Quantitative Associate Director / Research Director

£60k - £75k + package | London |  Market Research & Business Intelligence, Market research agency/consultancy |  Permanent  | Ref:889098

The Role

Quantitative Associate Director / Research Director - Creative Market Research Agency - Central London - £60k - £75k package


The Company

Our client is an Italian owned market research company that specialises in the pharmaceutical sector. Established over 10 years ago with two offices in Italy, the company opened their first UK office back in 2014. They have since gone from strength to strength, focusing on quality and innovation and building long lasting client relationships

They offer the full spectrum of research methodologies and survey techniques, from the traditional to the innovative across multiple markets worldwide.


The Role

Due to continued expansion, my client is looking to recruit a new Director to join the team in the UK:

  • You will focus on quantitative methods as a specialism, but will still be involved in mixed method projects, working closely with the UK and Italian teams.
  • You will be responsible for both the management of research projects, and also for guiding and leading a small team of researchers
  • As a senior member of the team, you will work closely with clients, forging long term relationships and will provide exceptional account management
  • You will have a say in company strategy and how to win new business



Ideally you will be well established at the Associate Director level, or will have recently been promoted to Research Director, with a background in ad hoc market research.

  • Agency experience is a must and a background in pharma or OTC healthcare would be preferred.
  • Excellent client-facing skills are vital as well as a strong understanding of quantitative methods and analysis.
  • Knowledge of qualitative would also be advantageous.


What should you do next?

This role is one not to be missed. To discuss further, please submit your current CV. Unless otherwise stated, if applying for a job within the European Union, you must ensure that you are already authorised to work there. Carrot Pharma Recruitment Ltd acts as an Employment Business and an Employment Agency on behalf of our client in recruitment for this role.

Which team and area do you work/specialise in?

I work in our market research and consulting team, specialising in senior vacancies within both pharma companies and external agencies

What are some of the typical roles you cover?

The roles I cover range from Associate and Research Directors, Senior Consultants and Business Intelligence Managers and Directors. I also cover C-suite roles.

What are the hot issues in your sector currently?

We’re seeing a real shift from ‘traditional’ market research agencies who are recognising the need to provide more than just research solutions for their clients. In a marketplace that is becoming increasingly  competitive, the ability to stay ahead of the curve and provide more consultative, insightful, actionable solutions covering the whole marketing mix is paramount.

What’s makes you #DistinctlyDifferent?

I don’t give up easily and I’m very detail orientated – love a good spreadsheet!
