Research Director; quant; mix of private sector, social & government clients – Melbourne

Flow Recruitment
March 16, 2021
Melbourne, Australia
Job Type


This has all the markings of a super role.   Already ‘well in’ with Australian Federal and State Government departments, this highly skilled research team are looking to hire a Research Director to keep up with the pace of growth.

A Research Directors role is to engage with clients across commercial, social & government sectors, leverage existing relationships, be on top of new requests for research, write compelling proposals and retain the programs of research already in play.

You will be in good company, joining three other researchers at this level, reporting to a Partner.  A big component is programs (phase after phase) work, so you will need established quant skills, ideally from a social & government background.  The work is varied so adhoc consulting (quant qual) experience will be highly regarded.

Outside of Government research, you will also get the chance to help some of the world’s best-known brands solve a variety of business, strategy, communication and growth challenges.  Research projects include brand strategy, segmentation and profiling, product and service innovation, campaign testing & development and brand and communication tracking.

We are looking for a Research Director who is outcome focussed, passionate about shaping, growing and raising the profile of the team, with their own ambition and self-belief to push for Senior Director level in 1-2 years’ time.

With a great body of work already underway, this really is an excellent role for a technically sound quantitative or mixed methods Researcher who prefers leveraging a strong client base rather than developing ‘new’ business.  You will have the backing of a global brand, junior researchers, and a tuned-in and connected leadership team.
