Executive recruitment company Monroe Consulting Group China is recruiting on behalf of a studio founded in 2017 specializing in strategy, innovation, and creative services. Our client builds brands for their clients from pre-seed ventures, start-ups, to MNC's and enterprises. They act as partners and advisors for their clients in helping them to develop strategies with innovation and creativity. Their culture is highly learning-centered, encouraging their team’s passion and curiosity in work and in life. 

Our client is currently looking for a Strategist to work within their established consultancy on one of their key accounts: a Fortune 500 beauty holding company.

  • Work directly with the Founder across a spectrum of strategy and innovation projects underpinned by cultural, consumer and commercial insight
  • Actively grow the account and consolidate the global strategic stewardship within this account
  • Run fieldwork in China, APAC, and Europe
  • Ensure strategic output continues to build upon their 8 year reputation
  • Work independently in bringing in new clients, pitching proposals, and delivering results
  • Relish running consumer facing fieldwork — from concept development, co-creation NPD workshops, to C Suite immersion tours

Job requirements: 

  • At least 5-7 years of qualitative research experience
  • Experience in and passion for the beauty industry
  • Able to independently and successfully pitch proposals to clients
  • Cross-disciplinary perspective (e.g. you can talk about semiotics and corporate strategy)
  • Native Mandarin and business-level English language skills
