Project Management lead – social research; fieldwork; new off-line data collection strategy

The social research arm of this agency delivers research which helps governments and not for profit organisations create and improve public policy, services and programmes at a global level. Working across a wide range of areas from health to education, civil justice, environment, gender equality, mobility and migration they help their clients build a better, fairer society.

With huge investment in their data collection offering, they are hiring for a Project Management Lead to manage some of the most prestigious social research studies in the industry. This team deliver world class, specialist public data that ultimately improves lives.

With a background in offline data collection you’ll be responsible for ensuring that the projects (ad hoc and continuous) are on track at every stage, identifying and solving issues along the way and conducting regular reviews to ensure that project delivery is always run to the highest standards – sharing pre and post project feedback with your team – this is a very collaborative environment.

There is a people management piece here (managing 1 or 2 execs) and the role has significant stakeholder engagement and communication with internal teams (research and operations) to ensure that these studies are producing the highest quality data.

There is also a client facing element to this role; partnering with some of the agency’s biggest social research clients to provide first class data collection expertise and guidance on some really significant and high-profile projects.

We are looking for a fieldwork executive/project manager with in-depth expertise in data collection, specifically using face-to-face and telephone methods. Someone who really understands data collection and operations from an offline fieldwork perspective.

Whether you are currently working within offline fieldwork, or have done in the past, this experience is essential, and someone who can bring something different to the role eg. from a smaller business or from a different sector would be welcomed, though some experience in social research is beneficial.

The agency is full of high calibre, smart people, who are passionate about the work that they do, and they offer exceptional training with a clear career development framework both in the UK and internationally – it is a really exciting time to join the business.
