Research Assistant - Arts & Cultural Insights

Job description

Art is powerful and allows us to communicate and break down barriers between cultures, religions, and history. It's a form of expression that evokes emotion.
This global insights and strategy consultancy helps cultural organisations and community groups drive stronger connections with their audiences.  
With an international footprint, they have offices in the UK, USA, NZ & Australia. And partner with an amazing mixture of clients, from art galleries and theatres to museums, dance studios, cultural communities, and local charities. Sydney Opera House, Shakespeare's Globe, National Gallery of Victoria, and the Tate (to name a few!)
The team of 40+ researchers, strategists and behavioural consultants spend their days listening to people from all walks of life, understanding how they see the world, and translating this into recommendations that inform experiences that create a shared language between organisations and their audiences. From testing layouts for new galleries, exhibition evaluations, and understanding visitor behaviours to cultural segmentation studies and emotional brand equity, their projects are exceptionally varied – complex ongoing trackers and bespoke ad-hoc pieces.
The position: Research Assistant
Joining the lovely growing Sydney team, you'll develop a strong foundational base in research skills and consulting and have exposure to all elements of the research process. The team is small, agile, and flexible, with uncapped room to grow. This is a unique role for a researcher at the start of their career that wants to fast-track their progression with a desire to support cause-led organisations and a love for the arts! Your days will be an accumulation of:
  • Qualitative research – contributing to designing qual discussion guides, qualitative recruitment, insight generation, storytelling and finding nuggets of wisdom in words
  • Quantitative research – data management, analysis, cleaning, coding, charting, supporting questionnaire design and report writing.
  • Project management – managing diaries, schedules, and projects, ensuring everything is delivered on time and to budget: client management, supporting proposals, and general administration support to the ANZ team.
It's expected that you'll have +12 months of market research experience gained within a qualitative or quantitative capability coupled with a curious mind, a desire to learn and a passion for problem-solving.
What makes this role so unique?
  • It's strategic, impactful, and deeply meaningful insights
  • 100% remote working (work from anywhere in Australia!)
  • Genuine flexibility – start and finish when works for you
  • 22 days annual leave + amazing benefits
  • You'll use your left and right brain through the application of qual and quant research
  • The boutique agency feels, within a global organisation offering the best of both
