They pride themselves on taking a collaborative, holistic approach, utilising and developing the best and most appropriate consumer and healthcare techniques (qual, quant and online), whatever the respondent type, anywhere in the world across the whole healthcare sector (pharma, device and diagnostics, OTC, personal care, medical nutrition, babycare....). As such they are looking for a candidate with ad hoc agency experience, who has ideally worked on a mixture of both qualitative and quantitative projects.
