Director of Innovation

Our client is an insight driven, brand and business growth consultancy with a strong and growing base of global clients. An ambitious and entrepreneurial consultancy, their unique approach is winning them a plethora of new cross sector clients. 

  • In this role we are ideally looking for someone grounded in insights (respects insight, can identify an insight, can do qual and/or quant or some form of strategic data synthesis to develop insights), your passion and experience stretch beyond this into either INNOVATION or a similar consequence of insight. 
  • You must be sufficiently competent and experienced to immediately captivate clients and generate trust – sharp thinkers only need apply ie immediate ability to create confidence and belief with senior clients.
  • But also a real DOER (their business isn’t big enough to carry thinkers alone!)  
  • If your Superpower is Innovation, for instance, we would expect that you can create innovation processes/approaches, and have a proven track record of implementing these with evidence of strong client feedback/relationships or success stories. 

Responsibilities might then include things like:

  • Developing innovation IP and leading this with clients (product or service or experience innovation) Workshop facilitation (both offline and digital) Be able to create great stimulus to use in these forums (and in research generally) Be experienced in trends, culture or context exploratory work

Typically, they look for stand-out candidates with the ‘wow’ factor who can meld and support with their existing team and enrichen and extend its capabilities.

Flexible working (you can live anywhere); autonomous worker, but also good team player; they value diversity & passion, foreign languages always a bonus, but not essential, design capabilities would be a brilliant strength to have.
