We are looking for a Group Account Director to lead our team in Auckland.  We are particularly looking for someone who understands the power of qualitative insights to add human warmth and insight as we navigate an increasingly machine-led world.  This is an opportunity to apply world class research and consultancy techniques to a range of projects that make a big difference to our clients.  You will take ownership of a portfolio of clients and take responsibility for their success, by turning insightful research and smart thinking into inspirational outcomes. 

We are looking for a consultant, skilled at managing a portfolio of clients with a minimum 7 years’ experience, preferably with qualitative experience in an agency environment.  You will be focused on applying an innovative and creative approach to identifying business problems, developing solutions to solve those problems, pitching, reporting and presenting exceptional research findings. Strategic thinking, a collaborative mindset, analytical capability, qualitative experience and communication skills are important. 

As team leader you will also be responsible for mentoring and collaborating with other team members.  We are looking for someone who can bring energy, forward thinking and inspiration to a group of experienced individuals.  Someone who can grow the collective capability of the qualitative discipline and encourage the team to deliver the best possible outcomes for clients.

In return we offer a welcoming, creative and flexible workplace which celebrates success and offers scope for career growth. And you get to work at the highest profile insights company in the country.  We offer a stimulating and social work environment supported by a wellness programme.   As a business we believe that we can genuinely create a better future for our clients and their customers through the insights we provide.
