What You'll Do

You will collaborate with our client teams to effectively execute against project workplans and you'll assist in shaping the final recommendations to our clients.

You'll partner with Persicope team members, client service teams, clients, and suppliers (syndicated, survey) in a positive and constructive manner, focused on the best possible end result. You'll have the opportunity to develop hands-on knowledge and experience with advanced analytic approaches and concepts such as Market/Purchase Structure, Growth Mapping and Segmentation.
