Job Details

Our client is a long standing high quality research consultancy who are trusted advisors to a host well known auto brand owners. They enlighten them to what is going on the mind of the latent and real consumer. The manufactures vie for a place in our hearts by pursuing the ownership of a perceived expert space in both their communications and design strategies.  Be that as Innovators, engineering excellence or luxury for example. They always need to measure how they are doing at achieving these strategic goals and this company have experts in high quality quant and qual research to find out and steer these clients.

They even have a multi-client study in Auto to see what is important to car buyers, measuring the ebb and flow. Like for instance what we think of EVs and what is important to us. This of course changes all the time so it is an invaluable engagement platform.

We all have opinions on cars and it’s something we love to talk about. Some of our perceptions are based on a flimsy understanding of the facts and bias towards favourites but we are not always sure why and what is behind it. These classically forensic researchers get to the nub of it and help their clients make insight based decisions that take the risk out of NPD and design decisions.

They are having a buoyant period and after some unsettled times in the sector the opportunity is ripe for growth once more. We seek a similar auto specialist to join them at a director level to help there next phase of development. Someone who know what questions are salient in the segment to get something meaningful and useful back. They are open on backgrounds so if you are quant or qual or both please get in touch for more information.

Our clients have a robust secure ownership structure and investment is available for any initiatives to grow so those people working with Auto clients with a management consultancy background should also consider this opportunity.


We are a recruitment consultancy specialising in executive positions within the market research and other related industries. The word consultancy is chosen with care as we are not a paperpunting agency. We always offer honest, considered advice and appropriate introductions.
