Who we are:

With three start-ups created every single second, the environment has never been more competitive for brands. No matter what the brand, we help them get bigger, faster.

There are two key parts to the business:

+ The Platform: We have built the world’s only brand management platform that delivers always-on brand guidance to drive growth.
+ Consulting: We have created a unique brand measurement IP which underpins both halves of the business. We deal with bigger, tailored projects.

We are run by people who have built and run hugely successful businesses. This one is disrupting both the Insight and Marketing Consultancy industries, with deep innovation in science, business model and staffing. It is full of people who want to change the experience of building brands for the better, with dedication, courage and conviction. It’s not for the feint-hearted, but it is a lot of fun.

What we do in Consulting:

Consulting is where our unique system of measurement was born. This system now forms the basis of the Platform. In Consulting, we experiment and iterate new approaches and ideas to be implemented into the Platform: essentially it is the test-bed for the rest of the business.

It’s where we create our most tailored and bespoke projects for Clients, making sure that they have strong relationships with us and get the best quality guidance on how to improve their brands. As our SaaS platform develops, our Consulting offer will also become the Platform’s premium offering. We will be trading certain Clients up from the Platform.

You would be helping to show brands how best to grow. Working together with the Project Management team, you would assist in setting up projects and creating presentations to create a narrative for the brand. It would be your responsibility to generate brand guidance based on the findings. As part of this, you would also be generating Guidance based on our findings – how a brand should action our findings in order to grow.

You would also be responsible for communicating with Clients. This includes helping to win new business, owning the project process and delivering the projects.
As we progress, we will be bringing clients from the platform and upselling them into Consulting, so you would be expected to input into the strategy and execution of this process.

+ Competence with Excel and agility in learning new technology and software systems, like Tableau.
