About Job

Position Description

The position of Research Analyst Coordinator plays a critical role in developing content for corporate meetings. Reporting to senior product leaders, this position is responsible for researching and proposing topics for agendas as well as vetting and securing speakers, assisting in the production of support collateral and maintaining records related to the execution of agendas.

Ideal candidates know how to take complex content briefs and distill them into progressive and enticing live conversations for a business audience. You will be responsible for liaising with producers, client managers, member analytics teams and external partners to create forward-looking reports and recommendations to keep members ahead of industry trends that will impact their businesses. If you’re looking for a role that requires using well-developed muscles like sound judgment, trend-spotting, having influence and interacting with other brilliant minds—but couldn’t figure out what career would allow you to do that—we’re looking for you.

We hire for insatiable curiosity. We’re looking for someone who’s used to deeply researching a broad array of topics to find a compelling narrative in a sea of unstructured information. Global and local, analog and technology, business and human interest, and economic and scientific stories all pique your interest. You’re the kind of person who reads The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, South China Morning Post and Financial Times in equal measure. You are more interested in proximity to some of the most interesting content in the world than in the byline (which you will not receive).

The ideal individual will have strong business curiosity (along with growing business acumen), and a demonstrated record of learning and conveying a variety of topics, the ability to infuse creativity and practice a highly organized workflow to assist in the design and execution of corporate meetings.
