​Marketing Analyst

The responsibilities in marketing analyst jobs vary depending on the needs of an employer or client, however they generally fall into four main categories:

Research

Your research will be used to inform the business decisions your employer or client takes. Providing them with sound, reliable information requires a comprehensive research strategy that ensures timely and thorough market research is carried out.

This might include preparing surveys, conducting interviews and sourcing historical and current market statistics, as well as conducting assessments of any competitors and influential consumer trends, to develop a comprehensive insight into the opportunities and challenges within a given market.

Collaboration

Your research into a market and the opportunities or challenges it presents will be informed by your independent research as well as the input of internal or external parties, either because they will influence your findings and subsequent recommendations, or be affected by them.

Often, that includes personnel in marketing, finance, production and distribution and you will need to be able to communicate effectively in person or in writing, with them.

Analysis

You must be able to interpret and analyse large volumes of information from various sources which must be assessed, in accordance with your considerations of competitor behaviour and any fluctuating economic and consumer trends, to identify business opportunities, calculate risks, accurately forecast ROI and make recommendations about the steps, costs and time needed to achieve them.

Reporting

Your findings and any recommendations you make will need to be presented, often in person and in print in concise, clear and visually engaging ways.

Salary Range

Depending on the work location, your experience and levels of responsibility, the average salary for marketing analyst jobs ranges from £18k to £38k+, but may also include the potential to earn performance related bonuses.

Skills & Qualifications

When recruiting for these roles, employers are typically looking for very specific skills.  When you’re applying for marketing analyst jobs, you should prioritise these on your CV:

  • Excellent organisation and time management

  • Objective, logical and methodical approach to capturing data

  • Critical and detailed attention to the analysis of data

  • Interpretation of data from a variety of sources

  • Excellent interpersonal skills

  • Creative thinking

  • Problem solving

  • Report writing

  • Strong IT skills are essential for managing, analysing and maintaining the integrity of data, particularly in programmes such as Excel, Access, SQL, SAP and Qlickview

  • Excellent presentation skills

  • Flexibility to travel for work

Qualifications

There are no formal qualifications required for this role so a potential employer will be looking for experience or the relevant skills that can easily be transferred from another profession.

Experience & Career Progression

If you’re a business, marketing, mathematics, economics, sociology or IT graduate then your academic research, analysis and reporting skills are ideal for many entry-level marketing analyst jobs.

If you’re planning on moving into marketing analytics from a similar profession then being able to demonstrate experience in project management, research and data analysis as well as problem solving, communication and reporting skills will appeal to a potential employer.

​Merseyside is a county in the North West of England. It is comprised of Knowsley, St Helens, Sefton, Wirral and Liverpool. Merseyside is so named after the river Mersey, which runs through the county. Merseyside boasts excellent transport links across the North and beyond, with regular train travel to London and an international airport. Merseyside also boasts one of the largest collections of listed buildings in the world, with the Docks and historic Waterfront in Liverpool, and the model town of Port Sunlight on the Wirral.

It’s a relatively new county, having only come into existence in 1974.It was previously part of Lancashire and Cheshire, two pre-existing neighbouring counties. Liverpool is the major city within Merseyside; known as a vibrant cultural centre in the UK. Home to many art galleries and museums, Aintree racecourse, two rival football teams and of course, The Beatles. Liverpool is renowned to be a city with a thriving creative and sporting culture that is as diverse as it is passionate.

Outside the city and across the river lies the Wirral Peninsula – an area filled with typically British seaside towns and promenades thanks to being almost entirely surrounded by water. Merseyside is also blessed with beaches to the north, encapsulating both Crosby and Formby. Formby is famed for it’s squirrel reserve, and for *that* beach scene in Peaky Blinders. In fact, much of Peaky Blinders has been filmed in various locations across Merseyside. In recent years it has become a popular film location, particularly in period dramas, and as an alternative to London. The famous Liver building and St George's Hall have been used as sets to represent Gotham in the latest Batman film.
