Our client is a leading brand strategy and insight agency. They operate on a global scale, with offices around the world. They have experienced rapid growth and their UK team is now over 60-strong. They handle a blue-chip client-list including major pharmaceutical, FMCG and telecommunications companies.

You will require extensive research skills to help manage innovation and strategy projects and deliver value for a wide range of clients.

As well as managing the delivery of high-quality qualitative research and suggesting new methodologies and contributing to our client’s pitches, the successful candidate will have a heavy hand in setting both the strategic thinking behind and the delivery of the overall projects for their clients.

·         Have a strong academic background (including a 2:1 or above from a highly-rated university)

·         Have research and consulting experience of a wide range of sectors and clients

This is a great opportunity for a candidate hoping to apply their Qualitative Research skills in a challenging and exciting consultancy with exposure to great household name brands.
