(Junior) Market Researcher| Data analyst

People, Leadership & Culture – Amsterdam

What are you going to do as market researcher?

As a (junior) market researcher, you will work on a variety of Marketing and HR research studies, both qualitative and quantitative research. For marketing, you can think of research into target groups, brand awareness & campaigns, and customer satisfaction. For employers, it is super important to retrieve the ‘Voice of the Employee’ and thus gain insight into the factors that employees value, or find room for improvement.

"During my studies, I researched psychological empowerment and how it could reduce the negative effects of overwork. I'm very excited about these kind of subjects. That's why I really enjoy working here, at the interface of HR and data."
