Our client is a UK market research agency based in the Yorkshire Area. They are currently looking to expand the operational team and recruit a senior DP & data executive to work as part of our data services team.

The role of the senior DP & data executive is a pivotal position within the business and will involve working closely with research teams, other members of the data team and the data operations manager.

Ideally the candidate should have strong experience with data collection platforms and feel at home with handling complex, visually engaging online surveys, as well as being able to develop macros to automate the format, analysis & transfer of data. (Please highlight any software / programme language experience you have in your application)

The senior data executive has a responsibility to contribute to departmental performance (Innovation, technical expertise, efficiency/ automation and quality assurance), as well as building and enhancing relationships within the data department and the wider company.

They are looking for a hardworking, self-starter who can meet the core objectives outlined above but also someone who can strategically look at how we can improve and expand their DATA services.
