About the company

This is a global human-first insight and innovation consultancy, that 
works with leading brands – including ABInBev, Britvic, Estée Lauder, Mondelez, 
PepsiCo, Reckitt Benckiser and Unilever.
Their deep, evidence-based understanding of what drives human behaviour – the 
core needs, wants, desires, and motivations – enables them to understand what people 
want next and identify scalable opportunities for growth. They believe the ultimate goal of innovation is to create more positive outcomes in 
the world around us. So they champion ‘Positive Innovation’ – innovating with 
people’s happiness and wellbeing in mind – with all their clients.
They are headquartered in central London, in the vibrant Fitzrovia neighbourhood, 
with an office in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and feet on the ground in New York, USA. They 
are committed to flexible working practices. Out of office working is an established 
part of our ways of working and will continue to be so post COVID - although they are 
very much looking forward to getting back to some office time with each other .
The company has a unique and collaborative culture, encouraging a diverse 
team “to be uniquely human” by celebrating and developing their specific strengths 
and talents. Even after 20 years, they maintain a strong start-up mentality, valuing 
agility, autonomy and a constant and curious quest for the new
