What makes it so great to work at Nielsen? Firstly, it's the people. 1,300 of us from 44 different nationalities working across 11 offices in the UK and Ireland. It's also our clients.

We are keen to recruit a self-starter with market research/data analytics experience and good commercial acumen to work within Media Analytics.

The aim of the team is to understand how individuals act digitally and to see how this affects their behaviours and attitudes through asking and observing. As well as looking to connect Nielsen data sets in order to create compelling stories for our clients.

Our projects vary from understanding customer journeys to creative positioning. E.g:

Reach: We help our clients understand how to effectively target their consumers by understanding online shopper behaviour and aid media owners to capture ad revenue
Resonance: We help our clients evaluate the success of their marketing campaigns, especially digital and TV, and improve future campaigns. Our Digital advertising effectiveness evaluation e.g. incorporates survey, real time and panel analytics data
Reaction: We calculate how consumers react to marketing campaigns: Did online drive offline sales?

Clients include big names from the world of media: Google, Twitter, Mediacom, Sky, Facebook, as well as advertisers: P&G and Mondelez
