We’re seeking Social Research Interviewers / Field Interviewers to join a leading social research organisation. Working from home you’ll travel (within 30 – 40 miles of your home address) collecting valuable social research insight by interviewing participants.  You don’t need to have experience just a positive outlook and great communication skills! 
The Social Research Interviewers will get paid to meet people in their community and carry out important studies into policy areas such as transport, health, education and housing. No market research or sales is involved – all participants have been sent an advance letter by the Government Department or Research Institute.
Offering flexible working hours, mileage allowance and other benefits this is a unique opportunity to get out and meet people conducting valuable research across an array of subjects that they truly care about. The minimum expectation is that you should be available for work for four full days each week.

With a mission to make the public heard, this independent social research organisation has an unrivalled reputation in the field and leads the way in collecting key data for government departments, universities and major charities.  Joining as a Field Interviewer you’ll ask the questions that will inform policies to change people’s lives!!
As a key member of the Field Interviewing Team, you should expect to conduct face-to-face interviews with prospects at addresses. These addresses will have been sent a letter letting them know you will be calling, but it will be up to you to persuade people to take part in the survey.  If selected as a Field Interviewer, you’ll undergo a comprehensive training and induction programme (as well as ongoing professional development). 

To qualify… You should be outgoing, confident and a great communicator happy to meet new people. You just need the right attitude and a CV that demonstrates:
