‘Unlike any time in history, connecting the medium, the message, and its sequencing to the consumer is more vital than ever.
Connected creativity is the synchronization of strategic positioning, engaging creative, combined with the next generation of engagement planning to ensure ideas create the cut-through needed to deliver the strongest commercial performances. Today, creativity cannot be left to chance. One brand expression or big TV ad is simply not enough.
More than ever, brands need to live in culture and our consumers worlds, allowing audiences to not only consume brands, but take part in owning, creating and amplifying them. To do this, the role of influencers, publishers, the news and bought media are inseparable from each other and the expression of the idea itself. To create such work, the classic disciplines of the marketing mix – advertising, experience, PR, CRM, media, digital – must all be unified, removing P&Ls, biases and incumbency to reveal a new breed of agnostic agency, resulting in connected creativity.
At CHE Proximity, we see this as the shift from brand as advertising to brand as experience. It is as profound a change in advertising as the printing press was to the democratisation of information. We are investing our every effort into leading this transformation and in doing so, supporting the sustainability of our cherished industry as an essential ingredient of modern commerce.
This is what we call Connected Creativity.
We are looking for a Research Marketing Manager to run our research department. As the agency guru for all things research and the voice of the customer, we want someone who can provide end-to-end project management across qualitative and quantitative research approaches.
You will be Melbourne based and working within a national team of strategists across brand, experience, media, data and technology, collaborating to deliver thought leading strategy across new and existing clients.
Applicants should be able to meet the following expectations:
Minimum three years research experience across quantitative & qualitative methodologies
Experience leading the end-to-end research process including proposal writing, developing costs and timelines, managing internal and external stakeholders, conducting fieldwork, analysis, reporting and presenting findings.

You sit down with account service who has a client with a problem they are hoping research can solve. You help define the problem and any parameters before going away to write a reserch proposal.
After the briefing, you have a brainstorm to determine the best approach, and if there are any other CHEP capabilities you could leverage to deliver this – think UX, CX, Creative, Production, Data – and start developing a comprehensive proposal.
Next, you sit down for a couple of interviews with participants for another research project you have in the pipeline, spending some time afterwards collating your thoughts before you jump on to the next task.
You then deliver a quantitative findings report to the client, walking them through the research approach and key findings and addressing any questions or disputes along the way.
Before you wrap up for the day, you review a video edit of Black Mirror responses being used to support the creative concepts on a pitch.
You are always looking to do research that challenges the norm and have the desire to shake up the rigour of traditional research, leading projects that find new, innovative ways to tell our customer's stories.
You're a team player that loves working in an entrepenurial, fast paced environment who's not afraid to take on new challenges every day.
You will be the go to person for all things research.
You will lead and oversee all research projects that come through the agency.
You will be the key contact for research vendors + partners.
You will be responsible for running multiple projects across qual + quant, from briefing to fieldwork to reporting.
You will define approaches based on getting the best insight into the problem research is trying to solve.
You will be the voice of the customer when communicating findings both internally and externally to clients.
