Like all good researchers we love a good story and this client has a great one. Not only have they had a strong year overall in the business as a whole, they have also started up a joint venture to create a new social division which is headed up by two fantastic directors. They are already seeing great wins and this side of the business is growing quickly. They have a strong heritage in qual and are now keen to add a heavy weight Quantie to the team. You could be an AD looking to push on or a current Director/Head of looking to get involved in something much more dynamic and exciting.

There are determined to revitalise the way in which research is used to create a better society. Their aim is to operate at the intersection of engagement, insight, and social action. To do this they understand they need to iterate, innovate and think systemically to identify and implement novel solutions to the intractable issues we face in the UK and globally.

What we also like is that they are open to the background you come from. If you have public sector/social experience that’s great, however they are equally happy to consider people who have a commercial or consumer background. It does however go without saying that you must be keen to work in this sector and be driven to make a positive impact in this world.

Given the early stage they are in as a business, you must be happy to be hands on and be able to deliver quantitative research that is engaging, creative and insightful whilst still being rigorous and robust and in order to deliver this, you must balance core quantitative expertise with creativity and storytelling skills and be keen to develop solutions. You will also be keen to nurture client and partner relationships; pitch and win new business; help to plan and deliver projects that will provide insights that will enable clients to act upon. Being early will also put you in the envious position of being able to help them shape and grow the business.

This is a business that values diversity. They seek naturally inquisitive, creative thinkers and problem solvers, people who bring an entrepreneurial spirit and who are happy to challenge the status quo from a position of understanding. This is the perfect role for someone who cares deeply about people and making positive impact.

If all of this excites you and you want to be part of a business which is growing and evolving in response to client needs and opportunities that arise to help make positive societal changes then we would love to hear from you.
