Research Analyst

Hello, we’re

We’re an independent, award-winning, design-focused creative agency.

We work with high profile, global brands such as, The Glenlivet, Havana Club & Chivas, Corona, Budweiser, Mikes Seltzer, Nature Valley, Ugg, Unicef, Danone, and a bunch of others.

We’re pretty good at what we do. In 2018 we won five Agency of The Year(s) including The Drum DADI Agency of the Year. We were also shortlisted as Campaign Independent Agency of the Year. And, this year made it onto the Campaign Mag 100 best places to work.

Next, we have our sights set on a D&AD and/or Cannes Lion this year.

There’s about 30 of us (not including the dogs) — but that number grows all the time because we’re still young, ambitious and do great work.

We’re also 70% female with a 50/50 gender split on the senior team. We proudly have 100% pay parity, and it kind of annoys us that we even have to mention that as something that’s unique within this industry.

We gladly do things differently. We ‘re super ambitious, brutally honest and always deliver.

We don’t really like the ‘Old Guard’ of advertising. Working here is hell of a lot of fun.

This is a growing agency, we’re looking for a Research Analyst who wants to be part of and help drive the next stage of growth.

We’re on the lookout for a super talent Research Analyst with 3 – 5 years experience in similar research and analytical based roles. As a research analyst at Impero you will sit as part of the strategy team working on a variety of clients and markets.

The mission of the strategy team is not only to find smart answers to client’s tough problems but to make the creative output of the agency the best it can be. Projects range from brand led strategic positioning projects to opening up new growth occasions, shopper and creative insights as well as working on new business opportunities.

The role

You will often work with a Senior Planner or Planning Director who will help distil the research further but, you will also be capable of running your own projects. Whilst much of the role relies on desk research, you will relish the opportunity to get out into the field to create your research as well as spend time presenting your thinking to clients.

Solid experience in quant and qual is ideal but, unearthing insights through a range of tools, reports to analytical platforms will be key.

Experience designing and running end-to-end research sprints that incorporate methodologies including ethnography, in-depth interviews, focus groups and quant studies will be key.

You will be a natural self-starter able to bring proactive thinking.

You will be working in a creative agency which means plenty of opportunity to inform creative thinking and work alongside creative teams generating ideas.

The type of people
we want to meet

You would have come from a classically trained research background and be a bit of all-rounder when it comes to research methods. You might know what a creative agency does but, are curious to understand how powerful insights can inform creative work.

  • Have 3-5 years minimum research experience.
  • Interested in new methods to mine for insights.
  • Comfortable leading qual groups (you might not be fully trained)
  • Are organised and self-disciplined, with an ability to multi-task consistently.
  • You will relish the opportunity to thrive in fast-paced environment
  • Are driven, motivated, and have meticulous attention to detail.
  • Have a can-do attitude and a bit of the ol’ entrepreneurial spirit.
  • Are interested in being involved in the growth of the business as a whole.

The perks of working at
Impero include

To be part of something special — this is an exciting growing agency with no board of directors, or shareholders to report to.

  • The ability to stamp your mark on an organisation – and not just be a cog in the machine.
  • Free snacks and coffee
  • Monthly breakfasts with the whole team.
  • Seasonal company parties.
  • Annual personal development plan and training budget for your own growth.
  • The love of seven rotating office dogs.
  • A ‘yes work’s important, but let’s not get too serious’ vibe.
  • A distinct lack of bureaucracy or politics.
  • Ownership over your own projects whilst enjoying an inclusive environment.
  • Beer. Gin. Wine. Rum. Whiskey. Snacks. (Working with our clients has added perks).

Final word...

This is an awesome place to work. We are in control of our own destiny. But it means we’re the only ones that can deliver it. We’re all massively ambitious and hard working. But it’s also fun.

We all get along, there is no politics, just heaps of passion. We’re the creative industry’s new guard. And it’s awesome.
