Job Title: Research Intern
Working For: BritainThinks
Salary: £22,500 per annum (pro rata)
We are a fast-growing research consultancy that puts public and stakeholder opinion at the heart of our clients' thinking. Our research methodologies span all qualitative and quantitative techniques, and we have a diverse client base across the private, public and third sectors. We strongly encourage all potential applicants to take a look at our website for more information about who we are and what we do, including some of our previous reports.
We are looking for a bright, enthusiastic and hard-working intern to join our team. The chosen candidate will be primarily responsible for providing logistical and analytical support on research projects, as well as providing administrative support in the office.
Interns at BritainThinks gain exposure to all elements of our work, including seeing (virtual) focus groups in action, and contributing to the analysis and reporting process. This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone looking to embark on a career in social and market research or in communications.
We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age. We particularly encourage applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, as these groups are underrepresented both in our workplace and in the sector.
• Have strong communication skills, on paper, in person and on the phone.
• Have strong organisational skills and be able to multi-task.
• Have an excellent academic record.
• Be able to use Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel to a high degree of proficiency.
• Have permission to work in the UK at the time of starting employment.
Ideally you would also have some previous theoretical or practical exposure to qualitative or quantitative research methodologies (e.g. through academic studies or work experience), as well as experience of working in an office-based environment.
This is a 6 month role.
