Associate Director: corporate reputation; high profile clients and issues

Within this successful and entrepreneurial corporate reputation research team, you’ll be working with very senior clients to provide insight which informs strategy around all public and political reputational issues.

Your focus will be on helping your clients develop a clear understanding of their reputational currency – how strong it is and what drives, builds and sustains it. You’ll be identifying and targeting key stakeholders (governments, NGOs, the media, academics…) and markets, determining the factors that drive favourability and investigating current and potential issues.  The insight you generate will provide clear and practical advice in terms of identifying communication strategies, activities and messages which develop corporate reputation in the most effective way.  Your work will feed directly into the stakeholder and communications strategies – you’ll really see the impact of your insight.

You’ll need to be genuinely interested in the corporate world – but not necessarily from a corporate research background. You’ll love working on briefs that don’t have a straightforward solution. You’ll enjoy managing lots of different kinds of projects and love international work. The work is varied and tailored – it’s mainly bespoke.  We are open to hearing from quant-focused people as long as you are keen to learn about qual (mainly interviewing senior stakeholders) – or mixed methods people. You’ll need a track record of winning business and developing client relationships. You’ll need credibility and gravitas – able to work with C-Suite clients in some of the most high profile and exciting global businesses. And you’ll need to be a great leader, motivated by developing junior members of staff.

You’ll be offered all the benefits of a top-drawer agency:  second-to-none training, wider development opportunities, a smart and ambitious team…. and at the same time, play a key role in growing a highly-successful mini-business which is a leader in its field. This team runs like a small business – they are entrepreneurial and that’s how they like it – they run in an autonomous way. And they are winning new business and experiencing significant growth– so it’s a great time to join and develop your career for the longer term.

The ethos of this agency is all about creating quality work for clients and this focus really pays off in terms of their commercial performance – they are massively outperforming their competitors. It’s a stable culture with a consistent focus on delivering great work to clients. As part of this, they genuinely care about their staff and retention is very high – a recent hire at this level called it a “family atmosphere” where people get things done and are happy at work.

Moreover, you can expect exceptional training and career development opportunities – as well as a very realistic work-life balance.
