Job description

We are looking for a bright spark to join our team of 12 researchers. Your role will be to support the quantitative side of the business, so you will have to be confident around numbers.

The job will be split between:

  • Creating surveys that enable us to get to the answers we are looking for
  • Charting and analysing the responses, interpreting what this means for the client
  • And then communicating findings to our clients in a visual and engaging way so that they can launch new products, improve products and services or understand their customers better
  • It will also include project management and office support on a day-to-day basis

You will get lots of support and training (both internal and external), but equally we will give you a lot of client exposure from the start, so responsibilities will come thick and fast and you will have to be confident and happy to be presenting pretty quickly into the role.

Training provided:

  • We offer in-house training with execs who have 20yrs + experience
  • We put all of our grads on a number of external Market Research Society courses
  • All grads spend time at our online platform, with our recruitment and our research studio to get a 360 view of the company

Career progression – we want it to be quick.

  • Grads are appraised every three months and progression / salary review is based on performance
