Are you tired of the city commute? Not looking for the conformity of a big agency? Do you see yourself as much more aligned to an adventurous strategic boutique? Do you think you have the personality to help drive and shape the future of a business if you can find the right home at the right time??

We are looking for exactly that wish list in a candidate.

Position description:

  • Deliver across the complete client research deliverable (creating winning proposals through to extracting insights and delivering the presentation)
  • Manage and deepen relationships with an ever-growing FMCG client base
  • Champion new market insights and deliver compelling thinking to clients
  • Help to continually evolve the service experience, approaches and thinking
  • Help develop the team with future reporting lines in to you
  • Work hand in hand with the General Manager
  • Mainly quantitative insights/data strategy/consultancy with integration of qualitative insights

Company Profile:

  • Young, fresh boutique market research agency
  • Established as a big player in FMCG consumer insights and data strategy
  • Beautiful Northern Beaches location offering the ultimate combination of career and lifestyle
  • Most known for Concept Testing, Product Testing, Shopper Research, Customer Segmentation, Online Communities and Innovation/Brand Strategy
  • Small team of market research experts and agency/clientside seniors with industry leading reputations


  • A culture of continued improvement – change is the only constant and adaption is the key to success
  • To be open and adventurous in our thinking and collaboration
  • To have fun along the way (team BBQs, training and unique office to enjoy the day to day)
  • Quality over quantity to have the time to exceed expectations
  • Always learning and integrating new thinking

Application criteria:

  • Ideally 7 years’ minimum research experience from a commercial consumer insights agency setting
  • Comfortable with ad hoc research, not solely tracking, as this agency is brief driven not product driven
  • A breadth and depth of quantitative research methods
  • Ideally experience in FMCG or shopper but this is not a deal breaker
  • Comfortable in the detail but a big picture strategist
  • An influential personality for clients and the team
  • Operationally organised
