Client Details

It's research Jim but not as we know it!

Maybe what Scotty would say on seeing this role, sadly we'll never know

What we do know is this role takes research to new levels...


This business have it all. Literally. This means the fullest suite of end to end marketing excellence outside of London. Great creative, loyal clients and a strong, supportive culture that often goes under the radar...

The core of their success however is their strategic brain. A 30 strong group of planners, strategists, researchers, analysts, writers who find the nuggets that shape everything they do.

Everything here starts with the thinking and an unrelenting pursuit of something unique.


This is where this role comes in.

In title you'll be a research director or head of research with a quantitative bias but in practice you'll apply this in a much broader sense.

You'll have a strong mixed methodology tool kit but relish the thought of doing more.

After all research here isn't just presenting findings it's proper partnership with clients seeing findings and recommendations shape creative thinking, brand building and generally being brought to life.

It lives and breathes here and seeing the impact it makes on a brand and how behaviours are changed is an everyday occurrence.

Clients look for the bigger picture so your role is helping them to see it all, working with the right project team across the agency to ensure findings lead to stand out creative that works

Now this role isn't for everyone. But if you're curious, obsessed, committed to using quantitative research techniques to drive brand thinking, this could be for you.


As the Research Director for this west midlands agency you'll currently be in a leadership role in either a top market research agency or possibly playing a similar role in a full service outfit. Either way this unique challenge will excite, scare but compel you to find out more
