This is a rare opportunity to work alongside a key government department, consulting on the use of the most up-to-date and innovative methodologies for their comms research and ensuring that knowledge and best practice are shared across the client team. Your role is focused on how to create the best possible communications research in order to ensure best in class campaigns and sharing this information amongst key client stakeholders. Ultimately, your work will have a very real impact on society and help to improve lives – in short, it will make a real difference.
This dynamic and successful social research team has just won a huge new research programme with a high-profile government department focused on evaluating the impact of their communications campaigns on behaviour change. This is a major win and this role will be focused on working alongside this one client – and alongside multiple stakeholders within the client team – to ensure that the best, most innovative and effective methodologies are being used and that efficiencies are created across the programme.
As you will be focused on this one account and will be taking such a consultative role, you can expect to be at the client’s office (very close to your own) on a very regular basis. You will be involved in discussions around which techniques to employ, how to do things better and facilitating training and knowledge sharing with both clients and the agency team.
This is a role for someone with high level quant (and ideally qual) skills from a communications background who enjoys taking an advisory and consultative role and advising clients on the best approaches to take. It will suit someone with a comms background – not necessarily a social research background (although some experience would be ideal, and an interest in it a must) – who enjoys being up to the minute in terms of developments, from both an academic and industry perspective.
You will need gravitas, credibility and confidence for this role, a track record of shaping heavyweight comms programmes, be focused on quality and be a real team player. Your peer group within the agency will be the senior quant and qual leads for the programme and you will be working closely with them – you will need to be an excellent communicator with strong interpersonal skills.
This role will suit someone who enjoys taking a consultative approach to client challenges, understands the theory of behaviour change and is committed to developing best practice and knowledge sharing – rather than someone who enjoys the day-to-day programme implementation side.
If you want to make a genuine difference to peoples’ lives, work with a hugely prestigious client and develop a cutting-edge comms programme, please get in touch.
