Job description

We have 2 teams in the UK – our Fieldwork Services team, ‘The People Behind the Data’; and our Full Service Insight team, who deliver ‘Insight Worth Sharing’. These propositions infuse all of our values – and support our HR policy to ‘nurture a communicative, collaborative and trusting environment in which the team feels empowered to be ambitious, creative and pro-active in all aspects of their work’
