About the company

This is an award-winning strategic consultancy that solves challenges for clients through the 
powerful combination of human understanding, inspiring insight and commercial acumen. 
This combination of passion for humanity and inspiring commercial advice is applied to all of the 
engagements across our three practice areas: Research, Planning and Strategy, unlocking opportunity 
for clients to grow. 
Every client challenge is tackled with a consulting approach, meaning they're method neutral and 
solutions are bespoke to the task at hand – whether that’s understanding the future of a category, 
to finding headroom for growth or making tangible plans for how brands can flourish. 
They work across consumer, B2B, and healthcare audiences in FMCG, Financial Services, Technology, 
Healthcare, Retail, and Travel & Leisure sectors, with global reach through UK and US offices and 
a partner network around the world. 

The company believes in creating a culture that embraces, supports and continually seeks to achieve 
diversity in an environment where everyone feels included and heard. Every person, regardless of race, 
religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability status is 
treated as a valued member of the team. 
There is a flexible working environment focused on great work and mutual trust. It’s a culture where 
you’ll be challenged daily, collaborating with some of the industry’s best minds. And because
flexible teams are built for each project, you’ll get to work with a diverse range of colleagues, clients 
and project types. 
There is a new hybrid home-and-office model that maximises engagement to motivate and 
inspire you to do your best work. 
The company has a full social calendar, with lots of different opportunities to spend time with colleagues 
(including our summer day out, cocktail and mocktail evenings, pamper days, yoga and regular 
breakfasts). They use any excuse to have cake in the office!

workshops and debriefs, and helping clients to implement our recommendations through
