JumpStart Executive

Marketing and Communication

Did you know that consumer insight is what makes the world tick? There’s not an advert or TV program, movie or streaming service, new flavour of chocolate or the latest pop-up restaurant that hasn’t been researched before it’s launched! Our clients (like TikTok, Disney, Dove and Coke) are able to build better marketing and make better products, because of the strong partnership they have with MetrixLab.

If you are curious about what makes people tick and have a passion for telling great stories about how well (or not) you think an advert is performing, then this might be the right industry for you.

MetrixLab is delighted to launch our JumpStart Academy – a performance based, fast-tracked program to identify, coach and grow high calibre insight professionals!! You will go from entry level to Research Manager in 2 years or less!

Come and experience the special formula that makes MetrixLab’s business and people truly unique.
