Graduate Researcher at Revealing Reality - ESRO

Deadline: August 19, 2018

Type: Graduate

View more

About the Company:

Main business: Research and analysis

Based in Clapham Common, South London (zone 2), Revealing Reality is an award winning, creative thinking, qualitative research agency. Entrepreneurially spirited, we work with an array of industry leading clients including Google, BBC, Sainsbury’s, Ebay, Ofcom and Macmillan Cancer Support. Our aim is to deliver rich, robust and impactful behavioural insights for all our clients across the public, private, and third-sector.

About the Role:

We have two internship opportunities starting in September 2018, both for aspiring and enthusiastic junior researchers who are keen to develop a career in applied research.

Joining initially on a 3-month paid internship, you will be active in supporting a close knit growing team and learning the ropes of agency research.

You would be involved in helping with both everyday tasks as well as immersing yourself in complex challenges. This role would suit a confident, inquisitive person, genuinely interested in people and naturally analytically minded and detail orientated. A social sciences background is an advantage but not essential.

As a successful business, we are fully committed to our internship programme, and are growing fast so it is highly likely that both these internships will convert into permanent roles after the initial 3-month period.
