Do you want to play a key role in a fast growing company, where you can make a real difference and are not just a number?

Are you a highly organised person who enjoys managing multiple projects?

Do you get a buzz from presenting to senior stakeholders?

Can you create long-term partnerships with clients as well as business growth?

If so, you might be a great fit for this company and vice versa.

This small, entrepreneurial company's vision is to be the world's most innovative provider of employee feedback solutions.

Their client base already includes blue-chip companies like McDonald's, O2 and the Financial Times and they've grown at least 50% every year since they were founded in 2011.

They're looking for an ambitious and determined Research Manager, primarily based in their new Milton Keynes office, but travelling 1-2 days a week for client meetings.

Reporting directly into the company's Founder and CEO, you'll play a key role and directly influence their strategy.

What you'll be doing…

- Leading employee survey projects for a diverse range of clients from different sectors
- Demonstrating expert knowledge of employee engagement
- Acting as a trusted advisor to help clients get maximum value from their surveys
- Leading project teams and data analysts to develop compelling insight
- Communicating complex recommendations through board level presentations
- Growing trusted client relationships over time
- Inputting into new innovations, such as action planning tools and real-time feedback

What you need…

- A bachelor's degree is required
- Experience within an account management role, consulting environment or as part of an internal term serving the needs of a large organisation
- Employee engagement or research experience is not essential, but desirable
- A valid UK driving licence
- Excellent presentation skills
- Customer service / client relationship building skills
- Proven ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously
- An analytical mind
- Energy and enthusiasm
- Able to work in a small team and independently

This is a demanding and equally rewarding position that creates personal growth while helping their clients succeed. You will have the opportunity to making a lasting difference to both the organisation and its clients.

The salary and package includes:

- Salary: £32,000 - £45,000 (depending upon your experience)
- 24 days' holiday plus bank holidays and your birthday off
- Company pension
- Excellent career prospects within a fast growing company
- Extensive training and professional development opportunities

They are eager to find the very best talent for this role. Please send your CV if you think this could be your next career move.

Interviews will take place in late January.

They look forward to hearing from you.
