Head of Quant; growing, ambitious, strategic boutique agency

This is a rare opportunity for an experienced and ambitious quantitative director to run and develop the quant offer of this high calibre boutique agency. The focus is on inspiring senior clients (usually Heads of Marketing and Heads of Brand), leading and supporting a smart team and ensuring high quality outputs. The role will suit someone who is looking for that next step up, and who wants to play a key role in helping an already-successful agency fulfil its ambitious plans for the future. They have a strategy in place to help them achieve significant growth and have already embarked on their plan. This role would see you help drive this forward. The rewards are significant both in terms of the package and also the opportunity for equity down the line.

This agency is the go-to partner for their clients’ big strategy pieces and difficult challenges. They take the work to the next level of thinking, going further than the other more strategic insight consultancies. The focus is on how to solve the clients’ problems and giving clarity around what clients need to do as a result of the insight.

They have a long-standing client portfolio of leading B2C and B2B businesses. They know their clients’ businesses, challenges and issues well and as a result, can really help them with their decision making: people here say you really do get to see the impact of your work.

Properly method neutral, they use a wide range of techniques to answer client questions – traditional and online qual, quant, semiotics, analytics (they have an inhouse analytics specialist) … And much of the work is global in nature.

Culture wise, this is a friendly, collaborative team – people enjoy coming into the office, they have lunch together, it’s all straightforward with no dramas.

For this role, we need a high level, consultative senior quant director who has experience across B2C and B2B clients, and who can hold court with senior clients. Intellectual rigour is important – you will need to be able to take the work to the next level and tell senior clients what they need to do as a result of the insight – and be able to voice this thinking with credibility.

We also need someone with a growth mindset who is always looking for new opportunities with clients.

Equally, we need someone loves leading a team and growing talent, and we need a nice person – someone who will fit into the team and who everyone can all get along with.

This client is open to full time or 4 days/week. For full time, you would need to be in the office 3 days/week, and if you are working 4 days/week, you will need to be in the office twice/week.
