key words, players and challenges in niche disciplines, will be crucial. You'll also be able to do it in multiple languages (English Italian fluency).

I'm aware that I'm asking a lot here. In return, you'll get a positive, collaborative environment and team around you, a company focused on staff wellbeing and personal development and a long list of benefits. Please do get in touch if you feel inspired.
