📍 Location: Singapore
🏙️ Office requirement: Hybrid, 2 days a week in office
📝 Employment type: Permanent
At GWI we’re always looking for extraordinary people who thrive on making an extraordinary impact. Right now we’re looking for an Account Manager to play a key role in our Global Enterprise team in Singapore. If that’s you, and making a difference gets you out of bed in the morning, keep reading. It could be the start of something, well, extraordinary.

Sounds great, what will I be doing? 🤔

As our account manager you’ll participate in the formulation and implementation of Global Enterprise strategies in APAC, while also supporting broader global operational initiatives and a key participant in GWI’s success story.

Our goal for our clients is to make GWI the go-to research solution for all insight needs. The primary focus of this role is to retain and grow our clients by working with them as well as upselling project work by using your research and commercial knowledge.

It’s also fun; shaking things up is what working for a growing company is all about. So you’ll need to be flexible, comfortable with continuous change, and happy working in a high-tempo environment as we grow.

What do I need to bring with me? 🧳

You’ll need to be able to demonstrate the core skills this role requires. You don't have to tick all the boxes right away; the important thing is that you’re willing to learn. Here’s what the team will be looking for:

👉 Account Management experience working with top-tier clients in the agency, media, platform, advertising or research industry
👉 A strong track record closing deals in Subscription Services, Custom Research and/or Consultancy
👉 Excellent communication, relationship skills, ability to forge strategic relationships with senior decision-makers

Equally important is attitude. We want people who think big (to make an impact), ask why (to find a better way), and show respect (to everyone, at every level, all the time). Those are our values, exemplified by our leadership team, and they’re a big part of what we’re looking for in you.

Interview steps 👟

👉 Preliminary phone screen with the Talent Team (no video required)
👉 First video interview with the hiring managers
👉 Second (and usually the final*) video interview with the hiring panel, often including a presentation, followed by a values conversation with members of the wider GWI community.

*Don’t be alarmed if there are other stages in the process, it’s all part of the plan for some of our roles.

What exactly is GWI? 👀

GWI is modernized consumer research; global, on-demand, and accessible to everyone, not just data experts. Our platform is designed for companies looking for fresh and insightful data about their consumers’ values, purchase journeys, media usage, and social media habits.

With data representing the views of nearly 3 billion people across 52+ countries, GWI has become the go-to for agencies, brands, and media companies that want to know what really drives their audience to action.

Since launching in 2009 we’ve grown at a healthy pace, and to maintain this growth we need more extraordinary people. Hence this ad. Hence you.

What’s in it for me? 🎁

You’ll do the sort of work that got you excited about your career in the first place - not as a cog in a machine, but as an individual whose contribution matters. So gigantic job satisfaction comes as standard, but it’s only part of the package. You’ll also get:

🌴 Tons of days off: 25 days annual leave | Xmas office closures
💸 More than a great salary: Employee share scheme | Medical and Dental Plan
🧘 Great work-life balance: Flexitime | early Friday finishes | Work-from-anywhere options
🏡 Family-focused flexibility: Carer days | Enhanced parental leave
💪 A commitment to YOU: Accredited learning programs | A commitment to mental and physical health | Reward and recognition programs | Career development opportunities
🌎 A commitment to the community: DE&I committee | Volunteer options | 100% donation matching

Put all that together and GWI is the friendliest, most fulfilling place any of us has ever worked.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion 🤝

We take DE&I seriously. Not only is it obviously the right thing to do, it’s also the bedrock of our value of show respect and at the heart of our company culture.

We’re a global data business, so it’s essential our data reflects the global reality. Putting diversity into practice like this literally makes our business stronger. That’s why we strive to make our offices - and our teams - as diverse as our data. Want to know more? Take a look at our Life page on LinkedIn to learn more about our DE&I initiatives.

The point is, GWI is a place where you can genuinely feel at home, express yourself, and make your mark - whoever you are.

As a Disability Confident employer, we encourage applications from disabled candidates and are dedicated to providing all relevant assistance during the application and interview process.

We also encourage individuals from all backgrounds, including those from underrepresented and marginalized communities, to join our team.
