NSR Analyst

NSR Analysts are responsible for the end-to-end production of market research studies on specific subjects within the satellite market and for the undertaking of contracted consulting projects for a global client base.

Finally, an Analyst must have the required mix of independence that allows them to tackle a large range of projects, while at the same time be a consummate team player who is proactive in working with colleagues.

The Analyst position will provide coverage for many areas in the satellite market covered by NSR. NSR is very flexible in terms of working hours and location.
