Overview: <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>About the role</strong></span> <br /><br />We&rsquo;re seeking a driven Qualitative Senior Research Manager with a passion for client management and a desire to lead. As a senior-level leader, you&rsquo;ll wear many hats&mdash;you&rsquo;ll conduct research, manage projects, and mentor your team&mdash;while working closely with Fortune 500 clients and in partnership with LRW department leaders. We believe you&rsquo;re only as strong as your team, and we&rsquo;re looking for a new team member who is energized by growing, developing, and inspiring others! Here you will set your sights on personal and group development&mdash;whether that means growing your team, becoming a director, or running your own business unit. Your success is our success.<br /><br /><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>About us</strong></span> <br /><br />We are a fast-growing market research firm with an entrepreneurial culture. We&rsquo;ve spent the past 40 years using analytics and research to help businesses understand their customers, and we work across industries in more than 80 countries with some of the largest brands in the world. We value diverse perspectives and believe that different voices and viewpoints make us stronger! We&rsquo;re also proud to have a helpful and encouraging culture, where we take time to celebrate accomplishments both large and small. And while we&rsquo;re grounded in our rich history, we never stop searching for new approaches and tools; we were named the #1 Most Innovative Insights Firm in North America by the GRIT Report in 2019. With offices around the world, our 500+ teammates work across a dozen business units, collaborating with clients in entertainment and media, pharmaceuticals, technology, consumer packaged goods and more. Our experienced leadership team offers stability and structure, while our dedication to innovation fosters groundbreaking initiatives that help us improve our research approaches&mdash;like our Pragmatic Brain Science teams, who explore new psychological frameworks to better understand customer motivations.&nbsp;

With an abundance of internal resources, you&rsquo;ll have the support you need to focus on your areas of expertise.</li> </ul>
Requirements: About you <ul> <li>You want to grow your career as a manager&mdash;maybe you&rsquo;ve managed a bit in the past and hope to continue building that skill.</li> <li>You&rsquo;ve conducted market research, and your curiosity and determination to dig in to understand an occurrence or observation and draw out rich insights. And you double-check the details.</li> <li>You have the passion to experiment outside of your comfort zone, especially when it makes your team stronger and helps you all learn.</li> <li>You thrive in collaboration with others and can also self-motivate and self-manage when the job calls for it.</li> <li>You understand that managing sometimes means taking on a range of different tasks to help the group succeed.</li> <li>You keep your team and projects on track. You have passion and skills for prioritizing, delegating, and sticking to a timeline, and when priorities shift, you have the confidence to make strategic decisions and manage multiple projects and deadlines at once.</li> <li>You&rsquo;re an analytical, strategic problem solver with strong eye for business, and you want to keep stretching and developing those parts of your brain.</li> <li>You know how to foster and create a delightful client experience, and you handle the ups and downs of client work with enthusiasm.</li> <li>You&rsquo;ve earned a Bachelor&rsquo;s or Master&rsquo;s in social sciences, business, economics, or a related field.</li> </ul>
