Our success is based on our amazing team using our state-of-the-art technology to empower consumers and brands to better connect and collaborate.

We believe the best work comes from happy people. Here are just a few of the professional and personal perks you’ll experience at InSites Consulting.

Diversity & Inclusion

We are a culturally diverse business, committed to supporting even more diversity and inclusivity, giving everyone a voice. We welcome applications from anyone that feels they have the necessary skills & experience, and can bring something different to the team.

Hybrid working culture

We embrace flexible working and give our people the personal freedom to work between our central offices and their home. Where and when people work is a joint decision with the focus on what’s needed to do a great job rather than where you are and strict working hours.


We encourage our people to take active part in discussions and ideas on the future of our organization. Our annual global congress, annual employee survey, quarterly on-track survey & weekly happiness barometers…; it all gives our people a channel to express themselves.

‘Glocal’ strength

We manage one organization from a strong global vision co-created with local strength. Our ‘forward’ values are what unites us, whilst our strong local teams empower and shape their future through their strong connections and client relationships.



As a Research Consultant within our Sydney office, you are part of a team of enthusiastic marketers and researchers who are determined to bring the voice of consumers into the heart of our client’s business. Having a focus on brand & comms and through your passion for market research, you will inspire marketers of top tier companies in finance, FMCG and the liquor categories (amongst others). You will work as part of a team to deliver outstanding market research, insight generation and consulting projects; helping our clients to shape the sustainable future of their brands. 

  • You will bring your research expertise and smarts to the table, being able to problem solve, handle client requests and manage ongoing work, particularly in the realm of brand health and comms tracking.
  • With a passion in brand & comms, you will have a good understanding of the needs of the client; their challenges and expectations.
  • You will get to know your clients so you can anticipate their needs and proactively help them.
  • Part of your day to day will involve managing tracking questionnaire changes, client WIP meetings and helping guide projects from brief to supporting presentations.
  • Using software such as Q, you will learn to run basic outputs and bring reports together for your clients.
  • Working close with a broader team, you will bring these quantitative results to life, derive meaning from the data and other sources, and compile actionable recommendations.
  • You will form part of a close-knit team that encompasses your colleagues, clients and other agency partners all striving to provide the best insight for decision making possible.
  • Depending upon your interest and evolution you will gradually be involved in the complete set-up, organization and execution of market research studies
  • You build experience and gradually become responsible for complete methodologies (e.g. sampling, survey design etc.) and gain project management responsibility
