Is this you?

As a Principal in our business, you’re an experienced innovation consultant who is sought after by clients and project teams. You are an original thinker with an entrepreneurial bias delivering exciting work for clients and designing what the world needs next. You deliver complex projects end to end, managing stakeholder relationships and running effective, motivated project teams. You have a broad foundational understanding across all functional capabilities and you have a deep expertise in at least one:

  • Strategy and Business Case Design
  • Product and Portfolio strategy
  • Deep human insights (qual)
  • In-market testing (quant)
  • Design - concepts, products or services

This knowledge allows you to create a compelling client narrative for clients across our entire offer. You have developed a strong POV and deep knowledge in one of our industry areas (Consumer, Healthcare, B2B) and you’ve found ways to take that to an external audience. Junior team members learn and develop when working with you.

You are active in business development - building strong relationships with client teams, creating and closing new upsell opportunities - and you’re comfortable making a significant contribution to our revenues ($750k+)


Some things you should know about how we work

Board of Innovation is committed to open source - all our tools and frameworks are available on our website (in case you didn’t already know that) and you can download as many as you like to use in any way you like. That should tell you something about how we think about Innovation - what we do goes beyond frameworks and methodologies. We hire people who think bigger than the box and don’t need the template - the original thinkers.

We are methodology agnostic. So there is no handy manual to tell you how to innovate. We look for fast learners who can see a client problem from a different angle and find smarter ways to answer strategic questions.

We are remote first. We optimize all our processes and communication channels for those who work remotely.. We value trust over control so don’t expect to be micromanaged - you need to be a self-starter with the confidence to work it out and get things moving.

And finally we’re all about the work - it’s about growing and thriving whilst we help clients to make what life needs next. If you are constantly raising your own bar and committed to helping others do the same then we’d love to talk to you about what your life needs next.


Board of Innovation is an independently owned global innovation firm. We join forces with the world’s most ambitious businesses to make bolder moves; preparing them for what is next by setting daring strategies. We cut through the noise and gain deeper insights to spot opportunities through deep research. We lead with empathy to design better experiences that people will love. And that is how we help our clients to design and build what life needs next.

We're proud to work with clients like Nestlé, Bayer, Danone, Roche, ING, Takeda and Toyota - around the globe.
