We are Canvas8, a fast-growing team of thinkers, strategists, analysts – and a dog called Oscar. We’re looking for a smart, motivated and creative analyst to join our team.

After launching five years ago, Canvas8 has grown into a leading behavioural insights practice. Our award-winning insights, delivered through membership to our digital library and bespoke projects, have inspired new product development, television shows and global advertising campaigns for clients including Channel 4, Dove, Nike, Publicis and Samsung.

Suited to those passionate about working at the intersection of behavioural and social sciences, business and creativity, you will be instrumental in helping Canvas8 fulfill its mission of inspiring the world’s best brands and creative agencies through better insights. Every day we work with brilliant minds including TED speakers, MIT professors, published authors and industry experts. If the chance of working with them – and us – excites you, we want to meet you.

About you

You’ll be expected to get hands-on. As part of the behavioural analyst team, you’ll be researching cultural, social and technological shifts as well as changes in industry. You’ll be a lateral thinker with an eye for spotting patterns across multiple industries and an ability to distil complex ideas and jargon into clear, lively language for an international audience.

Articulate and confident, you will have engaging written skills and a broad grasp of research processes.

You’ll have entrepreneurial flair, resourcefulness and initiative. We are a dynamic, creative and ambitious organisation, and as we grow, we’re looking for someone to become a central part of our analyst team. Are you that person?

(Dog lovers and tea drinkers are especially welcome.)
