Why Join SYSTRA

We are looking for an experienced mixed methodology research manager with a passion for social issues to join our growing social and market research team in Woking.

SYSTRA is an international consultancy with a specialist full-service social and market research team.  Whilst much of our research circulates around transport, our real passion is understanding behavioural influencers and communicating these back to our clients, often senior policy makers in government.  As such, in addition to the transport sector you will find yourself working on projects within the energy, environment, utilities, criminal justice and education sectors.

This role will suit someone with the required technical and management skills, who takes a hands-on approach and enjoys working as a team.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Research design and proposal writing;
  • Project management, including financials;
  • Delivering a wide range of qualitative and quantitative research projects; and
  • Providing support to the wider team, and company, in all aspects of research, including questionnaire design, in-depth interviews, focus group moderating, data analysis and report writing.

To be successful in this role you will have:

  • An excellent grounding in both qualitative and quantitative research techniques;
  • Strong numerical skills;
  • Strong written skills;
  • Strong client facing skills;
  • A relevant degree (with an element of research, or mathematically based);
  • Excellent attention to detail; and
  • Strong use of MS Office and SPSS.

In return, you will have the chance to manage a wide range of projects within the social, public and government research sector, build strong working relationships with clients, and establish yourself as a key member of the social and market research team. 

We offer a competitive salary, with a comprehensive and attractive benefits package.
