Associate Director (Open to RM’s as well) – Quant led - Insight and Activation Consultancy
Our client was a real breakaway insight consultancy success story. They effectively navigated the first few years to achieve growth and recognition way beyond expectations. Like many others they have weathered the storm of the past year and are now in a position of looking to the future with renewed confidence and enthusiasm. They are keen to add an enthusiastic, inquisitive and smart person who will enjoy being a big part of the company’s future. You are likely to be a current Associate Director or a Research Manager looking to grow.
Built by industry leaders with a strong reputation for delivering business consultancy as well as rigorous insight, they have tons of experience across a wide range of topics, audiences and sectors, but they are still just as excited by how they can learn and expand their knowledge from you as you can from them.
The type of work they do is certainly more strategic than tactical. Studies include big segmentations, market landscape / market entry studies, identifying new territories and products to drive innovation programmes, brand re-positioning and product / price optimisation. They often get briefs where the ‘problem’ is quite fundamental to the client e.g. this part of the business is failing... what do we do? They therefore work across qual and quant, designing bespoke studies to answer whatever the challenge is. So in qual they do forums, communities, IDIs, regular and creative groups and in quant they cover the full range. Quant is the major focus so strong experience in quant is essential; any exposure to qual would be a bonus.
They have a strong emphasis on working collaboratively in a pretty flat structure, everyone contributes without the boundaries of levels or structures and the refreshing news is that the hours are reasonable with everyone treated as a grown up.
You will be a confident hands on researcher. Your experience can be from a mainstream or specialist agency, ideally covering a variety of sectors and any international experience would be an advantage. Career defining opportunity to finely tune your consultancy skill set and help shape the company’s future.
