Working within the marketing team, you will take ownership of and develop the rebrand we unveiled in 2021. Amongst other things, you will work with our commercial and research teams to improve slide decks; with our advisory team to improve our client and public reports, with our HR team to better demonstrate our team-spirited company culture, and with our marketing and events teams on striking marketing materials that engage crowds.
