Qualities we look for


The great team we’ve built has been as much about attracting people with passion, potential and the right attitude as it has been about having people with the perfect background or experience.

Some of the key things we look for in the ideal Norther…

  • A passion for brands and pharma/healthcare
  • Genuine team players
  • High quality standards and a desire to deliver work that really makes a difference
  • Intellectual curiosity, a willingness to question the accepted wisdom and the ability to think beyond the obvious

My role is extremely varied, interesting and rewarding. Since joining Strategic North I have been involved in many market research and strategy projects within a range of different disease areas. One of the best and most unique things about working at Strategic North is that we are given huge amounts of responsibility and are managing, attending (and eventually running) workshops, presentations and research interviews. The culture at Strategic North is also a big part of how we work as a company and making people feel like equal members of the team is essential in every project we do.

My role as Research Operations Manager is extremely interesting and challenging, no two days are the same! We have the freedom to get involved at all levels to help improve our understanding of the business and the industry. The culture is a very important part of working at Strategic North, we have a very strong sense of team and are encouraged to help and support each other, having a flat non-hierarchical structure gives us the chance to ‘have a go’ at various tasks and roles.

I have learnt so much in my Analyst role in such a short time. So far, I have been involved in conducting telephone interviews, leading discussions with clients at central location days whilst managing projects and developing a creative patient pathway infographic. Strategic North really focuses on the development of its analysts and provides us with great opportunities to push ourselves. Work aside, Strategic North is also known for its quirky and creative company socials for example, go karting, the ale trail and axe throwing!
