Innovation Strategist (Insight & Proposition) – up to £60K plus Shares – London

My client has just received seed funding from one of the hottest (and quite hard to impress) VCs! That coupled with their cool AI platform that revolutionises market insights and presents it with a creative edge. They are now recruiting for their first few key hires.

Their technology uses an inventive combination of machine learning and beautiful data visualisation, they tap into a wealth of information that already exists on the web and helps companies stay ahead of their competition by providing innovative research!

Why on earth wouldn’t you want to be a part of this?

We’re looking for an Innovation Strategist to be the expert user of the brand’s market insights tool and work closely with clients to understand their market insight needs and use cases. You’ll be responsible for handling the delivery of client projects and interpreting the insights surfaced by the company into actionable insights for the client. Ultimately, you will be working with them to create their innovation strategy and roadmap!

The ideal candidate is a natural creative thinker with a background in innovation and a strong appreciation for the value of data-driven insights. In your past life, you may have been an intra- or entrepreneur, product manager, or consultant – with experience of the research involved in bringing a new offering to market.

It’s an exciting opportunity for you if you want to work in innovation but you are bored or frustrated with the current methods of research and delivery. You’ll be working at the forefront of developments in artificial intelligence and will be instrumental in helping us define a fundamentally new approach to innovation.

You will be responsible for:

  • Collaborating with clients to understand their market insight needs and business challenges
  • Articulating and communicating the benefits of the brand directly with clients and through written content
  • Translating insights into actionable insights for the client
  • Producing written reports and content
  • Working closely with the Product and Engineering teams to understand the current strengths and shortfalls of the technology
  • Informing, iterating and challenging our product roadmap based on what you learn through delivering client projects
  • Suggesting improvements to our insight delivery process to help lay the groundwork for our future client delivery model


  • Ability to learn quickly and enjoy the fluidity of a dynamic start-up environment
  • Minimum of 5 years of industry experience in at least one of the following: innovation, product/brand strategy, market research, and insight.
  • Experience in a client-service or consultative role and bonus points for a deep understanding of the challenges involved in selling into large consumer brands
  • Demonstrated ability to write in a compelling manner (reports, blogs, etc.)
  • Outstanding verbal communication skills – including listening and observation skills
  • Entrepreneurial by always keeping the bigger vision in mind, for both our clients and the brand
  • Passion for sharing what you’ve learnt and confidence to ask others for help
  • Never-ending curiosity for finding solutions to hard problems.
