Associate Director, Research Practice

In a nutshell

We are looking for an enthusiastic, energetic, qual-focused Associate Director to join our growing team. If you are an experienced qual Research Manager or Senior Research Manager looking for a new challenge, or you are a current Associate Director looking for a new opportunity in our exciting new consultancy, then we need you.

Your skills & experience

You will have at least 6 years’ agency experience, working across a range of sectors and clients, and have excellent research, communication, and client management skills.  You will have experience – and a keen interest – in leading edge approaches, but also be well versed in the ‘classics’.  Your team trust you, and you will have the respect of your peers.  But you want more.

The role

We need an Associate Director to support the growth of our qual team.  As well as being an excellent, inspiring line manager, you will manage, design and deliver research projects across a broad range of sectors and clients, both UK-based and international. Yonder’s current qual client roster includes BT, Greene King, Oxford University Press, Macmillan, CRUK, Southern water, O2/Virgin, CCW, Total Fitness, Primark and many more.   

You will have a leading role across the entire project lifecycle, from writing proposals and supporting pitches through to writing and presenting engaging debriefs. You will use a range of qualitative research approaches and techniques, from focus groups and moderation through to online communities, life-logging and social media analysis. You will develop client relationships and will work closely with the new business team to uncover new business opportunities.  

What Yonder can offer you

Yonder has a real buzz as we continue to grow. We reward people who help to drive that growth and the company supports and encourages new ideas which will add value. You will have the opportunity to get involved in and work with different areas of our business, from innovation and brand strategy, to behavioural science and analytics, placing you in the best position to develop your career. We offer a competitive salary, 28 days holiday (plus your birthday day off!), a 5% employer pension contribution, life assurance and other benefits like flexible working and 4pm finishes on Fridays etc.
