About us:

Our Brand Business:

Our Creative Business:


As a beginner in the analytical world, starting with simple tasks in the design and execution of international market research projects, you will receive comprehensive training, and will become a real expert in about 1 year. This includes:

  • Understanding clients' business needs, their strategy, local market culture
  • Research design and planning, preparation of surveys based on client's requirements
  • Briefing suppliers on project requirements for data processing, communication with stakeholders
  • Working with other Kantar teams, coordinating processes, troubleshooting, and finding solutions
  • Interpretation of survey results, delivery of key findings in presentation, providing recommendations for optimization of advertisements and brand strategy based on research results
  • Actively working with key GRC experts on continuous process improvements and development

As an experienced analyst, you will also join the introduction trainings to see Kantar culture and understand the specifics of projects run by GRC and learn more about Kantar IP tools and analytical frameworks. After this, apart from working on live projects, you will be actively involved in the process development and will be mentoring less experienced colleagues and enhancing their analytical skills.


We welcome fresh graduates who share our keen interest in advertising and brand performance. We have a very good and effective training program, a robust knowledge base, and a supporting network of specialists always ready to help you, and we will provide you with all necessary trainings.We are looking for candidates with:

  • Prioritization skills and attention to detail, able to multi-task and get the job done
  • Comfortable with ambiguity, innovation, and change, striving for continuous improvement
  • Open-mindedness and cultural sensitivity in a multicultural environment

If tables and graphs make you panic and you are not comfortable with changes, it is probably not the right role for you.

  • A wide range of global projects we work on with the world's largest brands
  • Energized, open-minded, diverse, and multicultural team in Prague (from 30+ countries)
  • Dynamic career path, very solid training, quick professional growth and development

  • Solid salary that is regularly reviewed based on your performance, additional competitive social benefits (for example, meal vouchers), the flexibility of work, and guaranteed recognition of your efforts
