About Research & Strategy
The Research & Strategy Team is part of Portland’s SPARC unit (Strategy, Planning, Analytics, Research + Creative) which is a multidisciplinary team that develops impactful and creative strategies rooted in robust insights.
The team conducts primary and secondary research to support the public relations and communications work of Portland. In creating the best strategies for reaching the public or influencing key stakeholders, we use primary research methods from online surveys, to focus groups or online communities to find out what people believe and how best to speak to them. Our unit is growing fast and needs a promising researcher to join the team (you’ll be joining a specialist team of 10 within a wider business of c.300).
You will join the team as an Associate Consultant – which, in research agency terms, translates as a Senior Research Executive (SRE) with at least 18 months’ experience. The role will involve both quantitative and qualitative work, so you should be comfortable with both.
In combination with your research skills, you will need to be adept at thinking strategically and enjoy helping internal teams put our research to good use for many different types of clients.
