Calling all students in YEARS 12 & 13....

Are you interested in people and why they think, feel and act in the way they do? Ever wondered what that means for the decisions that businesses, charities and governments make? At Humankind Research we spend our time understanding people in order to help organisations develop products, communications and programmes for positive change. Our work covers a huge range of topics, from exploring peoples` attitudes and behaviours related to the environment in the UK to understanding girls` relationship to sport and physical activity around the world. We do this for a range of clients from Nike and Unilever to the NHS and Oxfam.

On this virtual work experience you will have an introduction to what market research is, understand how a typical project runs and what it involves, and explore some examples of how we approach research problems. You will even have an opportunity to try out some interview techniques to get to the heart of an issue and go beyond what people say to what they really mean.

It will be a chance to improve your communication, analytical and problem solving skills, as well as have fun working on an interesting challenge with other students. The session will be led by a few members of our small and friendly team, who will also be very happy to discuss any questions you might have!

Please note: for this opportunity you will be required to be available from 3:30 - 5:30 pm on the 18th of August 2021.
