The role:

The role has specific focus on “insights” (combining primary research with customer data, analytics and technology) and will suit a researcher that is comfortable with every stage of a research project from the pitching to final insights delivery. As a Research Director, you will be expected to have end-to-end ownership of the client lifecycle, from originating new opportunities, leading pitches/proposals, to overseeing accounts and long-term relationships. The majority of clients you will manage will be from large financial services businesses, including retail banks, insurance brands, fintech brands & investment banks. This role will require an individual that is confident and capable of building lasting meaningful relationships.

We’ll be looking for someone with a strong commercial outlook and considerable knowledge within the financial services sector (with strong interest in investment banks, digital/ mobile banking, payment and credit/loans ). You will be actively contributing towards thought leadership and acting as a publicly acknowledged expert for insights. The key to this role is understanding what the client needs and delivering this consistently.

If you have:

  • Demonstrated the ability to deliver actionable insights with significant benefit to clients
  • The ability to develop and mentor a team to your high standards of research
  • Demonstrated the ability to work with senior stakeholders
  • Driven innovation and push insights right to the top of the table
  • Strong quantitative and qualitative research skills
  • Financial services sector experience (with FINTECH exposure)

 

A really nice meaty role with lots of scope for progression with a lot of flexible approach towards the way we work. We want to hear from you.
