Senior Behavioural Scientist: making Behavioural Economics accessible and actionable, Melbourne

FLOW recruitment
June 10, 2020
Melbourne, Australia
Job Type


A research, insights and strategy agency with a clear point of difference; everything they do is driven by Behavioural Science.

Their work is recognised at the highest level.  People listen to what they have to say.  And this shows in their highly decorated award cabinet and ever-growing list of private and public sector clients.

All projects blend behavioural science techniques (frameworks and concept, behavioural journeys, habit formation and behavioural deep dives) with primary qual and quant.

Research briefs are diverse, topical, and meaningful.  Examples include reducing incidents of bullying amongst the fire service, recruiting more teachers to regional areas in Victoria, re-designing the customer journey for a major telco, encouraging respondents to answer honestly when completing life insurance forms, and minimising customer churn for a healthcare provider.

As equally as exciting, is the opportunity to reinvigorate research methodologies as well as develop new ones, and to build bridges between the real world and academia.

Firstly, you need to be passionate about Behavioural Economics; constantly curious about what drives and influences us as consumers and individuals.  Exposure, expertise, and application of Behavioural Economics and behavioural change is an essential requirement.

We need a highly capable person who can conduct qualitative research, integrate client data, and who seeks to enrich insights through quantitative research.  Experience conducting randomised controlled trials, econometric modelling and deploying choice models is advantageous.

Consulting with clients, managing client relationships and creating, delivering, and landing research that is the lynch-pin to driving client strategy is key.

This role may suit a budding Behavioural Scientist looking for a step-up, or someone in a larger organisation keen to work in an agile, consultancy environment.

In return, you will benefit from joining a fantastic business, in fine financial shape, with excellent career prospects.

Interested? Please send your CV to or call James on +61 (0) 408 509 289 for an informed and confidential discussion.

Salary range:  AUD $100,000 - $120,000 package plus benefits

Location:        Melbourne OR Sydney, Australia
