A global law firm with a large, innovative and award winning Library and Research team has an opportunity for an information professional to join their team as a Research Analyst and be based out of London. The focus of the role is around the provision of a research and analysis service covering both legal and business topics and very often with a view to providing actionable insights. The role would suit someone at a similar level already, or someone that is looking to take a slight step up and would benefit from working alongside an extremely bright and supportive team of peers.

  • Supporting with subject and industry research aligned with the firm’s practice and business areas
  • Delivering a tailored and curated current awareness service 
  • Evaluation and continuous improvement relating to the effectiveness of the distribution and value of current awareness to users
  • The provision of training on resources and research methods to stakeholders across the firm
  • Presenting to practice groups, colleagues and other departments on research tools and departmental developments
  • Supporting collection development including new digital resources, websites and printed materials
  • Undertaking small projects as part of a team or on an individual basis

To be a suitable candidate for this Research Analyst role, the following experience and skills are required:

  • Previous experience in a similar Research Analyst, Information Services or Law Library environment
  • Highly developed research skills that cover legal and business topics and utilise a variety of different resources
  • A LIS or related qualification would be extremely beneficial, but is not a pre-requisite 
  • The ability to work in a very collaborative and team orientated working environment
  • Strong relationship building, communication and interpersonal skills
  • Able to organise and manage a workload and respond effectively to conflicting stakeholder priorities
