The role

Have you ever wondered how some of the most ambitious and successful companies in the UK (think Deliveroo & Monzo) grow so rapidly? Beauhurst are looking for bright and inquisitive people to help them shine a light on these companies. 

Beauhurst are a market leading tech company that provides data on the fastest growing companies in the UK (think Monzo and Babylon!). Their Data team is vital in ensuring its data is of excellent quality. They're on a mission to track companies that they don’t track (but should), add even more data points on these companies & a whole range of other important projects. To keep up with all of this growth, they need more lovely faces to join their Data team!

What will you be doing?

Day to day, you’re responsibilities will be to:

  • Fact find & research: go on a mission to find what services these companies provide, the products they sell, and who their clients are using company websites, press releases and the public record
  • Writing: turn this research into succinct & snappy company descriptions that help our clients understand them and help them grow into the next big thing. 
  • Classify: put these companies into the right “box” by working out which of the 500 proprietary sectors they operate in (including AI, Augmented reality, Fintech, 3D printing & much more!)
  • Problem solve: apply an inquisitive eye & Beauhurst's in-house methodology to figure out, for example: what stage do you think a company is at? Do you fully trust the accuracy of it’s filings or do you need to correct a probable mistake? Based on the limited information you have, does a deal look more like an investment or a buyout?

Don’t worry! You won't be expected to be an expert on day one. You’ll receive about two-months of thorough training, helping you to understand, create and refine company data. 

While the role doesn’t involve dataset manipulation, cleaning or analysis, you’ll get to learn loads about the most innovative start-ups, top performing established companies and the ecosystem that supports such an integral part of the UK’s economy. The data you create will be used by government bodies, investors and anyone interested in helping the most ambitious companies grow, recruit and innovate.

The exciting bits!

As well as the offered package £350 p/w and an in-depth training programme, Beauhurst want to keep their team happy and healthy. So, as part of this, you’ll also get:

  • Flexible/remote working: they are open to hiring remote workers based across the UK, but they’d love for you to visit their Nottingham/London offices at some point
  • Wellbeing: Access to a range of coaches & counsellors if/when you need it
  • Socials: Drinks in the office, company away days and regular virtual and in-person events
  • Talks: Interesting speakers in the office talking about lots of things!
  • Books: You can order any relevant books you like or come along to their book club evening
  • MacBook: Your own laptop to work from and any equipment you need

Who are they looking for?

This is an entry-level position that will suit someone with a degree. Previous experience is a bonus, but not required.

At the very least, you will need to have/be:

  • A great communicator: You’ll have excellent written communication, including correct use of spelling and grammar.
  • Autonomous: You’re happy to work independently and like figuring stuff out for yourself 
  • Problem-solver & detail orientated: you are a natural problem-solver, meticulous and with a keen eye for detail
  • Friendly: You are enjoy working with people & have a good sense of humour

So, what are the next steps? ✏️

  • Apply via Feisty so your application is sent straight to the employer.
  • Include response to screening questions to follow.
