Research Executive (£22k-£33k)

In modern consultancy the work is fast-paced and, apart from skills and knowledge, it requires a quick and agile mind and great persuasive skills.

We do not seek specific backgrounds for these entry-level roles. Primarily we look for a mix of brains and people skills – degree specialisms are not important but having at least an excellent degree is a must. The people who are right for the world of consultancy are truly multi-talented.

We are looking, therefore, for keen intelligence but with the ability to think laterally and outside the box. We are looking for hard-workers but with the ability to manage work sensibly. Our people have to be true multi-taskers, with excellent writing and good number skills. Over time we’ll train you to become great presenters.

There is no prescribed career ladder or timescale and we work to strengths and to resolve or mitigate weaknesses. Your consultancy career is not set in stone – you build it yourself.

These posts are based in Harrogate.

If you have the core of determined, inner-strength to match your academic and early career experience, we’d like to hear from you.

The Company

Twenty-seven years young, well-respected for high quality work, with an experienced and highly capable team, Pye Tait Consulting has a long-established policy of recruiting only the best.

Our clients come from the very top drawer and we work hard to keep their trust and respect. Some of our reports are passed directly to Government Ministers and top decision-makers, many are published, and most set the agenda for whole economic sectors for years to come (see our website for examples).

Clients include top Government Departments like BEIS, DCMS and DfE, the Scottish and Welsh Governments, high profile agencies, and a host of blue-chip companies and organisations across almost every UK economic sector.

Our close-knit, supportive team takes immense pride in the work we do.

The Work

Our work is extremely varied and much of it of national importance.

Our seniors lead studies but everyone has a vital role to play in their successful completion. We work right across the UK, and sometimes further afield, attending project meetings, delivering pitches, designing studies for proposals, leading focus groups and workshops, drafting questionnaires, carrying out high quality surveys, crafting the very best reports, and much more.

And our specialist skills in education, skills and business are deployed in virtually every sector of the UK economy from aerospace to health, from the education sector itself to construction, and from engineering to food.
