Skilled at planning, performing and analysing qualitative consumer research and expert interviews you will take ownership of research projects – from managing recruitment to running the fieldwork and creating engaging deliverables. However this is a collaborative working environment so you will always have people to turn to for inspiration and advice and similarly you will be keen to share skills across teams, speci?cally nurturing and developing more junior researchers. Excellent and rare opportunity to extend your career to the future-proofed, broader consultancy sector servicing world class clients across the globe.
