Matt Goldrick

Which team do you work in?
I work in the Market Research and Business Intelligence team.

Which area do you specialise in?

I specialise in senior market research roles, working with a variety of PMR agencies and consultancies. I also work with our pharma company clients, covering market insight/business intelligence positions.

How do you keep up-to-date with the issues in your sector?

With a well established network of clients and candidates, keeping up to date with industry news is usually quite straightforward! Alongside speaking to those directly involved in the industry, I spend time browsing relevant industry websites and reading articles on LinkedIn

What's your favourite film and why?
I would probably say either the Batman Dark Knight trilogy or the Bourne Films. I think Christopher Nolan's a great director and I really like the premise of the Bourne films - I love a good conspiracy theory!

If you could invent one thing what would it be?
Maybe Bernard's Watch...?

What makes you #DistinctlyDifferent?
This is a tough one! I'm going to go for a couple of clichéd statements - my never-say-die attitude and the fact I'm the most organised recruitment consultant you'll meet. I've a folder for everything! 


The Role

Exciting UK Office Lead opportunity for experienced, ambitious Associate Director or Junior Director!

Our client is an Italian owned market research company that specializes in the medical-pharmaceutical sector. Established in 2008, with Head Quarters in Milan, the company’s priority is to guarantee quality and innovation, while working closely with their clients. They offer the full spectrum of research methodologies and survey techniques, from the traditional to the innovative, both in Italy and abroad, through partnerships with independent institutes selected for their expertise in the medical-pharmaceutical.

Our client has recently opened its first UK office in Central London and as a result we have a very exciting opportunity for an experienced, ambitious, Associate Director or Junior Director to step up to the challenge of building/leading the new team. Needless to say, this opportunity offers fantastic potential and is the sort of role which would normally be aimed at experienced/established Directors.

You will be responsible for ensuring the growth, development and management of the new UK office and for building business to achieve sales targets by developing good relationships with clients. You will also manage projects, domestic and international, write and deliver proposals and presentations, develop new research technique and manage/coach the junior members of the team.

What we are looking for:

Ideally you will be well established at the Associate Director level, or will have recently been promoted to Director, with a background within an ad hoc MR agency that specialises in the pharmaceutical sector. Excellent client-facing skills are vital as well as a background of qualitative moderation and analysis. Knowledge of quantitative MR methodologies and ability to reasoning with numbers are valuable.

What should you do next?
