Quant/quant-focused Associate Director: “go-to” strategy partner for leading global clients

This role will appeal to a smart, ambitious quantitative or quant-focused mixed methods researcher who wants to do strategic, long-term work with leading clients. This agency is the go-to partner for their clients’ big strategy pieces and their difficult challenges – this is what they are known for.

Working with leading B2C and B2B organisations (a wide range, with a focus on tech and telcos), because the work is long term, the team say they get to know their clients’ businesses and issues well, so can really help them with their decision making. People here say you really do get to drive your clients’ strategies and decision making and that 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. And the work is very high quality.

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.

This is a senior team, everyone is bright and capable and people joining from other agencies say that as well as the strategic and challenging nature of the work, what stands out is the level of ownership, as well as the opportunity to learn from people at the top of their game.

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 quant specialist who is smart, dynamic and who wants to do more strategic work.  The role requires exposure to/experience working with different quant methodologies, survey design, data analysis tools (i.e., Q, excel), great story-telling abilities and experience working with qual specialists to integrate findings.

The client is also open to someone with a quant-focused mixed methods background. 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 to senior clients.
