Director, Global Research & Insights
At Pearson, we are committed to a world that is always learning and to our talented team who makes it all possible. From bringing lectures vividly to life to turning textbooks into laptop lessons, we are always re-examining the way people learn best, whether it is one child in our own backyard or an education community across the globe. We are bold thinkers and standout innovators who motivate each other to explore new frontiers in an environment that supports and inspires us to always be better. By pushing the boundaries of technology — and each other to surpass these boundaries — we create seeds of learning that become the catalyst for the world’s innovations, personal and global, large and small.
We are looking for a highly experienced, seasoned research professional to lead a team of centralized, high-performing researchers to develop and manage internal client relationships, building trust and driving strategy through insights.
Ideal candidates should have a contagious passion for research - as well as a keen interest in our mission and business -empowering progress through lifelong learning.
Reporting directly to the Head of Research and Insights, you will lead a global team of energetic and passionate researchers who will simulate an agency model by being client-centric, dynamic and adaptable to perform at high levels, ensuring that insights are used and elevated within the organization to make strategic decisions at Pearson.
This is a critical enabling, and operational position that “keeps the lights on” and works closely with the Head of insights to lead, manage, and support a 25-person research organization. Because this will be a newly formed organization, you should be comfortable in a startup environment, and be willing to roll up your sleeves and wear multiple hats as we get the function up and running in 2018.
