You’ll deliver must-have research through compelling client interactions, and contribute to our double-digit growth by providing our clients worldwide the unbiased insight they need to make the right decisions on their key initiatives.

About this role:

Are you intellectually curious and motivated by ideas? Do you want to create research products that are widely used by executive leaders worldwide? Gartner is searching for an India-based Specialist to join as a part of the global Peer and Practitioner Research team. This opportunity gives researchers an exposure to the full range of Communications function leadership-level strategic and management topics. The specialist will be responsible for investigating, analyzing and writing on critical issues facing senior Communications executives in leading global corporations. This individual will work on a wide range written deliverables that require (but not limited to) qualitative research methods – interview Communications leaders at leading global corporations, conduct wide-ranging secondary literature searches, and synthesize information to elicit key insights – to help organizations transform the way they operate. The specialist must be intellectually curious and have the desire to quickly develop “generalist” knowledge. The role is a key feeder to careers reaching the highest levels of the firm.

What you will do:

  • Learn and execute Gartner's proven methodology for conducting world-class research that helps identify best practice solutions to many of today's biggest business challenges.
