Job Details

If you are looking for a company that has a flat structure, a strong emphasis on working collaboratively where everyone contributes without the boundaries of levels or structures. If you want to work with people who are genuine and down to earth, who look after their team and are still just as excited by how they can learn and expand their knowledge from you as you can from them then this is the career defining opportunity you have been looking for.

When clients come to you with a huge diversity of research challenges and strategic issues you know you are doing something right. You have the right people, the right ethos and are utilising all possible tools and data sources to gather the insight that is going to enable you to help your clients to be successful. This is exactly what this strategic agency has been doing since inception. They don’t stand still; they explore and innovate, adding new and better ways of delivering opportunities for their clients.

Continued growth means they are keen to add another senior person to their exceptional team at Associate Director Level (RM’s and Junior Directors will also be considered). This would ideally be someone with a mixed method background, someone able to move seamlessly between quant & qual able to bring them together to deliver compelling insights and opportunities. They are though pragmatic and flexible and understand that people may have more experience and exposure to one side, if that’s the case then we would say quant is the must have with an openness to qual!

They look for people to be open and enthusiastic about using the best approaches and techniques to get to the solutions for their clients. Any imbalance or gaps in experience can be filled. The fit for both parties needs to be natural.

They are in the enviable position of having many repeat clients so they are keen to bring someone in who still enjoys being at the coalface, involved in projects and someone who enjoys developing clients and accounts; It’s less about sales and more about spotting opportunities and working with clients across multiple areas so that you become experts in their business.

The type of work they do is certainly more strategic than tactical. Recent studies have included 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 fundamental to the client e.g. this part of the business is failing... what do we do? Projects that you can really get your teeth into!



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.
