Associate Director: Qual, Media, Technology – exploring cultural trends and challenges

If you are a qualitative specialist, passionate about technology and media and you want to work with some of the most high-profile, fascinating, and forward-thinking global brands around, look no further!

We are looking for a motivated and engaged AD or experienced RM who is genuinely passionate about exploring the deeper cultural and societal context that is integral to understanding audiences and emerging trends.

This is a boutique-feeling team, part of a hugely successful agency which is at the top of its game – and which has an absolute focus on producing high quality work for their clients. This team works on interesting and challenging client questions for some of the leading and very best global brands in the media and tech arenas. You will have the opportunity to work on an exciting array of projects, spanning key topics of the day: from pop culture, to sustainability, to the metaverse.

A great time to join, this team is experiencing growth across all levels. There has been significant investment in innovation in terms of clever ways of working, you get time to really think about projects and have access to, and the opportunity to work with, experts in the field. There is also the chance to get involved with well-respected thought leadership pieces that have a real impact.

To give a flavour, a recent project on data privacy was award nominated and received huge traction. Another piece of work on accurate representation across national media channels, focused on avoiding portraying stereotypes, and involved delivering workshops for a leading broadcaster.

The culture of this team is really important to them – deep thinking with lots of support, this is an environment where the people genuinely get on and help each other. With a fantastic training offer, there is ample opportunity to grow your skills and really take the lead on areas of work you are passionate about. Many people in this team have joined from a boutique agency background and they love it!

The right candidate must have good all-round qual skills, be an excellent communicator, and have a natural ability to see the big picture, drawing in broader themes to the work you produce. You will be comfortable liaising with major clients, developing existing client relationships and getting involved in growing the business – with a focus on developing relationships for the long term rather than short term wins.

This is a fantastic place to develop your career and enjoy yourself along the way. A stable culture, there are 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.
