Job Details

This multi award winning strategic research & insights agency is keen to add a new mid/senior level person (RM/AD level) with a strong background in quantitative research. This is a mixed-method agency which means you will get the chance to work on quant only projects as well as working collaboratively with your qual colleagues on mixed projects.

Their work has a strong international focus with state-of-the-art solutions developed in collaboration with leading thinkers in academia, media and other experts. Much is spoken of the industry embracing innovative techniques, but here is a company truly devoted to methodological creativity and rigour, so this is an excellent opportunity to broaden your own experience with the ground-breaking practices developed here.

They take great pride in the fact that they tackle each project with fresh eyes. They value their clients’ individual needs and believe that their own experience should inform but not dictate each new study. This means they cast the net wide to inform themselves on what is taking place both locally and internationally, always on the lookout for new techniques and trends.

As an RM/AD in this team you will get to work on a wide range of projects across sectors. From NPD, Brand, Comms and customer centric studies to deep exploratory pieces, the work always leans towards the more strategic than tactical.  

This is a company that gives people responsibility so as an RM/AD you will:

  • Run/lead projects from start to finish
  • Manage project teams, delegate to and support junior members of your team
  • Write proposals
  • Be the primary contact for clients
  • Take the lead on project set-up and planning
  • Be the primary contract for clients and suppliers
  • Analyse the findings and prepare deliverables (create the story) Present to clients
  • Delegate to and develop the skills of more junior colleagues
  • Get involved in New Business discussions
  • Build/maintain relationships with new and existing clients
  • Develop industry knowledge and input into PR content for the company

This is the ideal role for you if you are passionate about your craft, enjoy working with others, keen to bring ideas to the table and most importantly like to have fun and want to work in a hands-on environment with an outstanding record for staff development and promotion.



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.
