We’re looking for someone who’s diligent and meticulous in their work and who’s looking to gain experience at the heart of an exciting, high-growth company. You’ll love this role if you’re a smart, analytical, driven and organised problem solver, who thrives on getting stuck into tasks and gets a real sense of achievement from finishing each one. Through this, you’ll gain invaluable insight into the inner workings of a young, high growth company. It’s perfect if you’re interested in exploring a career in a data-related role or in a startup more generally.
We are the leading source of market intelligence on ambitious and high-growth businesses in the UK. These companies are changing the shape of the UK economy – driving innovation, new technologies, and jobs growth. This means that everyone wants to be involved with them – from professional service firms looking to advise them, funders wanting to invest in them, through to the government seeking to better understand and support them. The problem is that – aside from Beauhurst – there just isn’t any good data on these businesses.
The Beauhurst platform is the only way to understand the whole UK high-growth ecosystem. It allows our clients to discover companies through best-in-class search functionality; to track them with customisable alerts; and to fully understand them and the surrounding high-growth ecosystem with a suite of stats. All of which is why we have such a wide range of high-profile clients, including KPMG, Facebook, London Stock Exchange Group, HM Treasury, and Barclays.
As you’d expect, our people have a wide range of skills. In our client facing teams we have Marketers, Salespeople, Account Managers and Research Consultants, who get our product and services in front of everyone who should know about it; and make sure our subscribers get the best possible service. And then we have our Product, Development, and Data teams, who constantly drive our data and our product forward.
We’re offering a fantastic opportunity to join us as an intern and to help us reclassify the companies we track. This will be enormously valuable to the entire company as it will allow us to give a more accurate and insightful picture of the whole high-growth ecosystem, as well as helping our clients to more quickly find the businesses that are relevant to them.
During this you’ll learn about the UK’s most ambitious companies and the ecosystem that supports them – all while working with a small, friendly team in the centre of Nottingham.
You’ll be entrusted with populating Beauhurst with high quality data for clients in finance, government and academia to name a few. These clients use our data to gain insights about the most transformative elements of the UK’s economy and make important decisions such as:
- Which investors to approach and companies to fund
- What world-beating technologies should the UK develop
- What companies to partner with and research new innovations
Skills & experience
You’ll have or be working towards a degree in any subject – our team have a wide range of backgrounds and you don’t need expertise in finance or business, as we’ll teach you everything you need to know. We want candidates who:
- Learn quickly and can make educated judgement calls based on data
- Have the ability to pay strong attention to detail
(This is not a data science role, so coding experience is not needed.)
Duration: 4 months, immediate start
This is a paid internship with an initial wage of £300 p/w, which would increase if you were to become a permanent member of the team.
In addition to that we will support you with training and mentoring while you’re here. We offer flexible working and you’ll also be welcome to partake of all our perks, not least the Friday beer and soft drink fridge and regular company events at our beautiful Castle Gate office.
That all sound up your street? Then we’d love to hear from you!
To apply, please submit your CV along with a cover letter telling us why you want this role and why you'd be great at it.
Please note that applications with no cover letter or a generic cover letter will be automatically rejected.
