Job Title: Research Executive

Working For: Message House

Location: Berkhamsted, Herts. (30 minutes from London Euston)

Salary: £21,000-£24,000 plus bonus, pension and other benefits

Job Details

We are looking for a talented and committed individual to fill a vacancy as a Research Executive.

The position is a key part of the research team, involved in all aspects of the research process with an opportunity to help design and run fascinating research projects for clients. The successful candidate will contribute to major client studies as well as learn about what makes for effective communications. There are good opportunities for progression through exposure to new and varied challenges, with mentoring & training by more senior team members.

The role will suit a graduate with an interest in market research or someone who has experience of working in research previously.

Skills & Experience

  • Good university degree
  • Good IT skills in data handling & analysis as well as communication and presentation of findings e.g. Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint
  • Good organisational skills – project management experience is useful, attention to detail vital
  • Numerate and comfortable dealing with complex projects and both quantitative & qualitative data sources
  • Ideally some experience working in market research or a related field (although full training will be provided)
  • A strong interest in how effective communications work

The role requires candidates who are committed, hard-working, self-motivated and enjoy problem-solving. We don’t expect candidates to know everything about research when they join, so a willingness to learn is key. As clients often require answers quickly on queries that may not directly relate to research, a willingness to work flexibly & ability to apply skills across a variety of tasks is also important.


Message House is a research and campaigns consultancy. We specialise in using market research tools like surveys and focus groups to uncover the answers that help solve business problems & improve the effectiveness of communications. We work as consultants to support communications and political teams, helping them understand the landscape they face, their most winnable audiences, the messages that move the needle and their most compelling narrative.

We have expertise across a range of sectors from transport to technology, entertainment to energy, and finance to FMCG.

We're a growing company with a close-knit and collaborative team, big clients and big ambitions for the future.

Closing Date: 7 June 2019

Interview/Start Dates

Interviews will take place in mid to late June
