Intelligence Analyst

What You’ll Do

As an Intelligence Analyst with Decipher, you will be responsible for investigating senior executives who are being considered for new positions – in short, you will help protect our clients from making risky hires.

To provide variety, development and growth opportunities, Intelligence Analysts rotate every two weeks among three skill-based teams:

  • Source Research: Gather secondary source market data, identify primary sources, and compile background information for each project
  • Primary Source Interviews: Conduct telephone interviews using our script guide and techniques
  • Client Report Drafting: Write client updates and reports to share the relevant intelligence

You will be a part of a collaborative team environment, where you will be provided with training and guidance under the supervision of experienced Intelligence Coordinators. And you will be a critical part of Decipher’s mission to help our clients make better decisions, avoid financial losses and prevent reputational harm.

Unlike basic screening services, we combine quantitative data with human intelligence to accurately assess candidates’ business, skills, work style and character. Armed with this information, our clients grow safely and more efficiently, with success rates double the industry average.

You must be based in St. Louis; the ability to report to the office is critical.
