A London based market research agency is looking for a Qualitative Associate Director or Research Director.

The Company

This is for one of the fastest growing agencies in the UK. They pride themselves on having the flexibility of a boutique agency but the capabilities of a large one – being part of a larger group so they can work in small teams whilst utilising their wider resources.

They work across various sectors including, but not limited to; charities, large mobile operators, energy and media. They encourage innovation and are not afraid of breaking into new sectors. They have a flat structure and able to give enough attention to each of their staff in a caring and collaborative environment.

They are known for their trustworthiness, expertise and ambition – always looking to push the boundaries and never stop learning!

The Opportunity

Being one of the fastest growing companies for market research in the UK means this is a role born out of growth and they need an ambitious Research Director or possibly a strong Associate Director to step in.

They are looking for someone intelligent and dynamic who has the desire to push the boundaries and make a mark on the business. Their clients range from charities, telecoms, sports, utilities and energy – working across offline and online methodologies on forward thinking projects.

They have a separate business development team that takes a lot of the responsibility for generating leads and bringing in new clients, so this position will be less focused on the sales aspect. Of course, a commercial mind along with a network of contacts is always beneficial for a role at this level.

The position will be varied across online and offline methodologies, all using qualitative techniques with the majority of projects working alongside the quantitative team. It’s a real chance for an ambitious qual specialist to make a mark on business that’s on the up!

The Candidate

Requirements/desired backgrounds:

  • Qualitative specialist market research experience
  • Focus group moderation
  • A passion for research and innovation
  • Able to craft strong white papers and proposals
  • Commercial mind for spotting opportunities
  • Network of contacts also appreciated
