About Us:

Within the multi-culturally diverse neighbourhoods that make up Westminster, a dynamic energy exists.

The work is fast-paced and diverse, and makes a real difference to the people and who live and work here.

There are plenty of opportunities to collaborate and learn. Specialisms within our team range across social research and behavioural insight, geospatial analysis, BI analytics and dashboard construction, econometric analysis and complex modelling. Strong links with local universities ensure that we stay on top of new thinking.

You’ll also need the ability to juggle multiple projects, and prioritise your own work in order to deliver to demanding deadlines.
