Marketing Analyst jobs and careers

Expertise in Marketing Analytics is becoming essential to businesses all over the world. It requires an analytical approach to break down customer data and spot insights others might miss. More and more companies are looking for data experts – both agency based and in-house. There is always room for growth and the more knowledgeable you become, the more senior your role will become.

Why consider a career as a Marketing Analyst?

The use of data in marketing is increasing exponentially. Businesses want to tap into the massive amounts of data they have from in-store sales, online performance, conversions, returns, and much more. From this, analysts can work closely with digital and marketing teams to make commercial recommendations that can increase sales and profit.

A career as a Marketing Analyst allows one to apply their data analysis skills to real-world, commercial scenarios. Retail, eCommerce are the industries with the largest insight & analytics teams.

You’ll constantly have an eye out for new tools that become available and could be useful for your business or client. This includes tools to gather data as well as those used to filter, analyze, evaluate and visualise.
