08 Jan Senior Research Manager: #2 hire; Product Innovation and Brand Engagement, Sydney
Our client is a successful, fast growing and pacey research agency with fifteen offices across the USA, Europe and Asia-Pacific. In just one decade, they have grown rapidly and now work with more than half of the world’s top 100 brands. Their Sydney office opened doors for business in September 2019 and the reception has been great. With numbers tracking well, the time has come to make their second hire – a Senior Research Manager – to take the lead on projects, service clients and help build the Australian business.
To begin with, you will need to be prepared to get your hands dirty with projects – an ‘all-in’ mentality. You will have project resource on hand so along with contributing to new business pitches, getting involved in client debriefs, designing research projects, analysing and interpreting primary research data, you will be encouraged to consult with clients and build out new business.
Everything they do is online quant. Their work spans continuous and ad-hoc but every tracker is different and feels more like customised work - there is very little regular reporting.
The Sydney MD has a strong background in all things brand so it would be great if you can bring some shopper expertise into the mix, ideally including pack and POS testing, pricing analysis, product innovation… Fit is critical: we need smart people who have an opinion, driven, dynamic, hungry and interested in the digital world.
This agencies model is different: the research programmes themselves and all project management is run through their team in India, so the researchers oversee but do not manage the projects. The research team focus on the analysis and managing the client relationship: their overriding objective is to provide strategic direction and consultancy.
Development wise – you could move into a Research Team Lead role, with involvement in hand picking your own team, or you could decide to choose a client development path. Being there from the start will give you a head start in choosing your career path.
