Job Details

This independent boutique insights consultancy provides global insight and consumer-grounded design guidance for many of the world’s most recognisable CPG brands. With offices in London and New York City and conducting research across five continents, this is a consultancy that prides itself on being able to understand consumer’s relationship with design and how effective design can enhance the relationship with a brand. 

They have pioneered many innovative methodologies across multiple disciplines including packaging, visual brand language, innovation and strategy. They are well organised and meritocratic and leave space in their workflow for genuine thinking time as they pride themselves on remaining creative and innately tuned into to the cultural context of their work.

We seek candidates with solid consumer qual research experience - both f2f and online, you will need to be as passionate about design as this group of specialists to make the most of this unique opportunity. Having said this, they are certainly not expecting you to be an expert in this area yet - more they are offering you the opportunity to become one. 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. You will be in the position of working with some of the most knowledgeable and respected practitioners in this space who are as well connected as it gets.

As an Associate Director you will play a key role in building close and lasting relationships with clients, taking the lead on projects, working with and developing junior members of the team. You will still be keen to have involvement in projects making sure outputs are at the highest quality and presenting well thought out and actionable insights. 

If you have top notch qual skills and are keen to shape the future of consumer brands we would love to hear from you. 


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.
