Kantar is home to some of the world's leading research, data and insights brands. Individually, brands such as Kantar Millward Brown, Kantar TNS, Kantar Media, Kantar Worldpanel, Kantar Added Value and Kantar Futures are famous and highly respected experts in their fields.

What we do
Our offer covers the breadth of techniques and technologies, from purchase and media data to predicting long term trends; from neuroscience to exit polls; from large scale quantitative studies to qualitative research, incorporating ethnography and semiotics.
Our strength lies in the unrivalled diversity of our people, methodologies, specialisms and points of view that seamlessly fuse to give us a unique and complete understanding of people, across the world.
We go beyond the obvious – with intelligence, passion and creativity – to discover new directions, set strategies and plan actions that inspire extraordinary success.
Who we’re looking for
Our 30,000-strong global workforce is drawn from a really broad range of educational backgrounds. Yes, of course we need people with some immediate knowledge of data and data analytics, but we don’t just employ number-crunchers and statisticians. We’re also looking for career starters with business and analytical skills, language and writing skills, people skills, or any combination of these. We need folk with an interest in developing management skills. And we’re looking for future experts across a wide array of technical and IT skills too.
We are part of marketing services leader WPP, a huge and diverse organisation which has an increasing need for our input and with whom we are becoming ever more closely involved – creating a wealth of cross-company career opportunities.
Our client list is second to none, including over half of the Fortune 500 Top Companies, and our business is global to match their needs. This also means that as well as covering the entire spectrum of insight techniques and disciplines, we know better than anyone else how to connect them in bespoke ways for the benefit of clients. And our open attitude to collaboration means we’re partnering more and more often with the likes of Twitter and Google – as well as technical specialists – to develop integrated solutions.
As employers, we encourage mobility, allowing our people to follow their interests and the learning opportunities that come with them. Culturally too, we consider ourselves more individualistic and less centrist than many of our competitors. Our exposure to, and connections with, WPP and its marketing services specialists give us a more outward-looking, customer-oriented focus than our rivals.
