Associate Director £45k-£50k +bonus

We are looking for an AD with a difference. No big egos need apply please. A true and instinctive team player, you will be bright, smart and driven, but you do not think you are better than anyone else. You thrive on - indeed have an urge to - guide, nurture, grow and inspire and supportively challenge your colleagues.

The role,  due to growth, will be sitting in a team of 10 which is headed up by a director. You will of course work alongside the director but more importantly your core function is to boosting the rest of the team, contributing your experience ideally in both quantitative and qualitative research. The team’s work is incredibly varied, working closely with their clients and their suppliers and partners. You will have the confidence and charisma to engage with clients at all levels with a passion for big heritage brands at the upper end of the high street and online.  You will spend your time 50/50 on clients and team, and work collaboratively, with the insight team of your clients on proposals and ideas to pitch to their stakeholders. You will spend time in your clients’ offices, you will lead workshops with your clients and always want to deliver the most meaningful presentations and debriefs.

The youngish agency, founded by an MR industry heavy weight is approaching its first decade differs in many ways in its positioning, use of tech and most fundamentally in its approach and energy.  Although people here have titles and you can expect formal reviews and progression, it feels like a flat structure as participation and creative thinking is encouraged from all team members, at all levels. To join this tribe you will need commitment, although the salary and bonuses are more than decent you are more likely be attracted to their work and their vibe. Their commitment to training and development is well documented, as is their ability to celebrate their successes. An initiative to give back to the local community, is under way and will be launched in Q3.

It does not smell like team spirit here, it smells of team spirit. Want to know more? If you are an agency researcher with at least RM experience and the right to work in the UK, please get in touch.
