The Position

Within Kantar Futures, the insights team oversees our knowledge base of data, intelligence, and POV’s on important marketplace issues.

Currently, the Streetscapes team is seeking an intern in our New York office to assist with managing the network and supporting the product team with the network’s strategic goals.

Ideal candidates are insightful, strategic thinkers, highly attuned to the world and the people around them. They have a strong academic background, a willingness to take on responsibility, and a keen interest in business and current affairs.
