Social Analyst

Harnessing both structured and unstructured data, and addressing themselves to reporting, analysis and social listening, the Social Analyst will, supported by the Social Insights Director and the Analytics Director, seek out key insights and deliver recommendations in order to add meaningful value to our clients and their businesses.  This position is not just about measuring results, but about deriving insight from social performance measurement.
