Face to Face Social Market Research Interviewer - Mobile, with travel up to 30 miles

Have you ever wondered where statistics like "36% of Britons think the government should reduce income tax" come from?

As a Social Market Research Interviewer, you will be interviewing members of the public, mostly in their homes. You will be provided a device to ask for their opinions on a wide range of subjects, and record their responses. We work on behalf of all kinds of different clients, from government bodies to public sector organisations. The results of your data gathering will support improving public services, shape governmental & corporate policies, and influence public policy across the UK.

We regularly recruit throughout the UK, if you are over 18, personable & confident when meeting new people, have a vehicle & a valid UK driving licence, and want to earn money whilst impacting public policy - then this is the role for you!

£14.00* per hour (£12.50 per hour + £1.50 holiday pay) outside Central London, a £500 joiner bonus**, plus travel expenses - and the opportunity to earn even more as your experience grows.

You will get to speak to a wide variety of people each day and a key part of the role is being personable, showing people why spending a little bit of their time to take part is worthwhile.

Some assignments will be very local to you; some assignments will require travel of up to 30 miles, occasionally more.

We will provide you with comprehensive fully-paid training to set you up for success in the role; our dedicated training team will support you in-person during your first day in the field and remain available throughout your time with us.

  • To begin with you will be paid by the hour, once you are fully trained and performing well you will be paid by results. You'll likely earn more this way, where you are being paid for every successful interview that you complete, along with other bonuses and incentives.

**New joiner Bonus is paid when an Interviewer is still active 12 weeks after starting in field, actively taking new work and has completed at least one assignment.

You will be knocking on people's doors using light sales techniques. We make engaging our Participants easier by writing to them in advance; and when you meet with people, you can also make appointments that works for the Participant and you. You give people the chance to have their say and influence public policy, and sometimes they are offered an incentive to take part in the research.

You'll be assigned to a large area, you could have to travel up to 30 miles to reach certain postcodes, sometimes further. Mileage is always paid. In most cases you'll need access to a car, or another vehicle, if you are applying for a role in Central London, there's other ways to get around.

If you like what you've seen, please apply below; you will be invited to a Microsoft Teams interview within a few days.

This is a flexible customer service, market research or sales role so you'll have some control over when you work, although most of our Interviewers work Part Time 16-20 hours per week. The nature of research in people's homes means we are more successful in the evenings & weekends. Beyond this flex your time around other commitments like childcare, caring, or other employments.

Essential Criteria

  • The use of a car is mandatory
  • No experience is necessary and full training will be given
  • Successful applicants will need to complete successful DBS, identity, Employment and Right to Work checks
  • Interviewers are required to use a handheld device, and therefore electronic device literacy is important
  • Applicants must be over 18
  • Applicants must have the right to work in the UK, without sponsorship
  • Applicants must be willing to travel up to 30 miles
  • Work 16-20 hours per week
  • Interviewers work as part of a team across geographic regions

Desirable Criteria

  • Experience in sales is advantageous, but not necessary
  • An outgoing personality, with confidence to speak with new people and build report quickly
