The NeuGroup is looking for a research associate/analyst to assist with peer benchmarking and research across our unrivaled network of membership groups for treasury and finance professionals. You will work with group leaders, members and sponsors in preparing high-quality research in support of member projects, group agendas and meeting discussions.
Indicative research topics include changes in the organizational structure of the finance function; the evolving role and responsibilities of treasury leadership; headcount and compensation by area of responsibility; talent management and training programs; performance metrics; major treasury and finance systems deployed; technology implementation and support best practices; key banking partners and relationship metrics; best practice for bond issuance; share buyback execution; functional currency of liquidity, payments and collections infrastructure.
We seek continual improvement in our research and benchmarking processes, so this is a great role for someone who can problem solve, develop new approaches on their own and adapt quickly with the team. This role requires someone who can:
- create and execute web and phone surveys;
- develop and maintain question libraries;
- manage data in databases and analyze in Excel;
- prepare reports in Word and presentation decks in PowerPoint;
- summarize results in written form, charts, graphs and data tables;
- contribute web posts, graphics and articles containing research highlights and trends; plus,
- manage project timelines with internal team and clients.
Familiarity with online survey tools (SurveyGizmo), Salesforce, Asana and a Web Community/CMS (Drupal) platform is a major plus. The role also needs someone who possess professional communication skills, personality and creativity to promote engagement, along with excellent writing skills and attention to detail.
The job can be part- to full-time with flexible scheduling and there is the opportunity to work remotely. Travel to meetings to interact with clients is a possibility, but not required. You will report to one of our senior directors in charge of peer research and support them with the above and related research surrounding clients’ key projects and priority topics for benchmarking.
To be a fit for this job, you should have at least 2 years’ experience in a relevant research role. Salary will be commensurate with experience.
