Senior Analyst — Market Forecasting and Quantitative Research

Salary: competitive

Location: United Kingdom

CCS Insight, a global analyst company focussing on technology, is looking for an analyst to join its team in this exciting cross-area role in market forecasting and quantitative research.

The main scope of the job is to support the company's extensive market forecasting in several technology areas, some established and some nascent. Examples include mobile phones, smart wearables, virtual and augmented reality, telecom services, 5G networks and more. In addition, the job includes responsibility for some quarterly and monthly reports, and support of consumer research projects.

You will be working with market models and data trackers, so a confident approach to all aspects of the analysis, understanding, modelling and presenting of data is essential to this role. Almost as important is your ability to turn qualitative information into quantitative assumptions and conclusions, and to present a quantitative forecast as a logical story about how a market will develop.

You will collaborate very closely with Marina Koytcheva, our vice president of forecasting, but when working on any specific forecast or project you will be cooperating with other colleagues who are experts on the subject. This will give you an opportunity to work with practically everyone in our team of highly respected analysts.

You will work with some of the most innovative and important agenda-setting technology companies in the world and will influence their thinking about the future of the market.

You will be responsible for the following duties:

  • Maintain and update market forecasts, including modelling, creation of client material and presenting forecasts to clients. This part of the job is expected to take 50 percent to 70 percent of your time.
  • Deliver quarterly reports on the mobile phone market, including analysis of the quarterly results of global smartphone makers.
  • Maintain monthly analysis of mobile phone pricing.
  • Participate in consumer research, including survey creation, data analysis and report writing.
  • Occasional support of other projects, especially related to quantitative research, and new areas as the industry evolves.

The ideal candidate will have the following skills and experience:

  • Outstanding analytical and quantitative skills, demonstrated by at least three years' experience in a similar role or another highly numerical and analytical role.
  • Strong ability to research many and variously structured sources of information, to assess them critically for their quality and to extract useful data from them.
  • Well-developed ability to work with large and imperfect sets of data that need critical thinking and logical assumptions to draw conclusions.
  • Ability to create models in Excel.
  • Ability to spot trends and cause-and-effect relationships.
  • Ability to see the big picture and develop long-term thinking.
  • Basic understanding of standard quarterly financial reporting of public companies.
  • Very solid Excel skills and good PowerPoint skills are essential.
  • Ability to write short articles and reports that present principal findings from quantitative research as interesting and easy-to-read stories targeted at a wide range of clients.

To succeed in this role, you will need the following personal skills:

  • Ability to form close working relationships with colleagues and clients.
  • Ability to advance a process with multiple participants.
  • Proficiency and confidence to present your work to clients, including at very senior level.
  • Excellent time management and the ability to meet deadlines.
  • Solid attention to detail.
  • Curiosity about the future of technology markets. Experience in the technology industry is a plus, but is not required.
  • Flexible mindset to approach new areas of research and to adjust to a fast-paced industry.
  • Ability to work independently at home and in our office in London at least two days per week.

The successful candidate should have the right to work in the UK, have international mobility and be based within commuting distance of London.
