back to all jobs

Established following the convergence of 4 innovative brands, our client is a specialist growth consultancy with branding, marketing, retail, sales, and shopper expertise all under one roof. The aim is to re-write the rules and switch on growth for clients, categories, and people.

They are powerful and professional, yet also creative and agile, and currently seeking a talented Director to join their Human and Cultural Insight practice for 12 months maternity cover. You will be working in a small team of 5 Human Insight experts, focusing on bringing the consumer/human angle to a range of different client challenges.

This is a challenging and highly varied position, where you’ll have the opportunity to work alongside some of the best brains in the business on complex strategic projects with some of the world’s biggest and most exciting brands! You’ll also benefit from awesome offices with fantastic views of London and great food and cocktails!


  • This is not a typical ‘pure’ qual role! Some of your time will be spent working on projects, but at other times you will be advising non-researchers on approaches, making decisions on in/outsourcing, managing client and cross-agency relationships, and training/mentoring other team members.
  • You will be working in multi-skilled teams, so on any given project you may find yourself working alongside Quanties, Strategists, Brand Consultants, Management consultants, Futures/trends experts etc.
  • Outside of the company itself, you might also be collaborating with sister agencies from traditional researchers to ad planners and creatives.
  • You will need to take a ‘T shaped’ approach. The role requires in-depth Human Insight expertise, but also gaining a working knowledge of other practice areas and how to combine these inputs to build the best solutions for clients.


  • Solid background in qualitative research is essential, gained agency-side, ideally in a strategic/consultancy environment
  • Experience of the full spectrum of human insight approaches, from traditional focus groups and depth interviews to digital ethnography, online communities and co-creation
  • Proven track record of pitching, building and developing client relationships
  • Likely to have 8yrs+ experience and be roughly at Research Director level (or an ambitious AD)


  • Location: Central London
  • Salary: £60-75k per annum
  • Duration: 12 months (maternity cover)
