Mission: Inspiring successful decisions
Kantar Worldpanel is the world leader in consumer knowledge and insights based on continuous consumer panels. Combining market monitoring, advanced analytics and tailored market research solutions we deliver both the big picture and the fine detail that inspire successful actions by our clients. Our expertise about what people buy or use – and why – has become the market currency for brand owners, retailers, market analysts and government organisations internationally.
We are increasingly recognised as a company that prioritises its people, focussing on successful careers and workplace cultures (recognised as an employer of choice in the UK, Ireland, France, Spain, Mexico, Brazil and Greater China). Just as our clients are at the centre of everything we do, our people are the foundation and we have the same levels of passion and commitment to them and their careers with us.
With over 60 years’ experience, a team of 3,500, and services covering 60 countries directly or through partners, we deliver insights across fields as diverse as FMCG, impulse products, fashion, baby, telecommunications and entertainment, among many others.
Kantar Worldpanel is part of the Kantar Group, one of the world's largest insight, information and consultancy networks. The Kantar Group is the data investment management division of WPP.
We believe that it’s not just what you do, but the way that you do it that’s important.
That’s why we have ten core behaviours which guide the way we work with our clients and each other. We reward our team members who are demonstrating the behaviours at our SPARK awards – with recent winners taking home an iPad, a hotel stay for two, and shopping vouchers worth up to £350.

I have been working at Kantar Worldpanel full-time
Very young, up-to-date company with enthusiastic staff who are testament to the company's policy of putting its employees first. People are friendly and welcoming to new starters and always there to share ideas and ask questions. Even senior managing staff are approachable. Offices are spacious and modern inside. Plenty of outside-work activity, including charity events and sport.
Offices in Hanger Lane are a little off the beaten track. Managerial style differs a lot within the company. Commercial focus even from first few weeks.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kantar Worldpanel (London, England).
Telephone interview followed by an assessment day in the London office. One group task to complete which tested our knowledge of consumer shopping habits and the UK grocery market. Then a face to face interview with 2 interviewers, which was fairly informal and seemed to be more to gauge candidates personalities and interests and potential/ability to learn.
