Data Analyst

We’re always looking for new data analysts.  If you’re familiar with the inner-workings of some of our more typical modelling techniques, then there’s a good chance you’ll be right for the BTD team.  We use Stata to process our data, so experience using Stata is a bonus.

Some of the analytical tools we use, include:

  • Gap Analysis
  • Conjoint Analysis
  • Regression Analysis
  • Factor Analysis

Research Interns

As a Research Intern it will be your responsibility to provide support to our in-house economists & analysts, reporting directly to the Head of Research.

Confidence, stamina and self-belief are a must, as the work involves speaking to a wide variety of people, both in person for site visits & over the phone.  Site visits on occasion will be carried out incognito, so be sure to bring your trench coat!

The Internship will be a paid placement, which can be used against any mandatory internship required by your University, if you’re in fact a current undergraduate within the GCC.  Being a student is not a must, but being young, bold and ambitious is.  Email us to find out exactly what we will pay for the 8 to 12-week paid internship.

Research Interns may be assigned to work in one or more of the following areas of research & analysis:

  1.   Collecting data for bridge the data’s Iran & Egypt reports. Data collected will be data on the cost of living in each of the respective reports, which includes data pertaining to accommodation, healthcare, education, business set-up, travel costs and more.
  2.   Collecting and following up with survey responses.
  3.   Calculating means, medians, modes, standard deviations and other wonderful stuff, is all part of the job.  So bring your calculator and come with a good grasp of arithmetic.  The formula to success is to understand the formulae behind it!
