The role

Research Manager needed to join a team working on bespoke quantitative research (ad hoc and tracking) for a dynamic, award-winning market research agency. You will work with a portfolio of leading brands across categories such as Retail, Beauty, Fashion, Transport; and with a number of charities.

In this role, you will be working on projects from the proposal stage through to presenting the deliverables. You will play a key role, leading on smaller projects and being part of a larger team on bigger projects, with Director support. On a typical day you would be responsible for the day-to-day management of multiple research projects and dealing with any issues that might arise with minimal supervisory input.

You will be expected to plan and mange project timelines, manage the analysis, interpretation and reporting to create insightful, thought provoking reports that answer the clients’ brief. You will also be adept at developing your own strong client relationships and contribute towards winning repeat work and new business.

You’ll be joining a small team of 7 researchers, sitting within the wider quant team of ~30. Outside of this, you will have the opportunity to collaborate regularly with colleagues across other teams, including qual, digital and creative.

This is both a challenging and rewarding role, giving the right candidate a fantastic opportunity for responsibility and development in a fast paced and supportive environment.

Tasks will include

  • Briefing calls/meetings, asking relevant questions to understand client requirements
  • Writing smaller proposals independently, owning sections of larger proposal, being able to cost projects commercially and competitively
  • Writing bespoke questionnaires that will answer the brief
  • Briefing in and liaising with ops teams
  • Script checking
  • Preparing specs for data tables, checking data tables
  • Quantitative data analysis, using custom analysis tools and where appropriate working with Analytics
  • Ownership of developing story-led reports across projects (usually charting in PowerPoint)
  • Debriefing to clients
  • Mentoring juniors, taking an active role in training/upskilling
  • Managing quality assurance right across the project lifecycle from questionnaires to scripts, to data and reporting (and supporting juniors to deliver the same)



We are looking for someone who is experienced, enthusiastic, and passionate about insight. To be successful you must have the following;

  • Degree level education, highly numerate
  • Strong quant research background: typically, 4+ years’ experience
  • Strong at all aspects of the project lifecycle, able to lead smaller projects and play a leading role in larger projects
  • Solution orientated; experience in troubleshooting and finding solutions
  • Knowledgeable about different research methodologies and analysis techniques
  • Fluid storyteller – hold a passion for finding the story in data and communicating this with clarity
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Demonstrating strong time management skills; confident planning and executing multiple projects to timelines
  • Be curious, ambitious, and show the passion and drive to make a difference to our organisation and to our clients’ businesses.
  • Strong attention to detail
  • Able to self-motivate and use initiative
