If you are looking to step into a successful, dynamic environment with energy, buzz and pace, the drive to develop new ways of working, rigorous thinking and the opportunity to work on some of the most well-known, successful global brands, you’ll be hard pushed to beat this success story of an agency.
What’s different about it here is that the research team focus on providing the insight and resulting consultancy advice to their clients: most of the project management and business development is the responsibility of other teams. You get to input into these but creating the story and managing client relationships are the key parts of the role.
The scale of opportunity for career development also stands out. You can stick your hand up to get involved in new projects, develop specialist areas of interest (recent examples include advanced analytics and developing new processes and tools…) and travel: someone in the team recently went over to work in Singapore – there is a very real opportunity to travel here if you wish. And there’s no waiting around for promotion either – you get promoted when you are ready and there are lots of examples of people moving up quickly, both as the result of the level of exposure and the work coming in.
This role is focused on one of the most successful global FMCG businesses across three of their key (and all very different) product areas. Your focus will be on creating the narrative; this client wants to know what they should do differently as a result of the insight so you will need to draw out the key actions for them. In their words, this agency’s approach is ‘story-led, story-first’. You’ll be client facing – and as part of this, you can expect to be running all-day workshops with the client to pull out the actions they can take forward. And you’ll need to enjoy being hands-on. You need to be able to take a brief, pull together costs and timings and run with it. You will be supported by junior members of staff – your role is to ensure everything is properly set up (DP set up, questionnaire design, data tables etc) and that the detail is water-tight.
We are looking experience of innovation research, someone who has experience of concept and pack testing, journey mapping, in-home usage tests, and usage & attitude studies. Global experience is a must. You will need a focus on rigour and process to ensure the results are robust. And you will need to embrace variety – you may find yourself working across other clients and other types of work from time to time – so you will need to be the kind of person who embraces this.
We are open to people at entry-level Research Manager and Senior Research Manager-level for this role.
It’s pretty rare to be told “I really love it here” in a briefing! Asked why, we were told that the people are smart and have an opinion, they are team spirited, driven, dynamic, curious and interested. It’s a brave environment where the attitude is to crack on and make things happen.
If you are looking to take the next step, challenge and develop yourself and have a lot of fun along the way, do get in touch.
