INSIGHTS ANALYST

Full-time, Auckland

Curious about the who, what and why of Sport & Entertainment?

Want to help our clients answer their questions around how they can use Sport or Entertainment in a more effective way?

Are you someone who can reach beyond the numbers and have a hypothesis about the “why”?

Do you thrive on variety, new challenges and working at a pace?

 

Who’s Gemba

 

As the authority in Sport & Entertainment, Gemba connects brands with fans through the power of passion, and assists rights holders to maximise their potential. We’re working with well-known companies on their sponsorship campaigns… ANZ, Cadbury, Coca-Cola, Fonterra, Vodafone and SKYCITY. Plus we help organisations like NZ Rugby, Wellington Phoenix, Sport New Zealand, Paralympics NZ, NZ International Film Festival, Queenstown Winter Festival and Creative New Zealand understand and develop their commercial capability.

 

A little about the role

 

This is a terrific opportunity for a smart and inquisitive analyst to not only direct our New Zealand insights offer, but be part of a wider global team that manages the best sport and entertainment insights programme in the world, which now spans eighteen countries.

 

Working from our Auckland office, you’ll bring a dynamic approach and a reassuring discipline to all you do, plus you’ll revel in working with a tight and empathetic team that achieves remarkable results. Passion for sport and entertainment is one of the key metrics of our research study, and you’ll be encouraged to explore your enthusiasm for any of these activities by attending live events, meeting industry people and watching how fans behave when they are doing what they love the most.  We talk about Going to Gemba, and that means getting out there and immersing yourself in those leisure activities – after all, how can you call yourself the authority if you haven’t been amongst it?!

 

We want to hear your opinions, ideas and career aspirations.  Around here autonomy means leading the way, being proactive and developing new ways of thinking; not being left alone, unsupported and then blamed when the output is different to expectations. We want you to proudly tell your friends about the Gemba culture, but also bring respect and an energy that adds to that ethos and reinforces the positive environment.

 

The non-negotiables:

 

  • A burning passion, a respectful attitude and unashamedly organised
  • Proven analytical skills – ideally with quantitative research studies
  • Significantly above-average use of the word “why?”
  • Personally motivated, accomplished at project management and a reputation for high standards
  • Strong communications skills and a natural ability for developing relationships

How to apply for this job?

 

Written applications including a CV, cover email and details of what you’re personally passionate about in sport or entertainment, should be addressed to Vicki Nikitins, People & Culture Co-ordinator.

 

Applications close Friday 23rd June, but don’t tempt fate and wait to apply until that inauspicious day!
