We are looking for a Research Manager looking to step up to Associate Director – or an early-doors Associate Director looking to consolidate their experience in the brand, media and advertising arenas. These are huge growth areas for this highly respected agency, and they are winning significant new global programmes to add to their already-impressive client portfolio. As a result, they are hiring – so this is an opportunity to be involved in setting up a major new programme right from the start, as well as being involved with established clients.
The role spans tracking and campaign evaluation for brands of the highest order. As well as the media and comms tracking work, there are lots of deep dives, ad hoc pieces, working alongside the qual team, with data scientists etc. You will very often be part of a cohesive multi-agency team, working alongside the creative and media agencies. All very consultative, the focus is on getting to the heart of the client challenge and landing what the insight really means to clients and what they should do differently as a result of it.
A brilliant and highly regarded project management team work alongside the research team, running all aspects of project management, leaving the researchers free to focus on creating the best possible methodology and on the insight.
What sets this agency aside is the focus on people – both staff and clients – as well as their investment in innovation. Everyone has their eye on ensuring the agency is at the very forefront of thinking – including developing new digital methodologies, experiential techniques and passive research technologies – which help provide the most meaningful and accurate insight. Recent examples include developing passive measurement around digital ads, integrating social listening to survey data, using text analytics to determine what consumers really think about brands/the competitive set… As part of their very real commitment to driving thought leadership in the industry, there is the opportunity, should you wish, to speak at conferences and client events, get involved in writing papers etc. The culture here is entrepreneurial and agile – everyone at every level has the opportunity to take part in driving this innovation and change.
We need a credible quantitative researcher who has a passion for brands, media and advertising and who is committed to providing insight to clients which impacts on and inspires their thinking. We need to see established quant skills, confidence presenting findings and you will need to be a people-person who clients want to work and be with. This agency creates such close client relationships that this team is often briefed on a wide range of programmes for their clients, outside of the brand, comms and media remit – for example around reputational issues – we need someone who clients trust and want to work with. And, we need someone who is passionate about coaching and mentoring a team – either someone who is keen to do so, or has experience of it. We are completely open on sector specialism.
This is a high performing, forward thinking and innovative agency full of smart, dynamic, impressive – and genuinely nice – people. Their ethos is 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 – no constant restructures, no navel gazing, just a 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.
