Time Commitment: Part-Time/Contracted
Location: Remote/New York City, NY
Job Description: Are you obsessed with Gen Z culture? Do you enjoy asking hard hitting questions and analyzing the data? Do you find yourself thinking about consumer insights and reading research for fun? This is the perfect job for folks with writing, research, and press experience that love all things Gen Z. Research Research Project Leads are the project leader for research contracts. Fundamentally, this role requires someone who has strong writing and data management skills (qual and quant) — and because much of our research work is in partnership with PR teams, having strong copy-writing skills and/or press experience is a huge plus. They are also exceptional organizers, brainstormers, managers, problem solvers and communicators — with their team, their client, and JUV Senior Leadership. Their ability to create and conduct strong research processes while managing a team efficiently and communicating to the client effectively is a challenging balance, and therefore they are incredibly key to a contract’s success.
Responsibilities: Research Project Leads are ultimately responsible for the success of the projects they are leading. The consistent responsibilities of the Research Project Leads will be leading internal/external calls, communicating with clients and JUV team members, creating and following a timeline, leading research work, creating strong analyses and insights for clients, and creating decks, reports, and other deliverables for client needs. After the completion of a contract, the Senior Partner will be in charge of providing and collecting feedback from the team and client on areas of growth as well as pitching new ideas based on the project as a means of continuing work with the client.
