We believe the Consumer Healthcare sector provides incredibly exciting opportunities – both for consumers to be more empowered in the management of a range of health, personal-care and lifestyle outcomes, and for brands and businesses to help them to do so more effectively, through improved technologies and user experiences. We also recognise there are considerable challenges. Our innovation team works with our global Consumer Healthcare clients to help them identify strategic innovation opportunities and develop winning products and services.

As an experienced senior consultant you will work closely with the Board, and other sector and discipline leaders on targeted business development activity, to achieve challenging team targets.

About you:

  • Have a 1st or 2:1 degree in a social sciences, design, engineering or science discipline.

  • Have worked at a senior level in a well-regarded market research or innovation agency, or a large multi-national, with a demonstrable track record of managing and delivering successful consumer health sector innovation collaborations.

  • Have hands-on experience of project managing global, multi-market programmes for $bn brands.

  • Be able to balance the demands of client relationship management, business development, influencing (and where necessary, participating in) project delivery, and building capability, as appropriate.

  • An excellent track record of initiating and managing business relationships in the FMCG and Consumer Health product sector.

  • A positive and flexible temperament: happy to work both as part of a team, and independently

  • A willingness to travel internationally.

About us:

We are an employee owned company with our staff at the centre of our strategy. Employee ownership allows us to maintain full control over the direction of our business and our creative culture. Our offices are based in a beautiful rural location close to Cambridge where we offer an exciting and challenging working environment.
