The role of Consultancy Research Manager is within the AMA Research team. AMA Research is a leading specialist provider of market research and insight to the UK building and construction industry. AMA Research publishes over 150 off-the-shelf market reports and forecast bulletins and provides research which goes beyond the more commonly available range of statistical and company information, delivering expert, informed commentary and in-depth market analysis. AMA Research also offers consultancy services including market research projects and consumer and business surveys.

The Consultancy team within AMA Research manage a range of qualitative and quantitative research projects covering market sizing, brand positioning, health checks, market scoping and new product development research and testing. These require a blend of primary research in the form of surveys, focus groups, interviews and trials, along with secondary research including data gathering and analysis, studies on company and product information, often requiring lateral thinking to create and test data sets and market profiles.
