Research Manager - Global Sports & Entertainment Group

Job description

To £42,000; London/Hybrid working

Huge opportunity for a Research Manager (quantitative) to join the ad hoc/custom research arm of this global sports, media & entertainment giant.

As part of its research, insights & analytics division which acts almost an internal agency for the entire group, as a Research Manager you'll contribute a developing custom market research offering and get to work on international projects. These will be centred on concept testing and pricing; you'll be involved end to end and your clients will be the group's related agencies, and be supported by a developing team of researchers and co-managers. That said you will get some external client exposure too. More than that, you'll be at the forefront of building a custom research offering to complement the insight and analytics teams already in place.

Ideally you'll already have research agency experience to Senior Research Executive/Research Manager level. You'll need to be versed in primary quantitative research methods, have used tools such as SPSS, R or Q, and have expertise in survey platforms, plus be a confident presenter/insight storyteller. Some client side experience, plus interest in the sector is also valuable - but to stress this is almost an agency role within client side so it ideally calls for those with current/prior research agency experience using primary methods as opposed to 'analysts'. It's a great move for a route into client side too!

Overall this is a great opportunity for a Research Manager if you love sport, media & entertainment and would love a custom/ad hoc research based client side move; there are few, if any, bigger names than this within this field. There's hybrid working, and an opportunity to play a huge role in developing this service which in turn will see you make more and more of a strategic difference!
