In a nutshell
We are looking for an enthusiastic and curious Senior Consultant to work for our Research Practice on corporate affairs and government-focussed research projects for a range of interesting and high-profile public and private sector clients. If you are a Consultant with experience in using data/research to inform corporate, reputational, or political strategy, and you have a strong interest in current affairs and social/political/economic trends, then we would like to hear from you.
Your skills & experience
You would have been a mixed-methodology Consultant (or equivalent), and are ready to step into a Senior Consultant role. You have a broad range of interests, are curious about how the business world works and follow the current affairs and political trends that influence it. You demonstrate outstanding written and verbal skills, can be trusted to manage projects independently, and have excellent attention to detail. You can creatively apply research to business challenges and use your initiative to grow, develop and learn.
You will spend most of your time using research to find answers to our clients’ questions or solve their problems, such as ‘how can I understand and respond to wider political / social / commercial trends?’, ‘how can I best achieve a policy objective?’, ‘how can I achieve a specific business/commercial objective’? or ‘how can I run an effective public campaign?’.
You will lead research projects focussed on issues relating to strategy and communications for public and private sector clients. These research projects may focus on public opinion, stakeholder opinion (e.g. MPs, national journalists, leaders of influential third sector organisations, etc.), demographic analysis, or other forms of data. You will lead in writing up, visualising, and presenting findings.
On most projects you will work closely with a Director, while in some smaller projects you will have final responsibility for the project and its outputs. In both cases you will oversee and manage the work of more junior members of staff. It is essential that you are able to take the lead in managing projects, taking responsibility for delivering client work to the highest standard. You will also support and/or lead on new business proposals, and will be expected to have the expertise to design projects and think creatively about how to meet client objectives.
You will also have an interest in other things that we do and offer from brand strategy to advanced data analytics and design.
