Associate Director, Qual - Auto/Retail/Media/Telcos/Tech - Independent Consultancy
Excellently reputed independent research and insights business occupying the consultancy space between full service research agencies and management consultants, where every project is about providing real world insight. They have developed ground-breaking bespoke methods across quant, qual and integrated quant/qual, as well as a comprehensive set of modern approaches applying cultural insight, semiotics and anthropology alongside innovative research techniques. This is an opportune time to be joining this company as they are proactively expanding and investing across the business, ensuring a broad and fascinating array of studies and clients to work on.
They seek a qualitative researcher who would be interested in focussing around 50% of their time on the domestic and international automotive sector. Sector experience is definitely NOT expected, more important are your proven qual skills combined with an interest in cars. With a massive acceleration (excuse the pun!) in their auto projects and clinics work, they seek a quallie who is happy to drive, takes an active interest in cars and is genuinely enthusiastic about the sector. There will also be the opportunity to work closely with the Head of Qual on other sectors such as retail, media, telecoms and tech.
As a key member of a mid sized (c.40 researchers) independent agency, you will enjoy being active across the business, surrounded and supported by knowledgeable and skilled researchers, including sector and technique specialists. With a very positive, inclusive approach to further skill development and a collaborative working ethos embodied in their beautifully designed offices, you will thrive in this professional yet highly creative environment.
