The Role

We’re looking for a natural analyst and communicator to help us investigate the most fascinating trends in the UK’s high-growth economy. You’ll be working with big name public and private sector clients to help them understand these trends. And you’ll work alongside a fun and intelligent team in a fast-paced, startup environment to deliver on high-value projects.

Beauhurst’s unique and rapidly expanding data set is the number one source for finding and understanding the UK’s most ambitious companies. In Consultancy, we get creative with this data to sell and deliver bespoke products and solutions to hugely varied clients.

If you join our team, you’ll get to work for Government clients such as Innovate UK and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. You’ll be using high-level, aggregate analysis of the high-growth ecosystem to help them answer questions like: what is the impact of innovation funding? What bottlenecks do companies face when they seek finance?

For private sector clients like EY and Penningtons Manches, you’ll look at the impact of different types of investment; or help them demonstrate thought leadership through novel research.

Your outputs will be varied too, and can be anything from a simple CSV file to a 50-page report, quoted in national press, policy papers and academic research. In short, you’ll have a genuine impact on activity in the most exciting part of the UK’s economy.

Responsibilities

There’s huge scope for the role to develop around you depending on your strengths and interests – for instance you might choose to focus more on the client-facing/sales side of things; or on the delivery and analysis side. Either way, for starters you’ll:

  • Create project proposals in response to client meetings and government tenders
  • Perform analysis in Excel or Tableau
  • Undertake bespoke research (desk-based, interview etc)
  • Write reports based on analysis
  • Suggest lines of inquiry into our data that would create new insight for our clients

As you progress, you’ll do things like:

  • Meet with clients to scope out their needs, discuss project proposals and deliver or present reports
  • Work with our product Development to plan and implement technical solutions (APIs etc)

Throughout all this, you’ll help shape the future of our rapidly growing company, the department and your role within it.

About you

You’ll be great if you:

  • Have excellent skills in analysis, writing and communication
  • Have fantastic digital skills
  • Are keen to learn about the UK high-growth economy
  • Are professional and are capable of working various client types

Bonus points for:

  • Good excel skills
  • Experience writing analytical content
  • Experience with Tableau
  • Graphic design experience

Salary: £23k plus bonus and commission

As well as that, we’re delighted to offer:
