Research Assistant

We require a reliable and personable Research Assistant to support consumer research sessions at our facility in Windsor. This is a varied and fast-paced role which will include assisting with all aspects of live research:

  • Setting up for research sessions (for example, setting up AV equipment, signing respondents in);
  • Supporting research sessions (for example, taking effective notes, filming vox pops with participants); and
  • Providing client hospitality (ordering, collecting and serving food and then clearing and washing up)

This is a casual role, and the hours can be very irregular. Typical hours may be 4pm to 10pm, but some earlier or later hours may also be required. Due to the nature of market research, the number of days required per week can be very variable; as many as 4 days per week, potentially with a number of weeks of no research. As the working hours may vary, we need someone who is flexible and adaptable. Typically, we will give at least one week’s notice for hours.

Research Assistant duties include:

  • Signing in respondents
  • Distribute incentives to respondents
  • Setting up the research room and client room
  • Providing refreshments for clients
  • Booking taxis for clients if necessary
  • Plating up catering and making sure the clients have everything they need
  • Assisting with the videoing of the research – trouble shoot any camera issues (training will be given)
  • Assisting respondents with self-completion questionnaires
  • Effective note taking during the groups – with own laptop preferred
  • Filming vox pops with respondents
  • Tidying up after the groups
  • Additional tasks as required per project

Payable at a rate of £9.40 per hour.
