Senior Qualitative Researcher

Permanent / Full Time
to $150,000 plus benefits


Committed to doing things differently and improving upon more conservative approaches, this fresh-thinking consultancy is looking for a seasoned qualitative researcher to join their growing team. Their unique value proposition involves taking a proactive approach to identifying issues impacting government, charities, corporations and brands and creating action-based solutions, not verbose reports.

You’ll be joining a team including strategists, behavioural scientists and insights specialists, leading complex projects that directly impact social and marketing outcomes.

Ideally, you’ll have:

  • A minimum of 8 years’ research experience, including some in a consultancy environment – with a qualitative orientation.
  • Previous experience working closely with communications specialists in the media relations, corporate affairs, government relations and/or stakeholder/community relations space or good exposure to this kind of work
  • High end-to-end project management skills (from proposal and tender writing to conducting workshops with senior stakeholders)
  • Strong client engagement and presentations skills
  • Well-honed qualitative research skills
  • Quantitative experience including an ability to transform numbers into insights (others do the analysis and data manipulation) would be beneficial
  • Experience in social and public policy research
  • Stories of successfully working collaboratively in a team

Why should I consider leaving my comfort zone?

  • Extensive training program
  • Participation in international conferences
  • Time in lieu
  • Study breaks
  • Flexible working conditions and work from home options
  • Work/life balance is at the forefront of all that they do – managing the workload of the team and of the individual team members is central to their culture.

Working in a supportive, dynamic and professional team, you will be recognised and rewarded for your efforts.
