WHAT ARE YOU LIKE?

You are a talented senior qualitative researcher, planner or strategist. You are smart, ambitious, exciting and a strategic thinker. People fascinate you, as do culture, brands, advertising and strategy; you're constantly trying to understand what makes them tick.

You are a first class storyteller with the ability to apply qualitative research findings to strategic branding issues for top-tier consumer companies as well as some of the most successful and creative advertising agencies in the world.

You loathe boring presentations laden with bullet points and regurgitation of simply what’s been said. You have an appreciation for the power of ideas and concepts brought to life visually.

Importantly you can balance the 'research geek' in you with an entrepreneurial spirit for growing the business.

You are happy working in a creative, informal but intellectually demanding environment.

You will be fully supported by a well-developed project management team, back office support team, film team and a very ambitious group of qualitative researchers who delight in getting on planes to run research all over the world.
