Senior Research Executive/ Research Manager


3 years + experience in quantitative or qualitative research


Central London

The Senior Research Executive roles:

The Big Picture is growing thanks to our recent investment in developing our quant offering in order to offer a wider range of research solutions for our clients. This means that we’re looking for a strong SRE or RM, who has a desire to work across mixed methodologies. You’ll play a crucial role in continuing our growth by providing strong support at each stage of our quant, qual and mixed methodology projects. In return, we’ll train you in the areas that you’re looking to gain more experience in, give you exposure to a variety of projects and provide the opportunity to work with market leading brands.


To be considered for this role, you will be one of the following:

  • A quant specialist looking to develop their qual experience;
  • A qual specialist who wants some exposure to quant projects; or
  • Already experienced in both and enjoying the variety this provides.

Either way, you will already be established in a research agency, with experience of working and actively contributing at every stage of a research project. You should be skilled at overseeing the day-to-day running of a project, as well as liaising with clients and suppliers.

You will be encouraged to hit the ground running and play a pivotal role in the team from the outset – supporting Project Leads from project inception through to delivery.
