They say never work with kids or animals. Our client disagrees! They are a colourful collective from around the world united in the common goal of helping the next generation engage with the world in a meaningful way. Their multi-generational, worldwide collective of kids and families breaks all the rules of traditional research.
The role requires a skilled, organised and confident Project Director to play a critical role in helping the research team run international and domestic projects smoothly and efficiently. You will be a key part of a small team reporting into the Senior Operations Director to assist the researchers/strategists in ensuring project milestones are met and projects are carefully planned and executed within budget.
You will liaise with internal teams, domestic and international partners to set up projects and aid with pitches and proposals. At times, you will be in a client facing role, playing a key part in projects which have many moving parts, to keep the client informed of the logistics and operations of the project.
Applying creative thinking principles to the entire project management process is key to continually find new and innovative ways to support research execution and ensure high project standards.
To summarise, your role will be varied and will include:
- Project & Field Management
- Freelance Staff Management in the UK and USA
- Costings & Job Reconciliation
- Suppliers & Third Party Management
They work on both qual and quant projects but have a quant team that they out-source. There is some liaising with the quant team in terms of costs, passing on info, etc but very light touch.
