Research Manager - Global Qual Consultancy
With offices in London and New York City and conducting research across five continents, this independent qual boutique with an enviable brand of its own provides global insight and consumer-grounded design guidance for many of the world’s most recognisable brands. As a laboratory of design research, they have pioneered many innovative methodologies across multiple disciplines including packaging, brand identity, new product development, retail design and more.
With qual research agency experience including moderating, they are certainly not expecting you to be an expert in design yet - more they are offering you the opportunity to become one. A background in brand communication and strategic marketing will be a helpful starting point for assimilating their design specialism. You’ll be keen to consult with your clients on areas such as packaging decisions, whether a logo pulls the right strings or how to re-brand and re-launch an existing product. Global reach and quality is at the heart of their offer, so if you are an intrepid traveller who’s excited by discovering other cultures, this could be the perfect environment for you. You will enjoy working with some of the most knowledgeable and respected practitioners in design research and they are great fun too!
