Research Executives (22k-30k)

Application closing date: 1st October 2021

In modern consultancy the work is fast-paced, demanding, and highly satisfying. The work is incredibly varied. Our Research Executives interview senior business-people and stakeholders, research critical issues, draft sections of nationally-important reports, develop survey questionnaires, perform analyses, help run focus groups and workshops, help to develop bids, and much more. The role is the first step on a career which potentially leads to high profile work as an expert and knowledgeable consultant.

We’re not looking for specific backgrounds for these entry-level roles. We’re seeking a mix of high qualification and intelligence, together with a very high level of written and people skills. Degree specialism is not important but having at least an excellent first-degree is a minimum requirement and advanced degrees are desirable.

We are looking for those with a “can-do” approach to work: people who make it happen. You should be a multi-tasker, with excellent writing, and good number skills. Training is on the job under the tutelage of experienced senior researchers. Through mentoring and regular appraisals, we work with you to develop new skills, enhance strengths, and resolve or mitigate weaknesses.

Your career as a research consultant begins at the bottom but, for those who really want to learn and to build a life-long career, there are few better places to start than at Pye Tait Consulting.

Location: Successful applicants are based at their homes and can therefore be based almost anywhere in the UK. However, they must have easy access to key centres of government and business.

Travel, post Covid-19, is an essential part of the job and this sometimes also entails overnight stays.
