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.

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.

Salary

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