Research Manager (Strong SRE’s also considered) – Quant led mixed methods role – Strategic Insight Consultancy

Location: Central London
Salary: £33 – 45,000 + Bens
Job type: Permanent
Reference: AM114

Our client is a real breakaway insight consultancy success story. They effectively navigated the first few years to achieve growth and recognition way beyond expectations.  They are in a position of looking to the future with renewed confidence and enthusiasm. They are keen to add an enthusiastic, inquisitive and smart person who will enjoy being a big part of the company’s future. They are keen to add two people to the team. Whilst Research Manager Level is the sweet spot they will also consider strong SRE’s who are looking to grow.

The company was built by highly knowledgeable and genuine people who are well known in the industry and have a strong reputation for delivering rigorous insight and genuine consultancy to their clients. They have experience across a wide range of topics, audiences and sectors, but they are still just as excited by how they can learn and expand their knowledge from you as you can from them.

The type of work they do is certainly more strategic than tactical. Studies include segmentations, market landscape / market entry studies, identifying new territories and products to drive innovation programmes, brand re-positioning and product / price optimisation. They often get briefs where the ‘problem’ is quite fundamental to the client e.g. this part of the business is failing... what do we do? They therefore work across qual and quant, designing bespoke studies to answer whatever the challenge is. So in qual they do forums, communities, IDIs, regular and creative groups and in quant they cover the full range. Quant is the major focus overall so strong experience in quant is essential; any exposure to qual would be a bonus, also a chance for pure quanties to get some experience in qual that you may not be able to get elsewhere.

They have a strong emphasis on working collaboratively in a pretty flat structure, everyone contributes without the boundaries of levels or structures and the refreshing news is that the hours are reasonable with everyone treated as a grown up.

Your experience can be from a mainstream or specialist agency, ideally covering a variety of sectors and any international experience would be an advantage. This is truly a career defining opportunity where you can finely tune your consultancy skillset and help shape the company’s bright future.
