Assistant Project Lead (Contractual)

Grail Insights (www.grailinsights.com) began as the research arm of a strategic consultancy. We are now an independent and rare hybrid: a global insights partner with deep consulting roots. We are at our best when pushed to go beyond the bounds of typical research engagements. Our clients demand answers to their most pressing business challenges. But more than that, they want agility, action and implementation.

That's where we part ways with the limits of lumbering mega-consultancies and the tunnel vision of traditional market research. Grail cares deeply about results beyond the standard PowerPoint deliverable. We are 250 wickedly insightful analysts, consultants, marketing scientists, technologists, data scientists and senior client services officers worldwide, ready to help you identify and seize opportunity, counter threats, and take your business forward.


Associates hold critical responsibilities and assist managers and project teams with the effective execution of the project. Associates are expected to have the ability to work in multiple modules at one point, thereby providing maximum leverage to Project Leads. Being more experienced, they often engage end-to-end on the project and help with training newer/junior team members.
  • Understanding client contexts and dynamics of business concepts.
  • Facilitating brainstorming sessions with project teams and providing strong leverage to the Manager in creating work and analytical plans.
  • Managing module/part of project independently or with small teams.
  • Conducting comprehensive and effective research using both secondary and primary (interview, survey) research sources and techniques.
  • Organizing, analysing, synthesizing, and generating insightful and structured output using appropriate tools and techniques (memos, spreadsheets, reports, presentations, etc.)
  • As more experienced team members, contributing to the analytical approach, mentoring others, and helping drive innovation and internal improvements.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is part of Grail’s DNA and Associates are encouraged to participate in our various CSR initiatives and opportunities. We have a long term association giving back to the communities in which we live and work, and an ongoing commitment to positively impact in areas such as education, healthcare, social awareness and the environment.
