Market Researcher - German speaking
£15,000 - £17,000 Aldershot
Our client requires candidates who are fluent speaking/writing in German. If you are fluent then this is an excellent opportunity to pursue a Market Research career. This role involves making calls in to the German market.
This is a very friendly office environment to work in with opportunities to progress in to more senior positions. The client is looking for a candidate with a positive outlook who would enjoy calling clients to gather information on their business.
To gather information on companies and contacts and the technology in use within the companies.
Extraction of information from published materials - e.g. web sites; Annual Reports; press articles
Telephone conversations - each call has the objective of gaining the answer to a specific question - it may be contact-related or aimed at gathering information on the size of an organisation or to identify companies using a specific technology
This is the most straightforward element of the role of Researcher and is the initial focus in terms of training.
Contacts that are on the client's database must be checked in detail before clients can use the information.
In many instances, we do not know who fulfills a specific role within a company; it might be that we do not know who is the Human Resources Director or the IT Director - in that case, we telephone the company and ask for this information.
All information that is gathered is updated into the database using our web-based applications.
Whenever possible, we use published material for this task since it is easier and quicker and the source is reliable.
Where that is not possible, we will telephone in order to gather that information.
Training is provided in this company research process once a Researcher has shown progress in achieving competence in Contact Checking and Contact Discovery.
Quality is paramount
Our reputation is that we deliver the highest quality - that reputation has been hard won but can easily be lost if we don’t focus on quality at all times
We have a strategy to promote from within - we recruit at Researcher level only and enable those with the drive, capability and commitment to progress into the other roles.
SENIOR RESEARCHER/TEAM LEADER
All of our team joined us initially in a research role - other career progression opportunities include joining the Data Integration and Data Quality teams or progressing into Marketing (we have sponsored 2 of our team to gain formal marketing qualifications and will consider other such initiatives) and, perhaps, technical support.
