About: Canvas8 is the UK’s leading behavioural insights practice. We explore the intersection between human sciences, industry and popular culture to understand how people's behaviour is changing, and the impacts of these shifts.

We’re seeking a motivated and engaged individual to join our team of multidisciplinary writers and researchers, working closely with our in-house analysts to develop your research skills, hone your writing style and sharpen your ability to analyse information and extract inspiring trends.

Our work is about investigating hidden insights in everyday life, so the research is incredibly varied. Coming to the same office five days a week doesn’t equate to a routine – one day you could be reading over a document about the psychology of boredom, the next you might be analysing research on our Library to support our team in writing an authoritative analysis of the latest trends in robotics. It’s stimulating, and your work will support Canvas8 in inspiring the world’s best brands, agencies and organisations.

Day to Day:

  • Researching consumer trends, compiling industry data and analysis
  • Writing engaging and analytical signals, case studies and reports
  • Presenting trends and ideas in meetings
  • Face-to-face and phone-based investigations and interviews

About You:

You’ll be expected to get hands-on from the start. You’ll be researching cultural, social and technological shifts as well as changes in industry. We’ll help you learn how to spot patterns across multiple industries and turn those patterns into commercial insights.

A passion for behavioural sciences – or a curiosity about them – is integral. You’ll need highly tuned emotional intelligence, an appetite to understand foreign cultures and an ability to distil complex ideas and jargon into clear, lively language for an international audience.

Ultimately, everybody we work with is both smart and kind, and we’re looking for more of the same. We’re a tight-knit team, and we’re seeking somebody who can not just offer consistency and efficiency, but become part of our family. As this is for our April intake, we need you to be available to join us in April.

What do we need?

  • Degree-level education
  • A lateral thinker
  • A culture vulture - what's your passion?
  • A genuine interest in behavioural sciences
  • Exceptional desk research skills
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • A lively yet concise writing style, and an eye for a good image
  • Knowledge of, or a desire to learn about, product development and the media and communications industries
  • An understanding of the media and design industries is desirable
  • Smart, kind, inquisitive and willing to get stuck in
  • Ability to work full time between March - May
