Career paths at M·E·L Research are very varied. We are committed to a Talent Management approach to personnel development, which means developing the roles of our people around their greatest skills and abilities, rather than just slotting people into a pre-determined mould like most conventional employers.  Having research and consultancy arms to the business, along with a large Field and Data team and support teams, gives plenty of opportunity to people with ambition and determination to get on and do well within the company, and to gain experience that can help them move forward elsewhere.

We are always on the look out for the kind of people who can help strengthen our business. Opportunities regularly arise for:

  • Senior Consultants: with a proven track record as associate consultants or freelancers across our wide portfolio of interests outlined throughout this site
  • Research analysts and consultants: with a research degree and professional experience in undertaking commissioned research projects in the public service - or recent graduates looking to build skills and gain experience
  • Field Research Interviewers: doorstep or telephone survey interviewers full or part time (temporary) - ideal for students and people with other family commitments

Get yourself on our shortlist of potential recruits - email your CV to stating which of these categories of employment interest you, and we will let you have details of any current vacancies and how to apply.
