Do you have 4 to 5 years experience as a qual researcher? Are you looking for a new opportunity where you can have genuine input in shaping the growth and development of a company? Magenta are looking for a new member to join their small but growing team.

The Role:

We’re looking for someone to be a key member of the team as we continue to grow, and being part of a small team you will be involved in all aspects of the business. On a daily basis, you will lead the design and execution of research projects; contribute to proposals; and work with the team to create new business opportunities. You will also be expected to contribute to the growth of some of our key clients through delivering impactful outputs that lead to repeat business.

The Person:

We’re looking for someone who is constantly curious; able to demonstrate strategic thinking, willing to step out of their comfort zone; with a desire to be the best that they can be. You will need to be hard working, flexible, and willing to work both independently and collaboratively. You should have experience in all aspects of research from design, delivery, project management and client management.

About Magenta:

Set up three years ago, Magenta is a rapidly growing global strategic insight agency. We work with a variety of clients across media; FMCG; retail; and with some of the UK’s leading charities. Clients range from new and exciting start-ups trying to find their way, through to multi-national companies looking at understanding the customer journey, establish behaviour change, develop customer loyalty or introduce new technology. We use the full range of methodologies, sometimes developing our own approaches to best suit the project need.

Magenta was shortlisted as a finalist for this years’ MRS/ICG Independents’ Day award for the impact we’ve had in supporting one of our clients to move from a transactional offer to strategic thought leaders. You can read more about that here:

We are passionate about what we do; love discovering insights that excite our clients; are supportive; and look after our employees. We offer a competitive salary, flexible working, pension, and a share of company profits based on performance.
