Researcher, WARC Plus

We are seeking an intelligent, self-motivated individual with a strong background in the marketing or consumer insights business to work on an ad hoc, freelance basis supporting WARC Plus, a desk research service available to warc.com clients.

The aim of the WARC Plus service is to respond to the research queries and needs of warc.com clients. It's designed to support our time-poor clients who are either too busy to search warc.com for themselves, or who need or want to defer to our experience and expertise in finding the best content on warc.com for them.

As a WARC Plus researcher, you would be responsible for answering clients' enquiries by using warc.com as your primary resource.

Key responsibilities

  • You will be required to interpret a brief and search and identify the most relevant content – any case studies, articles, research papers and data on warc.com – that answer that brief.
  • You will be required to highlight and summarise the data/insights that emerge from researching the brief and presenting them in an easy-to-read, concise and punchy written style.

Main requirements

  • Excellent knowledge of the advertising and marcomms industry, from a global perspective.
  • An ability to work independently from home to produce high-calibre, client-facing materials.
  • Must be available to work on an ad-hoc basis and to tight deadlines (we turn around responses within 24 hours).
  • Excellent writing skills.
  • Sound IT skills, ideally with a knowledge of basic HTML and access to a Windows-based PC or laptop.
  • Prior experience of using warc.com would be a distinct advantage, although training and guidance will be provided.


A flat fee per research brief answered (akin to 2-3 hours' work depending on the complexity of the request).
