Combining the global reach of market research giant, The Nielsen Company, and the out of home market expertise of data and research consultancy CGA, the continued expansion of the Nielsen CGA partnership has brought a host of world-class on premise capabilities to the USA for the first time.

Best in class proprietary datasets, combined with world-leading, on premise consultancy credentials, support Nielsen CGA customers in forging new, differentiated approaches to winning in this valuable channel. Our customers represent a who’s who of major drinks producers, leading retailers and other industry groups.

Nielsen CGA started developing our US business in 2015, and since then it’s grown exponentially – with growth forecast to continue for the next 5 years and beyond as we extend our capabilities in measurement, analytics, data management and consumer research.

The opportunity

To facilitate that growth, we’re growing our teams – and are looking to recruit bright, capable individuals to join our Development team, which plays a vital role in developing and delivering our expanding US product suite. 

We want logical, curious, creative and technically literate individuals – with a desire to learn and grow developing themselves along with our brilliant business.

The successful applicants will have the opportunity to develop their perspective via full project lifecycle involvement, working in a meritocratic culture, where the quality of their contribution rather than length of tenure will dictate the pace of their progression 

Maybe most excitingly - they’ll have the opportunity to make a difference on business critical workstreams from the very start.
