Junior Insight Executive

View job description

Are you a curious thinker, careful number cruncher and enthusiastic communicator who finds satisfaction in drawing actionable conclusions from complex information? Do you take pride in creating useful reports and resources for internal and external customers? Are you excited by the thought of working with unique datasets in an industry with unique data needs? And, most importantly, can you spot the insights needle in the data haystack?

If so, we want you to join a rapidly growing new team within Keystone’s global higher education search and discovery business. Reporting to the Director for Audience and Insight, you’ll help take charge of a range of insights data sets and reporting activities, including web analytics from millions of users per month and a leading quant tracker survey of prospective students.

You’ll use this data to create useful business insight for our sales and marketing teams, as well as outputs going directly to current prospective customers: helping them understand the rapidly changing market we work in and the value our products can offer them.

Who are we?

At Keystone we’re one of the largest providers of student recruitment solutions for global higher education. With millions of users across our platforms, the datasets we have to work with are vast. But every one of those datapoints is part of a unique student journey.

Our insights help us fulfill our goal of connecting the right students with the right educational opportunities; by understanding what audience want and need, we can help universities engage and support them.

The Keystone Data and Insights team is based in Sheffield, within our FindAUniversity business unit, but you’ll have the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues across our range of businesses including over 700+ employees across more than 30 nationalities with offices in 11 different countries.

Key responsibilities

  • Deliver regular customer-facing market insight outputs: using our bespoke dashboards to analyse data, draw conclusions and present the resulting narrative in a consistent format.
  • Create materials for use by sales and marketing teams in presentations and workshops, ensuring the expertise of Keystone’s representatives and enhancing the value they offer customers.
  • Produce thought leadership pieces drawing on insight from our data and pitch for PR opportunities with specialist media as relevant.
  • Help manage ongoing quant surveys: adding and removing questions, protecting and enhancing data trends and ensuring we’re collecting the right insight.
  • Assist with presentations and webinars, including preparation of narrative and material as well as potentially taking part in hosting and delivery of some sessions.
  • Collaborate with colleagues and stakeholders, including data analyst coworkers as well as other teams such as sales and marketing.

Who are we looking for?

We’re after an enthusiastic and independent thinker able to find their way around a dataset, crunch the numbers and communicate the insight they find. This role would suit someone looking to develop their career by joining a team that knows what it wants to do but needs your help to do more of it. This is a new role with scope to develop and specialise. It would suit someone with a background in marketing, journalism and content creation as well someone with specific experience in data and insight.

Essential

  • Educated to degree level (or equivalent qualification / work experience).
  • Strong copywriting and editorial skills – able to clearly communicate when writing insights reports and thought leadership pieces.
  • Strong numeracy skills – comfortable with analysing complex datasets, making the right calculations and drawing accurate and appropriate conclusions.
  • Problem solving skills – able to persist when the answer to a question isn’t obvious and find the right way to a solution.
  • Organisational and time management skills – able to manage multiple projects with different stakeholders and deadlines.

Desirable

  • Experience working in a related role (e.g. market research, market insight).
  • Familiarity with current issues in higher education, particularly related to postgraduate level study and international student recruitment.
  • Familiarity with data management and analysis in common tools such as MS Excel.
  • Experience working with cloud data storage solutions (e.g. Google BigQuery).
  • Familiarity with data exploration and visualisation platforms (e.g. Tableaux, Looker Studio, Flourish).
  • Familiarity crafting visual reports such as presentation decks, infographics, etc.

What do we offer?

  • 25 days annual leave plus shut down at Christmas/New Year and bank holidays
  • Flexible working
  • Company pension scheme
  • Employee assistance programme. (https://www.westfieldhealth.com/)
  • Paid day to volunteer for a charity of your choice as well as charity fund matching
  • Employee referral scheme
