Job Details

At Kantar’s Public Division we work with clients around the world to build a better public realm. We advise on global best practice in public policy, public service delivery and public communications, delivered by our local expert teams.

In our UK based team, we help our public-sector clients to gain the insight they need to make critical policy decisions. Our work must be of the highest quality and able to withstand the highest degree of scrutiny.  We are looking for enthusiastic Research Executives to join our team.

Not only will this ensure you develop smart research expertise (and you’ll be supported through the professional qualifications too) but our scheme will also build your commercial acumen, communication and project management skills – core foundations of any career.

The role aims to provide a strong foundation for new researchers, enabling you to undertake high quality social research.
