Job Description


Ovum has an exciting opportunity for a senior analyst in its Wholesale Practice, which is an important differentiator for Ovum.


Wholesale is an important channel to market for many communications service providers (CSPs) around the world. The wholesale channel enables CSPs to win back a proportion of revenues lost to retail competitors, to reach additional markets and customer segments, and to improve their economies of scale by carrying third party traffic. Ovum’s latest forecast shows that wholesale will account for nearly 11% of all CSP service revenues by 2021 – more than telcos will earn from TV, M2M, enterprise cloud and hosted and managed unified communications combined.


In the 15 years that Ovum has been covering the wholesale market, it has transformed from a sleepy backwater in which CSPs reluctantly provided basic transport and capacity services to their competitors, to a proactive and vibrant market characterized by complex partnerships, ecosystems, and innovations.


A Senior Analyst is an emerging expert in their field, who has some client recognition in their topic. A Senior Analyst confidently applies a range of research methods, including but not limited to forecasting, primary research and desk research.


The analyst works closely with Principal Analysts to produce and author thought leading research that makes a demonstrable commercial contribution. In short, a Senior Analyst is considered to be key team player in their practice and is pivotal to delivering its research agenda. We are looking for an effective networker who can regularly interact with clients and become a research collaborator for some of Ovum’s most significant research programmes each year.  


The role:


  • Analyze players in the national and international wholesale telecoms markets around the globe, their strategies, customer segmentation, service portfolios and performance.
  • Research into aspects of wholesale telecoms including emerging services, emerging business models, organizational structures and customer interaction strategies.
  • Review region specific market conditions which contribute to growth of wholesale telecoms there.
  • Write insightful and actionable reports and analyses of the wholesale market.
  • Support quantitative analysis of the wholesale market, including forecasts and market shares, with the objective of taking over responsibility for some of these regular analyses in future.
  • Lead surveys of aspects of the wholesale market to gain insight into wholesale customers’ needs and views, and of wholesale providers’ abilities to satisfy those needs.
  • Identify new wholesale research topics and to work collaboratively with other Ovum teams.
  • Work with colleagues in other Ovum research and consulting teams to help qualify and respond to customer requests for bespoke engagements and consulting projects, and to work on resulting projects.
  • Support and ultimately take over responsibility for the wholesale market forecasts.



Rated as one of the top 5 large companies to work for in the UK, we offer world class career development, competitive salaries, as well as an award winning benefits package.
