This highly successful company is home to an impressive portfolio of well known and loved brands and is a hugely innovative and dynamic presence in the entertainment sector. Insight plays a critical role across this business – the voice of the user is critical to strategy, decision-making, innovation and marketing. This role will suit a hands-on mixed methods researcher whose priority is to use the data to add value – someone who focuses on the “so what” factor in terms of what the insight means and what needs to be done differently as a result of it.
Product development is critical to the ongoing success of this business and you will need a strong track record on this side; you will need to have been involved right from the start of developing new products and be used to working with product marketing teams. This is an agile and dynamic business – the pace, including the pace of change, are fast – you will need to thrive in this kind of environment.
There is a lot of internal data in this organisation and a comprehensive tracking programme (run by a colleague) as well as significant ad hoc work. You will need to be very comfortable with quant, both continuous and ad hoc. In terms of qual, they use a wide range of techniques – you will need, at least, a good understanding of these, and ideally experience of delivering them.
This is a consultancy-style role so as well as adding value and focusing on what the insight means, you will need to have exceptional influencing and communication skills. You will be used to driving change, pushing back and challenging where you need to and generally owning and promoting your viewpoint, including with senior leaders. This is a very open, non-hierarchical culture – there are no egos, everyone’s view is valid – and can be challenged. You will need to be at home with this.
For this role, the client is open to client-side or agency side experience – or a mix of both. They are looking for solid experience working for media, entertainment, tech, telecoms, mobile etc brands. Experience of online panel management in terms of managing online communities would be a real benefit. The role will suit a mixed methods researcher who has a good understanding of which techniques need to be used when and why, a good strategic understanding – and someone who can role their sleeves up and get involved themselves, as well as adding value to the work of the agencies.
For this role, the client is open to someone operating at this level now, or who can step up into the role – hence the wide salary band on offer.
Please note, this is a full-time role.
