The role:

Do you have what it takes to manage multiple quick turnaround projects for a variety of interesting clients? Can you collaborate with colleagues and clients to deliver high-quality market research projects? Are you ready to join a passionate team and help us grow together?

Roots Research is a rapidly expanding company, with a fun fast-paced office environment. You’ll be joining our dedicated and enthusiastic team, working together to make sure projects run smoothly and deliver high-quality market research insights. All with a smile and sense of humour!
