In addition to primary research we conduct internally, you will also identify secondary research resources to help answer some questions (e.g. report out on trends with the 17-25 year old potential AmeriCorps Member segment). 

You will create PowerPoint presentations and Power BI reports in collaboration with the Insights Manager and present the information to various audiences. You will partner with other departments on cross-functional projects, analyzing internal data to answer key questions quickly and efficiently
