Job description


Senior Research Manager – Arts, Culture and Heritage Insights

Manchester (Hybrid, 2 office days) £40 – 50,000 + good benefits

This global insights and strategy consultancy helps cultural organisations, heritage groups and charities groups drive stronger connections with their audiences.

With an international footprint, they have offices in the UK, USA, NZ & Australia, they have an amazing mixture of clients, from art galleries and theatres to museums, cultural communities, and local charities.

Their team of 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.

Based in their Manchester Head Office, you'll partner with clients, delivering insights to help them connect more people more deeply with their cause. As a full-service researcher with a quantitative leaning, your key responsibilities will be far-ranging from; client and project management, developing research methodologies and conducting primary research (i.e., questionaries, online communities, and ethnography observations) to delivering final reports and presentations. Partnering closely with Directors, you'll have 1:1 mentoring and exposure to accelerate further your capabilities in client management, storytelling, and exposure to innovative research methods.

We're looking for someone that can do beyond data analysis and find solutions that drive impact on an emotional level. Driven by curiosity to understand what makes people tick when it comes to art and culture, you'll constantly be asking and solving human-driven questions.

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 – mainly bespoke ad-hoc pieces of work.  To succeed you will have prior agency market research experience, be adept at working with both quantitative and qualitative data, and have a keen eye for detail, design, and visualisation, fuelled by a desire to enrich people's experiences.

What makes this role so attractive:

  • It's strategic, impactful insights consulting

  • Fascinating mixed methods projects

  • The boutique agency feel, within a global organisation offering the best of both worlds

  • Meaningful work aiming to make the world a better place

  • Opportunity to travel and meet clients globally

  • The opportunity to partner with amazing cultural, arts and heritage clients
