Job Details

A great vocational opportunity exists for a quant researcher who is passionate about the environment and how our national energy strategy is being formed to work at a company that is well connected and influential enough to have real input in the debates and the outcomes in this key policy area. A rapidly growing business and one in the public sphere. This is one of the most innovative and fast-moving policy areas within the UK and internationally, so the work is high profile and important for us all.

Our client responds to the needs of the UK government and its agencies to help design, deliver and evaluate policies in areas critical to the transition to a net zero and climate resilient economy and society. Some of the principal themes they cover are: decarbonisation, clean growth, low carbon innovation and entrepreneurship, circular economy, agricultural transition, climate risk awareness, climate change adaptation, behaviour change and public attitudes.

We seek a Research Director or a progressive Associate Director who is dynamic leader with substantial research experience to join our client and help drive their growth in these key areas.

You will direct high profile studies which influence and inform communications and decision-making within Government and the third sector. You will also develop key client accounts and grow their business.

We are looking for a highly capable methods expert specialised in either quantitative or mixed method research skills, with experience in business development and managing client accounts and teams. Experience of working in energy and environment policy is desirable but not essential but to perform in the role you are most likely experienced in the public or social side of the research and insights world.

Our client is open to flexible working and committed to equality.


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.
