Join a trailblazing data company with a focus on the UK's most innovative private companies, serving high-profile clients including venture capital firms, financial institutions, and government bodies. We’re on a thrilling journey to global expansion, offering a unique blend of data tracking, bespoke research, and analysis that fuels disruption and innovation in the business world.

  • Conduct bespoke research projects for public sector clients, analyzing data and writing analytical summaries.
  • Engage with clients to pitch and manage research projects, from inception to successful delivery.
  • Create compelling tenders and showcase our expertise and value proposition in response to bids.
  • Minimum 3 years of relevant experience in research and consultancy.
  • Experience with public sector clients and client-facing roles.
  • Strong analytical skills, with an ability to understand and interpret data.
  • Excellent relationship-building and project management capabilities.

To apply, please send your updated CV and answer a few screening questions. We're seeking individuals who are ready to go beyond the expected, who are data-savvy, have a natural knack for client interaction, and who can drive their own projects with ambition and independence.

Are you fascinated by the economy and how companies create impact on a local and national level? If so, you’ll be the perfect fit for our Research & Consultancy team!

We’ve been producing research on the UK’s business population and the ecosystem that supports them for years. Now we’re expanding our offering to public sector clients.

Quick disclaimer: This is not scientific research or management consultancy, but has elements of both (pretty great right?). You’ll work with clients to pitch them research projects and reports, and you’ll also help manage delivery of the research, analysing Beauhurst’s big dataset and writing analytical summaries.

If this sounds right up your street, read on!
