the role

What will you be doing?

As a Research Manager you will be the principal point of contact for clients, and take responsibility for projects from proposal to debrief (with support from a Project Lead).

Having a good level of knowledge across different quantitative methodologies is essential, e.g. pricing, range/concept testing, advertising, usage and attitude, customer satisfaction/experience/loyalty, employee, website evaluation, etc.

Demonstrating the core skills in quantitative research design and analysis are also essential, with an ability to utilise trends and secondary research throughout the process.

If you have a real interest in bringing data to life, visual storytelling and a passion for working in research then we would love to hear from you. And don’t worry if you don’t have a traditional research agency-side background, we want to talk to people who can bring a different perspective to what we do.

What will you bring?

  • Great client handling skills
  • The ability to make the most complex information simple to digest & impossible to ignore
  • Account development skills
  • Interest in innovative methodologies e.g. communities, mobile surveys, ethnography
  • Enjoy a fast paced environment
  • And ideally, people and team management skills

A lot of our growth over recent years has been in our international offer and so experience with international market research is an advantage.

What’s in it for you? 

We’re based in the heart of the Northern Quarter in Manchester, surrounded by cool bars and restaurants and are about a 7 minute walk from Piccadilly Gardens. On top of that we offer corporate benefits such as an excellent pension scheme, season ticket loan, 25 days holiday and an employee perk portal for saving on high street stores and wellbeing packages.

Fancy a chat?

We’re keen to find the right person as soon as possible so will be interviewing as and when applications come in. If you’d like more information or would like to apply, email your CV and the job title to Jodie at hr@jointhedotsmr.com.
