Jack Duckett

Senior Consumer Lifestyles Analyst
London

Best Part of the Job

What I love most about my job is the variety of subjects I get to explore, meaning that every day is different and it doesn’t ever get too repetitive.




Working at Mintel

The best thing about working at Mintel again comes down to variety, with the agile seating plan allowing you to sit with new people, and feel part of a wider team. There is also a great sense of collaboration and I am able to glean inspiration from some great people from all around the world!




Things I've learnt

Moving into commercial research from an arts background has meant that that working at Mintel has been a constant learning process. My job has allowed me to develop an array of analysis skills, including helping me learn how to use analytics tools, whilst the opportunity to give presentations and speak to clients has helped me to develop many softer skills as well.




Ruyi Xu

Head of Research
North Asia Reports

Best Part of the Job

I oversee all the China reports prepared by the Shanghai team here and my favourite part of the job is studying the China market with my analysts. China is such a dynamic and multi-facet market which makes it more exciting than any other market in the world.




Working at Mintel

The fun atmosphere. Many people think our analysts are sitting in front of desks and typing reports all day, but that’s not true. We go out in the market, talk to experts, try different products, and experience shopping.




Things I've learnt

From a career point of view, it would be my development from being a report writer to a regional department head. And the fact that this happened in my second year with Mintel really shows the unlimited career development opportunities at the company. On a personal level, I would say it’s great to work with so many talented and inspiring people that you can continuously learn from – that’s the most important thing to staying competitive anywhere.

Lee Ann Thevenet

Country Manager
China

Best Part of the Job

My favourite part of my job is being able to work with clients from across many diverse industries, types of businesses and functions. From working with small-medium enterprises and start-ups to big global multi-national companies, from collaborating with marketers and innovation teams to technical, research and development folks - every day and every meeting I learn something new.




Working at Mintel

My favourite part of working at Mintel is the entrepreneurial culture of the team and being a part of the dynamic growth of the business. The team in our region has tripled since I began working in Mintel and being able to witness and be a part of that growth and success is extremely fulfilling.




Things I've learnt

Mintel has given me numerous opportunities to get involved in all aspects of the growing business in Asia Pacific. Every year my role in Mintel has morphed in some way to suit and match the direction in which the business is developing and that has given me invaluable experience and learnings both personally and professionally.
