Project Management Director; leadership of a key global client programme; innovation and consumer behaviour

A hugely important role within this international agency, you will head up all aspects of project management for a complex global programme, focused on the development of ground-breaking new brands in the consumer sector, and exploring consumer behaviour around these products in terms of usage and uptake.

A multi-million-pound account spanning a wide range of global programmes, there is a strong focus on tracking in multiple markets.

This is a high-profile role within the business. As PM Director, your remit will be to ensure the delivery of the high-quality data this agency is known for on time and to budget. You will be responsible for driving efficiencies, always adding value and looking for better ways of working to deliver value to the client. And you will take a long term view, looking ahead to ensure the programme continues to evolve and deliver.

A very client facing role, you can expect full and positive client engagement: this client is highly regarded in the agency because they listen and follow the advice given. Described as a true partnership, there is a high degree of trust.

You will head up a team of 3-4 research project management specialists and will work alongside the research team delivering on this programme. Team leadership and teamwork are vital for this role – this is a cohesive team of people who are passionate, interested and want to do a great job.

As part of your remit, you will be responsible for driving ongoing innovation in order to create more effective ways of working – including ensuring the most up to date technology is being fully utilised.

For this role, we need a high calibre, established and strategic project management superstar who has experience of running and setting up complex global programmes, including global tracking programmes, across multiple markets.

Exceptional client facing skills are a must – we need someone with instant gravitas and credibility, who is an expert in their (research project management) field and who can add value from the get-go.

This is a pacey client, so you will need to be fleet of foot and as forward thinking and ambitious for their brands as they are. We need to see energy, proactivity and a drive to make a difference in spades.

You must have a good understanding of research and operations, and be used to working alongside senior stakeholders – and having a voice with them.

This is a hugely successful and stable business with a genuine focus on the wellbeing of their staff. One Director recently told us that it was the most caring business they had worked for.

Culturally, the environment is a breath of fresh air – people are empowered and encouraged to add value and as a result, it feels energised and upbeat.
