Roles & Responsibilities

This opportunity is for a Research Executive or a recently promoted Senior Research Executive ready for a new challenge. The role includes a mixture of bespoke quant and qual - with a focus on Gen Z. We also run a large youth tracking study and some of your time will be focused on that too. 

Our team works with brilliant clients often looking to implement major strategic change on the basis of the advice you provide. You're not expected to be a Gen Z expert at first, but you will become one, fairly quickly. 

You will be assisting with proposals, questionnaires, reports and delivering presentations. You'll also be expected to attend debriefs, pitch meetings and build relationships with clients to manage projects efficiently. You'll also work closely with our operations team for scripting, tabulations, analytics, and visualisations. 🤗
