Research Executive/ Senior Research Executive

Johannesburg, South Africa.

Package & Remuneration: Industry Leading

Verve is hiring!

Verve is “The Artificial Intelligence, Human and Cultural understanding business”.

We take the ‘three intelligences’ and apply them across our three AI Augmented practice areas of Insight Communities, Insight Consultancy, Culture & Futures and one game-changing AI product- Verve Intelligent Personas.

We’re growing our high performing insight team. South African team members are fully integrated into account teams for our clients in Europe, North America and Australia, as well as working with our multi-national African client base as this grows.

We are looking to bring on board more local talent across all levels, and as part of this we’ll be hiring several Research Executives and Senior Research Executives who are experienced in traditional quantitative and qualitative research methods, or have stronger experience in one of these approaches and are... looking to put in the time and effort to learn new skills and become stronger researchers.

In turn, we’ll provide you with the opportunity to work on major global accounts including Samsung, DeBeers jewellers, H&M, John Lewis, Bacardi, Kraft Heinz, Shell and many others.

What we offer:
• The opportunity to develop your career in an AI-empowered insight team on large global accounts within an entrepreneurial, can-do team environment where everyone is empowered to be all that they can be
• Direct involvement on projects with colleagues across Verve; excellent on the job training as well as enjoying the feeling of being a central member of each account team you work on
• Competitive salary and bonus package aimed to attract the best in the industry and therefore, enable you to work alongside and learn from/with the best in the industry
• A truly multi-cultural environment. We believe in building a culture that is supportive, friendly and social, and this is true in all our local teams
• A flexible working model, with a vibrant physical hub in Rosebank at the centre of it. The local team attends the hub 2 – 3 times per week

You will have…
• Degree level education
• 2-3 years of full-service market research experience, gained within an agency environment
• Enthusiasm for delivering great insight, ambition to progress and a passion to be involved in building client relationships
• An interest in using leading-edge AI within insight projects
• Good time and project management skills: overseeing project milestones and proactively communicating updates to team and client
• Experience with analysis software packages (in particular, Q) is highly desirable. In the absence of this, an understanding of data structures and willingness to learn new software (at speed) is a must!
• Competent report-writing skills, starting to create stories independently
• Experience across a range of industry sectors
• Experience working in an environment with a lot of pace, responsive to ever-changing client needs, iterative working and juggling multiple responsibilities at once
• Working with online methods and tools advantageous, although quick learners with more traditional experience are encouraged to apply

We’re confident our offer stands apart from others in market, and so we’re looking for stand out candidates!

We want to hear from you if you feel inspired and motivated by the opportunity we’ve described
