Associate Director | Consumer & Innovation

Salary | £45,000 - £48,000 (depending on experience)

Location | Central London

THE ROLE  & COMPANY |  You will gain a fantastic exposure to blue chip clients across a range of sectors and work on a variety of different ad-hoc projects across the Consumer arena. The team focuses on consumer research / innovation, forecasting and consultancy and works closely with digital and qualitative Consultants to deliver strategic recommendation for their clients. Their work includes: testing new innovations in the form of ideas, concepts, packaging and products, portfolio management solutions, pricing, promotions solutions and volume forecasting. You will work with a mixture of methodologies including real time mobile data and digital communities and partner familiar and loved brands across a wide range of categories including consumer, shopper, retail and healthcare sectors. Interest in Consumer and Retail sectors will be highly desirable (but we will consider classically trained Quantitative ADs from other sectors who would love to make a switch to consumer driven work). The role is ideal if you wish to enhance your current research and people management skills and take your career to the next level.

ABOUT YOU | You are an agency trained Associate Director looking for a new challenge in a full-service, custom project-driven market research agency. You'd love to get involved with major blue chip client accounts and are also keen to work on a variety of smaller ad-hoc projects (UK and international studies). Proven project and people management skills are essential. You’ve got fantastic proposal writing skills and can contribute effectively to client pitches / lead pitches for smaller projects. The team love candidates who dare being independent and have an entrepreneurial spirit. You have a chance to shape the team’s success with your creativity, ideas and cast-iron research skills.
