Research Analyst - Telecoms Team

We are looking to hire a recent graduate to join our expanding telecoms team, which focuses on analysing UK mobile and fixed network operators, such as BT and EE, and looks at answering key strategic telecoms questions such as how the UK’s rapidly increasing internet usage will be provided for in the future. Recent reports have looked at subjects like the continuing development of high speed broadband in the UK and the prospects for the UK telecoms market if BT is allowed to buy EE. 

Role and responsibilities

  • Assist in writing regular reports for subscribers and contribute to consultancy projects  
  • Maintain and analyse data from a wide range of sources to produce models and forecasts
  • Help develop our capacity to produce analysis on new areas and strategic questions 
  • Assess the impact of wider demographic, social, commercial and regulatory changes
  • Present to a range of organisations including telecoms companies and financial institutions 
  • A qualified candidate could expect to earn £21k-26k depending on experience



  • Strong analytical and research abilities, including the ability to identify and write about issues that will interest our subscribers with a focus on the commercial impact for firms affected
  • A strong proficiency in handling data and using Excel, as well as good mathematical ability
  • Ability to write in a clear and engaging manner, argue compellingly and present data intelligently
  • Ability to work quickly, since many of the subjects we write on are highly time-sensitive
  • Interest in understanding both the consumer and business sides of telecoms markets

  • Extensive knowledge of the UK telecoms market is less necessary than interest in the area, together with the abilities to learn quickly, research a subject autonomously and write incisively
