Intelligence Analyst - Open Source Intelligence Investigator

Job description

Corsearch is the premier provider of creation and protection solutions for trademark and brand professionals with highly trained researchers, an expansive global content set, specialized technology tools which incorporate customer input.

Corsearch has more than 800 team members serving over 5,000 clients on five continents, and we’re growing and changing rapidly. We are a fantastic company to work for — with great benefits, growth opportunities, and a terrific internal culture — and we truly believe that it’s people who make us thrive. Every day, we are transforming ourselves into a better partner for our customers, a better employer for our colleagues, and a better investment for our owners.

Why work as an Intelligence Analyst at Corsearch?

As an Intelligence Analyst and online investigator, you will be working in the investigations team to identify high-volume sellers. To achieve this, you will use innovative and strategic methods to analyze networks and identify connections. You will collect and organize useful evidence and report your findings to the client or to your team. Your eye for detail and your creativity are essential in determining the value of the information.

While Corsearch's team, consisting of professionals specialised in IP law, focus on wiping infringing domains, marketplace listings, and social media profiles off the face of the internet, the investigations team focuses their energy on bringing down the most significant players behind the infringements. By taking prominent sellers out of the equation, the investigations team plays an integral role in helping eliminate counterfeit networks for Corsearch's clients.

What will you do?

- Use OSINT tools and other investigative software solutions

- Identify, investigate and analyze networks of infringers 

- Properly seize and safeguard the chain of evidence

- Conduct and manage test purchases online

- Set up and maintain relationships with clients and third parties 

- Provide input on how we can improve our service and software 


What will your working day look like?

Whether it's investigating a factory that is selling counterfeit footwear, infiltrating a supplier's online stock portal, or coming up with new and inventive ways of identifying targets, life in Corsearch's investigations team offers a broad and rewarding opportunity. The team is small but growing fast, meaning that you will be at the heart of operations that disrupt and destroy counterfeit networks.
