Job Description

Why move to San Francisco? Here’s my personal top 5 reasons as to why!

  • The Outdoor Lifestyle – Outdoorsy types are drawn to living here because of the region’s stupendous natural beauty. Muir Woods, just 12 miles north of San Francisco, gets you a bonafide California redwood experience.
  • The Mild Weather – San Francisco’s cool coastal climate only reaches 80 degrees F or higher on an average of 21 days per year.
  • The Culinary Scene – Good luck trying to keep up with your “restaurants to try” list. San Francisco’s restaurant scene turns out new hits at a breakneck pace. The city fosters niche eateries for every craving, even ones you didn’t know you had. Foodies have met their match — from the finest produce to the fiercest pieties, even those who despise posts of your lunch will feel compelled to start a food blog
  • The Professional Sports – Whether you’re a football, baseball, basketball, hockey or soccer fan, the Bay Area has a pro team (or two) for you — and many are very good. Sports Business Journal named San Francisco the “Sports City of the Decade” in 2020
  • Finally, an exciting opportunity to work and lead a division for one of the best healthcare if not the best market research consultancies globally.

I am currently representing a Global Independent Healthcare Market Research Consultancy that specialises in pharmaceutical and biotech industry. They are currently recruiting for an Experienced Market Research Director for their West Coast division. The responsibilities of the role include leading the west coast division and office-based team, leading projects to completion, managing clients and developing new clients.

  • Demonstrated ability to meet or exceed sales targets of $2.5M+ annually
  • A desire to work in a client-focused, commercial environment
  • Experience and desire to lead, coach and develop a team

What Does My Client Offer You:
