Manchester From GBP 36.000 Research Consulting Services
Your role

What is it about

Our UK team is located in Manchester and London. We help our clients to let go and delegate real power to consumers, the ultimate key to making better marketing decisions and driving business growth. We get our energy from helping world-leading brands to excel in marketing and to develop deeper connections with consumers on a global scale. Our recipe for success: a never-ceasing enthusiasm, a lot of hard work, a culture of sharing, and continuous innovation in research methods and marketing thought leadership. And last but not least: positively surprising our clients every day. As a Research Manager, you fully manage client projects and help companies to listen to and collaborate with their customers, based on InSites Consulting’s innovative research methods. The key role of the Research Manager is to manage complex quantitative/ qualitative/ community research projects, with a senior member of the business overseeing the work. Also included is project lead for routine or simple research projects, and assisting in the development of junior staff.

What you'll do

  • You are responsible for running projects from A to Z; from setting up a research project to delivering an impactful report and presentation to the client, while keeping the business objectives in mind in every step of the process
  • You design narrative-led reports with advanced and actionable marketing advice, to support your clients in their decision making
  • You are in close contact with clients within the Finance & Retail industry to understand their strategic goals, which you translate into concrete research objectives

Your profile

What you'll bring

We are looking for an experienced colleague, with a proven track record in online market research, developing consumer insights and working with qualitative and quantitative research techniques. You are proficient in English (both oral and written); knowledge of any other language is an asset.

  • Connecting with clients and colleagues comes naturally to you
  • You have a strong sense of ownership and dedication
  • You’re creative, humorous, and fun to work with
  • You have a proactive and hands-on mindset
