Our client is a global strategy and insights agency with a difference. With several offices globally, their team is comprised of researchers,  strategists, film makers and designers and together they solve clients’ brand, marketing, communications and product challenges through the use of cultural insights. Their portfolio of clients includes alcohol, fashion, food & beverage and tech brands.


We are now seeking a ‘stand out’ Director for the company’s Singapore office, who is able to push the boundaries of research and delight clients at the same time. This is a multidisciplinary role and you will be instrumental in helping the company expand its regional footprint in partnership with other offices. Our client has a unique way of working which means you’ll get the opportunity to work on a range of global projects and you will not purely work on Asia based engagements.


Key responsibilities:

  • Building new / existing client relationships, understanding their needs and offering appropriate solutions
  • Leading projects from A-Z with little or no support – from client discussions, proposal writing, through to execution and delivery
  • Running workshops with clients
  • Working on a wide range of regional and global projects


For this role we are looking for:


- 10-15+ years of experience in qualitative research, brand strategy, product innovation, design strategy (or similar fields)

- Experience working on the agency side. Some experience in house on the client-side would be highly valuable also but most have the commercial experience also

- Ability to capture the attention and trust of senior level clients

- Ability to develop relationships with new / existing clients

- Strong presenting / storytelling skills

- Regional experience (South East Asia); prior working experience in Singapore is preferred

- Fluency in English and another language (preferred)

- Ability to travel

- Comfortable working in a small business and being hands on


If you are excited to help build a business in Asia, at the same time working on global projects, this is the role for you! The package is completely negotiable for the right person as this is a new role. Please get in touch with us for more information.
