The clients are really varied but the key industries would be -

FMCG – smaller boutique and bigger brands


Arts and Culture


Awesome! Laid back, but also collaborative and super supportive. A good mix of experienced senior researchers and young talented ones.


What you’ll do……

What research won’t you do, is probably a better way to get a feel for this team and the work they deliver. The projects are varied, the clients are not all big names, and their problems are diverse.

You will have an opportunity to work on plenty of proposals and leading briefings, demonstrate a thorough understanding of client issues and drawing upon your creativity and technical skills to provide substation input into proposal development

Designing appropriate methodology, develop complex quantitative approaches and utilise frameworks to develop strategic and actionable outcomes

Utilising your drive, energy and brilliant communication skills (written, verbal and presentation skills), to provide clients with commercial outcomes and exceed their expectations


To be successful in this role you need to have or be…

Agile – a confident researcher who doesn’t get phased about leading projects on topics, products and industry segments you have never worked on before. Your sound understanding of methodology means you won’t get phased by any client that gets thrown at you. Ideally a Dualist but also a pure Quantitative Specialist will work just as well!

Our Senior Account Managers bring a minimum of 4 years of relevant market research experience, are highly curious and display excellent learning agility.

You will be comfortable working across numerous projects and clients and juggling multiple priorities. This role could give you the opportunity to step into some large accounts and will allow you to be a strategic partner to our clients, deliver real results, and join a highly collaborative team.
