Research Manager
Research Manager | Professional Services | Newcastle upon Tyne

My client is a young, dynamic research business built to deliver client-led research
programmes that transform their clients' businesses. They work largely in the legal and
property sectors and their clients include UK based plc's, international law firms and the
NHS. This role is a key part of their strategic growth plan, and finding the right person to
join the team will be instrumental in their ongoing growth strategy

As Research Manager you will take responsibility for managing client projects and team
members/sub-contractors from involvement in the proposal through to debrief (with
support from a Director).
Having a good level of knowledge across different qualitative and quantitative
methodologies is desirable but not essential, as training will be provided. Candidates
with experience of designing, managing or commissioning research such as customer
satisfaction or experience, brand audits, employee satisfaction or website evaluation
would be ideal for this role. Experience in managing team members or sub-contractors
would be preferred.
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 background, we want to talk to people who can bring a
different perspective to what they do.
The successful candidate will have:
Great project management skills
The ability to make complex information simple to digest
Interest and experience of different research methodologies e.g. face to face, telephone,focus groups, web and mobile surveys
And ideally, people and team management skills

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with ambition to get in at the ground level in a rapidly expanding business, with opportunity to develop and progress as the business develops. You'll also enjoy access to an excellent corporate benefits package.
