The team at Research Opinions are always asking you to tell them what you think about everything from what gadgets you own to a new advertising campaign, so we thought our team page would be a great opportunity to get to know them and hear some of their opinions on a range of topics.
Julie established Julie Fuller Recruitment in 1987, which rebranded in 2010 to become Research Opinions. The success of Research Opinions encouraged her to open Aspect Viewing Facilities in 2002, and Acumen Fieldwork in 2005. The three businesses combine to provide a first class support service to the market research industry. Julie is currently on the AQR Board where, with her knowledge of the industry, she is at the forefront of new market research initiatives.
Our Recruitment Team
Charlotte is the Cog Lead – Special Projects, working on some of the trickiest projects we have. Her savvy use of social media has made her the in-house expert when it comes to finding hard to reach people for research.
What you love about the job: Learning about so many different things. I never thought I would be able to hold down a conversation with a farmer about round bailers. This job stretches you in so many different ways.
Predictions for the next big thing: More ethical products on the market and less plastic in the shops. In beauty, I think it will be about refillable products and less disposable single use items.
What would make the world a better place? Free coffee – everywhere. Oh, and maybe free gin! I think that would definitely help.
Emily works within the team as a Senior Recruitment Specialist, handling the replies we get to our research projects and contacting people to recruit them. As an avid social media user she’s a master of online recruitment.
Best thing about market research: Speaking to so many different people in one day and that huge sense of achievement when you’ve completed a project and you know it’s going to go well.
Favourite types of projects: Anything to do with food because it’s something that everyone loves to talk about and something we can always find people for.
Favourite product right now: The new Youtube app which allows you to lock your phone without the app pausing. I can’t believe it’s taken so long for this to become a thing!
Hailing from the Wirral, Clare joined the Research Opinions team after working in a hospital. She loves the fast paced variety of the projects we work on everyday and particularly likes working on projects which she has a particular passion for; like music.
The best part about working in market research: All the different people you get to speak to on a day to day basis.
What 3 things would you take to a desert island: Clare would pack a box of Happy Hippos, her phone and a water inflatable to help the days pass by more easily.
What one product could you not live without? Mascara – without it I look like a mole-rat!
After working in a variety of roles alongside studying Media Makeup at college, Harriet has now found her place amongst the Research Opinions team! Harriet loves to recruit for sports projects but also enjoys the challenge of taking on a project for a big household name or brand.
What are you currently watching on Netflix? About to start the new series of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina after waiting what feels like a lifetime for it to come out.
If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go: Probably Russia, I just think it would be quite an interesting place to visit. Or Disneyland Florida – probably two very different answers!
After studying Psychology with neuropsychology at Bangor University – Chrystal is putting her studies to good use when screening participants for the wide range of projects we recruit for – from Premium Chocolate to Cycling to Fostering, she enjoys hearing people talk about topics they are passionate about. Before joining the team she was working on the other side of market research in a viewing facility as well as going behind the scenes as festival security!
What’s the last book you read? Siege & Sacrifice by Charlie N. Holmberg. It’s the last book in a fantastic series so I have been delaying completing it by reading other books in the meantime.
What’s your favourite place in the world? I have a few places I love but the winner by far has to be Banff in Alberta, Canada. Snow-cappThis is a no-brainer – I love to listen and observe more than speaking and reading a good book is my life. I read several books weekly and have no need for speaking during that time so I think I’d survive with a pen and paper.ed mountains, wild animals, beautiful lakes, small-town vibes, no crowds and noise and some crazy yet lovely people? Yes please! I would love to go back for a super extended period.
Would you rather lose the ability to read or the ability to speak? This is a no-brainer – I love to listen and observe more than speaking and reading a good book is my life. I read several books weekly and have no need for speaking during that time so I think I’d survive with a pen and paper.
Healthcare Opinions is our dedicated research platform for Healthcare professionals and people who are receiving treatment for a range of conditions. We regularly conduct research on topics ranging from COPD to Diabetes, end of life care and children’s allergies. We’re continually looking for doctors, nurses, healthcare managers and members of the public to take part in our research. We never conduct clinical trials and participants will only ever be asked to share their opinions and experiences. Due to the highly specific nature of the topics, our research frequently pays significantly higher incentives to those who take part.
