Objectives and Key Deliverables

We are conducting research into the German Auctioneer industry linked to an investment we have in the space.

We need a native German speaker to conduct c. 20 introduced, telephone based interviews with auctioneers in Germany to understand trends in the industry and the outlook, including their use of digital (i.e. online auctions).

In addition to understanding industry health and demand for digital / online auction services, we would also like to understand the provider landscape for online auctions, which would include a combination of views of the auctioneers in the interviews, and some desktop/online research.

We would expect a set of 20 word based interview transcripts c. 3 pages long each summarising the calls, as well as short summaries of findings / key insights at the end of each day.

In addition, we also anticipate some assistance with the following (level of assistance to be agreed):
-Analysis of the competitive landscape (likely powerpoint and excel) including key competitors, size, growth, ownership, key KPIs, recent activity, and other relevant information
-Updating of an existing spreadsheet of all auctioneers in Germany for completeness including detailing which digital provider each auctioneer utilises

The work would ideally be conducted from our offices in central London, however there could be an option to work from our offices for the first 3 days and then remotely for c. 1 week before coming back into our offices at the end of the project

Must be a native German speaker (please do not apply if you're not a native speaker)
Must have experience with consulting style customer interview programs.
Must have either strategy consulting or in house strategy team experience.
Would ideally have some exposure to / understanding of the auctioneering industry.
The client is looking at a range of £400-500 per day.
