Clients are at the core of the role of our Client Insight Partners. The goal is to turn every client relationship into a long-term partnership by delivering an industry-leading experience for our clients.

As a Client Insight Partner, you represent Nielsen IQ at the client. How the client views you, likely determines how they view Nielsen IQ as a whole.

  • Ensure that the Analytic Delivery team has clarity on the brief, is aware of client-specific considerations, and align on approach.
  • Depending on the size of the brief, have check-ins throughout the project to ensure the project is on track and feed in relevant additional knowledge or expertise.
  • Once final output signed off, lead delivery/presentation of the work to the client.
  • Add Value to the work – bringing in relevant context or industry expertise, sharing thoughts and opinions with the client as appropriate, discuss next steps.
  • Tailor and deliver relevant thought leadership to your client in order to give them wider context, challenge their thinking and bring them external perspective.
  • Contribute to internal thought leadership and Industry Context creation.

  • Identify opportunities for relevant additional Nielsen IQ solutions at the client
  • Manage a team of Client Insight Partners & drive progress and change within this team
