Research Analyst Automotive at Mintel

Mintel, the world’s leading market intelligence agency, is looking for a consumer-focused analyst to join its Dusseldorf based team. 

The role will involve writing about the Automotive sector including Car Purchasing Process, Electric and Hybrid Cars, In Car Technology and Car Advertising.

Our expert analysts help a wide range of businesses develop the products of tomorrow and give them the necessary edge to compete in an ever-evolving, fast-paced industry. This role will focus exclusively on the Germany market and will focus mainly on writing inspiring content for our digital platform in the form of category specific reports. You will also occasionally deliver presentations to clients on key topics and trends.

The ideal candidate is someone with experience of turning consumer and trend research into bold, actionable insight. This experience could be on the client side or from a research/marketing strategy firm, but you need to be confident with working with data, as well as capable of translating this into engaging content for our clients. 

It’ll be an advantage if you have experience of researching and analysing consumer markets. However, we would also consider candidates who don’t have direct experience of these markets but who can show good background knowledge of the subject. 


What we offer:

  • Flexible work hours (start between 7am and 11am), hybrid working, finish early on fridays, work from alternative location for a few weeks per year
  • 30 days annual leave + 2 charity days + birthday off
  • Company pension scheme
  • Budget for home office equipment
  • 10 personal coaching sessions per year
  • A group of inspiring, fun, social and hard-working professionals
  • Security of an established international company but with a start-up atmosphere in the growing German office (personal responsibility, autonomous work and freedom for initiative)
  • International and diverse culture with our HQ in the heart of the City of London

 What you'll do:

  • Write insightful content about industry issues and trends that impact company strategy, brand development, innovation and consumer behaviour. You will be using a wide range of research tools, including primary and secondary sources alongside quantitative and qualitative consumer research to create content to a monthly publishing schedule. This is the main task of the role and you may spend up to 90% of your time writing reports
  • Identify objectives for consumer research and develop quantitative consumer surveys to meet those objectives
  • Inspire and inform our clients with presentations, webinars, and at conferences and trade shows. You will be expected to manage project requests and deliver on time to meet clients’ business objectives. Deliverables will primarily involve on-site or webex presentations. This will initially be a small element of the role but will become more prominent with seniority
  • Support our commercial team in client pitches
  • Support our PR and marketing teams to help promote Mintel's expertise as you develop your expertise
  • Contribute to brainstorming meetings and help support other teams across the business. Analysts have regular contact with a wide range of colleagues in other areas of the company
  • Help coach and mentor other team members


What you'll bring:

  • 3 years+ experience working with consumer research and trends
  • Excellent writing and presenting skills
  • Strong analytical skills
  • Ability to think quickly and creatively
  • Ability to work independently
  • Flexibility to travel when necessary
  • Fluency in German and good level of English
  • A real passion for understanding the trends that shape people’s behaviour
