S-RM is looking for a Senior Analyst to join the Middle East and North Africa desk within our Business Intelligence division.

Role and Responsibilities

We are seeking candidates who have:

  • Fluency in Arabic or Farsi (reading and speaking);
  • 2 years’ experience in business intelligence or a complementary sector, such as management consultancy, legal or government research.

Candidates should be able to demonstrate:

Experienced analysts often travel to their regions with their teams to work on investigations and to develop S-RM’s contact network.

There are opportunities for dynamic, talented analysts with strong leadership and organisational skills to progress rapidly within our growing Business Intelligence division. We provide a mixture of internal and external training for senior analysts to assist with their development, in addition to mentoring and ongoing support for their careers.
