Kantar Worldpanel graduate jobs
Who we are and what we do
At Kantar Worldpanel our business is consumers and shoppers.
We are the world’s leading provider of continuous, syndicated consumer panels and market research solutions into shoppers’ purchase and usage behavior.
People are both shoppers and consumers – which is why we provide different viewpoints to build a complete picture. By the end of 2011, we’ll have increased our panel size by 20% to an impressive 30,000 UK households. Our panels currently consist of household consumer panels, individual consumer panels and usage panels – all of which give a deep insight into what products are bought and why.
As well as our consumer panels we have an innovative, industry-leading suite of specialist, tailored, high-end research consulting capabilities. Our tools allow us to deliver high definition inspiration on almost every aspect of our clients’ business.
Over 600 clients across the globe trust Kantar Worldpanel to turn the most comprehensive understanding of consumer shopping and usage behavior and attitudes into the most inspiring, actionable insights. Major retailers, manufacturers and city clients know how valuable our knowledge can be – because we’ve already helped hundreds of them to better understand their shoppers’ needs and grow their business.
Kantar Worldpanel’s largest operation is based in the UK, spanning across two offices – Epsom and London – with over 500 employees. We also have offices in Ireland and across the globe.
Food may be the most obvious sector in which consumers spend their money, but that’s just one area of our business. People are spending an ever-increasing share of their income on everything from telecommunications to baby products. We currently provide expert information and inspiring insights on brand strategy, marketing tactics, retail and shopper dynamics and future-proofing to the following sectors:
- Personal care and beauty
