Full job description

We are looking to grow our talented team of Market Research Project Managers within the Audience Measurement team at Ipsos. Audience Measurement is an entrepreneurial division, looking for highly talented individuals who are interested in being a part of a dynamic and energised team. Our Graduate Project Executives are integral to the success of our business and our clients’ businesses. We are looking for individuals who have a curiosity for problem solving, a passion for planning and organisation, and excellent communicators who are not afraid to challenge the status quo.

Project Management sits at the forefront of what we do at Ipsos – spearheading new and better ways of working across the organisation. Our team of client facing, expert Project Managers work hand in hand with the research team to find the most efficient way to plan, develop and deliver projects on time, to the required specifications and within the allocated budget.

You will work alongside a network of experienced Project Managers as part of a growing function and gain exposure to a broad mix of sectors and methodologies, with a dedicated mentor to guide you on your journey.

Role overview

As a Graduate Project Executive, you will be encouraged to take responsibility from the outset, thrown straight into working on live projects. You will gain exposure to a variety of clients and research approaches whilst working alongside experienced project managers.

We have two main projects you will be working on:

Route provides audience estimates for out of home (OOH) advertising in Great Britain. Out of home media consist of advertising frames ranging from large roadside billboards to small screens on escalators. They also include other out of home advertising frames or screens including train stations, in car parks, and panels inside shopping centres.

JNOR is the independent, industry approved audience measurement tool for outdoor campaigns in the Irish market and is the benchmark for measuring how many people will see a campaign. Results can be generated for individual outdoor formats or for multi-format campaigns.

As part of the Ipsos community, you will work closely with the research team, data team (data science and engineering) and Operations delivery teams on both projects.

Some of your core responsibilities will include:

  • Working on a range of research projects.
  • See the end-to-end project life cycle, working through timelines and costings, supporting on methodology, feasibility, quality control, and liaising with our fieldwork specialists.
  • You will learn key project management skills, such as organisational, budgeting, timekeeping, negotiation, communication and more.
  • Help manage project plans and task scheduling for the teams across our data delivery/ production cycle as well as our development cycle
  • Support the team in internal and external meetings including minuting outcomes and actively following up on actions/progress
  • Effectively utilise project management tools for project tracking and communications (MS Teams, Confluence, Trello, Azure DevOps)
  • Look at how we can improve the way we work and bring efficiencies to long standing projects.
  • Ensure client satisfaction and represent Ipsos in a professional and ethical manner at all times.

What do I need to bring with me?

  • Curiosity about different types of projects, methodologies, reporting methods, clients and industries as well as having an interest in media research
  • Ability to find creative and innovative solutions for complex and varied problems.
  • Strong interpersonal skills – the ability to communicate clearly and persuasively.
  • Outstanding attention to detail
  • Comfortable juggling different tasks, planning and using your time effectively.
  • Strong personal and team organisational skills
  • Impartiality and adaptability
  • Strong initiative, negotiation and influencing ability.
  • Being self-motivated and confident

Along with…

  • The unrestricted right to work in the UK

What is in it for me?

Our Generation Ipsos programme provides a comprehensive foundation in research and how it’s practically applied in a commercial environment. You’ll be trained in client management, project management and the nitty-gritty of research including methodologies, sampling, weighting and ethics. You’ll learn through real life, hands-on experience, webinars, seminars and specialist workshops.

We’ll provide you with dedicated training designed to achieve the industry recognised Market Research Society (MRS) Advanced Certificate accreditation. Networking is a key skill so we have Early Careers events with other Graduates, Placement Students and Interns across the company.

Having a flexible working culture where we support our colleagues and celebrate our successes is important to us. We invest our time in you and you’ll benefit from working alongside our expert teams. Your manager will help you set goals to achieve your personal objectives throughout the year and help you exceed these.

And the fun stuff …

  • 25 days’ holiday which increases over time to 30 days, plus an extra day for your birthday
  • Annual summer and All Staff events
  • Team socials, including Christmas parties
  • Season ticket loan
  • Future talent loan – an optional and interest-free loan of up to £1000 to help with any unexpected costs, so you can focus on having a great start to your career
  • Option to work abroad for up to 6 weeks across a rolling 12-month period (with the relevant Right to Work within that country)
  • A huge variety of benefits e.g. pension contributions, income protection, winter flu jabs, eye care vouchers, online and high street discounts
  • Opportunity to participate in and benefit from our multiple Diversity and Inclusion Belong groups, which bring together people with shared identities and interests to ensure that their voices are heard through the company and that Ipsos can continue to carry out research that is representative of the UK and wider world today.

Those who are successful at the application stage will be progressed to a virtual interview. The final stage will be an assessment centre held at our Thomas More Square Office in June. Therefore, please ensure you apply ASAP to ensure you have a successful chance in the process!

We are committed to equality, treating people fairly, promoting a positive and inclusive working environment and ensuring we have diversity of people and views. We recognise that this is important for our business success – a more diverse workforce will enable us to better reflect and understand the world we research and ultimately deliver better research and insight to our clients.
