Social Research Interviewer – Mobile, with travel up to 30 miles

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

As a Social Research Interviewer, you’ll be interviewing members of the public, mostly in their homes. You’ll ask for their opinions on a wide range of subjects on behalf of all kinds of different clients, from government bodies to public sector organisations. The results of your research will support shaping governmental and corporate policies across the UK.

We’re recruiting 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!

£17.24 per hour (£15.38 per hour + £1.86 holiday pay) in London, a £500 joiner bonus*, plus travel expenses – and the opportunity to earn even more as your experience grows


*Joiner Bonus is paid if the 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 with them easier by writing to them in advance; and calling people to make appointments.

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

You give them a chance to have their say and influence public policy.

Some assignments will be very local to you; travel up to 30 or so miles can be necessary.

This is a flexible customer service, or sales role so you’ll have some control over when you work, although we ask you to commit to at least 12 hours a week. Beyond this flex your time around other commitments like childcare, caring, or other roles.

To begin with you will be paid by the hour and once you are up and running you will be paid by results. You’ll likely earn more this way, where you are being paid for every interview you complete along with other bonuses and incentives.

You’ll be assigned to a large area, you could have to travel up to 30 miles to reach certain postcodes, sometimes further – remember travel is always paid. In most cases you’ll need access to a car or another vehicle. If you’re in London [or Central Manchester or Birmingham], there’s other ways to get around.
