Ipsos Strategy3, a leading brand, marketing and innovation consultancy, is seeking a driven, self-motivated Engagement Manager to join our team of entrepreneurial thinkers who are looking to change the marketing landscape for our clients.
Our Engagement Managers play a key role in delivering on our client engagements, assisting in executive interviews, conducting primary and secondary research, preparing deliverables, and crafting compelling storylines to clients such as such as Target, Starbucks, Merrill, AB InBev, Cigna and Uber. As part of our client service teams, you will be working both laterally and vertically with our team of Partners, Engagement Managers, and Consultants to ensure that our ideas are flawlessly presented and inspiring to both our clients and the marketing community. Critically important will be your ability to build relationships, not only internally with the Strategy3 team, but across Ipsos more broadly and of course with our clients. Typical engagements include developing brand strategies, segmenting customer audiences, understanding consumer journeys, envisioning future growth pathways, and guiding innovation strategy.
You will join a unique team of whole-brain thinkers who come from backgrounds as diverse as market research, brand management, consulting, finance, design, and start-ups-all of whom come together with a diversity of ideas to transform the consulting services industry. We have seen double-digit growth for the past several years, and have expanded our global presence, opening and expanding offices in the US, London, Shanghai, Paris, Beijing, and more. This growth will allow you unparalleled access, early in your career, to leading marketing thinkers, clients, and brands, while providing you fantastic opportunity to take on leadership challenges.
The ideal candidate will bring both analytical & creative skills to bear on our client's problems: someone who is as comfortable working in Excel as they are binge watching the latest series and making a case for why their favorite season is indeed the best. Our approach to solving problems requires that level of fluidity, comprehensiveness, confidence, and executive presence.
Undergraduate degree; MBA preferred
6-8 years of professional experience: preferably in branding/marketing, management consulting, brand management, or market research
Strong project management skills and ability to juggle multiple projects
Demonstrated leadership skills, including bringing clarity to ambiguous situations
Ability to work cross-functionally, with a solid understanding of market research
Ease and confidence with "thinking on your feet"
Strong business acumen and critical thinking skills
Confidence outlining proposals (with support from executive team) in response to client RFPs
Ability to develop and adjust project approaches & frameworks as fit for various projects
Love of, and nose for, brands, marketing, and innovation
Impeccable interpersonal and communication skills, written and verbal
Enormous personal impact and executive presence
Ability to lead, mentor, and manage junior team members while serving as a "culture add"- we're not looking for people who "fit our mold"; rather, we want to bring on team members who will mold our culture by pushing us to think in new ways
In addition to those qualifications, one of the key things we have in common is the ability to tie together disparate pieces of information (from social media, from census data, from keen observation) into a compelling story, and tell it in a way that is engaging and memorable.
Oh, and being able to laugh at yourself will take you far with us.
In addition to sending your resume, we'd appreciate your sharing an answer to the following question: In 250 words or less, please tell us about a brand or organization you would like to work with as a brand strategy consultant and why.
