Introducing Huxly

Huxly is a new brand strategy and innovation consultancy, launched in April 2018. We believe that people are complex, and great brands are simple. We are changing the way our clients build brands, with a range of innovative approaches to help our clients to understand the true complexity of their consumers. For example, our innovation teams work with sensory scientists to gain unprecedented insight into consumers’ product expectations, allowing us to develop rounded and coherent propositions for food, drink and personal care categories. The Huxly ‘pitch’ has been highly successful in 2018/19, leading to project wins and highly satisfied clients, and we now have big growth plans for 2020.

We are part of the MMR group, the UK’s largest privately-owned market research company, and we have offices in Wallingford, London, Durban, Singapore, Shanghai, Sao Paulo and New York. Joining Huxly in early 2020 is a unique opportunity – to be part of a small, fast growing start up, backed by the strength and stability of a large global research business.

The Role: Brand Consultant / Associate Consultant

We are looking for a brand strategist and innovation consultant who can support branding, innovation and communications development projects with a group of clients.

Consultants are the backbone of our team, and this role will be at the heart of the brand strategy projects we run globally, providing creative and strategic thinking while also helping to manage the project logistics.

You will receive training, support and real client experience, with the chance to learn from highly experienced colleagues within the Huxly and MMR teams. We will expose you to a wide range of creative thinking and consumer research techniques including qualitative moderation, rapidly building your skills over three years to develop you into a confident consultant who can own and lead projects. Successful applicants will have the chance to work with some of the world’s finest brands, all around the world.

As a Huxly Brand Consultant you will receive specific training in:

  • qualitative research, with the goal of making you able to run focus groups and other research as quickly as possible
  • workshop management – enabling you to design and run creative workshops, building your presentation skills and helping you to run creative exercises with clients.

Specific accountabilities will include:

1. Working alongside Senior Consultants to support the building of great relationships with target and existing clients.

2. Helping to create superb proposals, and supporting the delivery of inspiring, unforgettable projects that make our clients come back to us for more work. Projects will be delivered alongside and with the support of:

a. Senior Consultants and Directors of Huxly

b. Our qualitative team, who provide project management support and moderators around the world

c. Our sensory qual team, who provide sensory science support when making recommendations on food and drink innovation and positioning.

d. Our design team (internal and freelance) who help us make sure that project outputs are visually stunning

e. Ideal Insight, our in-house videography team, who create videos to summarise project learnings and bring concepts to life.

3. Working with our new business communications team to ensure our content is sent out in a timely manner, to the right people in key accounts.

Based in the Wallingford and London offices, our geographical scope will be the UK, Europe and the USA.
