From psychologists to journalists to behavioural economists, our team don’t fit in a box – what unites them is a desire to understand people. We’re looking for a highly driven content editor, with a passion for social science and experience in journalism, communications and research to lead client projects.

More gonzo than academic, our work is about investigating the hidden insights in everyday life. The research is incredibly varied. One day you might be interviewing a scientist about the psychology of boredom, the next you might be researching why teenagers wear make-up.

As part of the behavioural analyst team, you’ll be researching cultural, social and technological shifts as well as changes in industry. You’ll need to be street smart and willing to get your hands dirty – analysing culture, uncovering insights, and writing under tight deadlines.

You’ll enjoy learning about the world of consumer trends, and cultural analysis, and have a blend of quantitative and qualitative skills. You’ll need to excel at problem solving, leading projects and teams, have emotional intelligence, and be a superb writer and editor. It’s hard, but stimulating, work – and your effort will be instrumental in helping Canvas8 inspire the world’s best brands, agencies and organisations.

What is my day to day?

Researching consumer trends and cultural shifts Writing engaging reports and delivering concise analysis Leading projects, including all aspects of design and delivery Providing analysis on projects (qual & quant) Uploading content and visual research Presenting new trends and ideas Working across editorial and consultancy Requirements

As an integral part of the behavioural analyst team, you will be responsible for leading reports on consumer trends across different sectors and countries. Maybe you have a background in behavioural science or journalism. Maybe you trained in PR or content marketing. Maybe you’ve done all of the above.

You will be a brilliant writer and editor, comfortable with both quantitative and qualitative research – and a great communicator, on paper and in-person. You’ll be able to unlock powerful insights across different sources, be confident interviewing people, parsing data, be genuinely interested in the world around you, and be capable of telling inspiring stories.

What are we looking for?

A commercial and strategic mindset, with an eye for opportunity Excellent editorial and written skills Ability to distil complexity into plain English Superb desk research skills Ability to generate actionable insights from research Capable across qualitative and quantitive methodologies Well-organised, proactive and self-motivated Strong commercial awareness and culturally attuned Strong understanding of the media, communications and design industries Minimum 4 years experience in a similar role Background in research/behavioural sciences desirable Degree-level education essential Smart, nice and have an open attitude Benefits
