  • You will need access to a vehicle on a regular basis and a vehicle license.

This role is challenging, as you will be going to addresses without prior appointment, catching people when you can to complete your surveys face to face. We have targets to reach in terms of numbers of interviews and deadlines, so we need interviewers with tenacity and drive. The research we complete shapes the country, so it's important we speak to as many people in a target area as possible.

  • You will be using your excellent customer service skills,
