The Role

Research Support Executive - Global Full Service Market Research Agency - London up to £28k DOE

This is an exciting opportunity to join a fun, forward thinking and ambitious pharma market research company at their office at their West London office as a Research Support Executive.


The Company

A mid-sized industry leading pharmaceutical market research company who are well-respected within the sector and work on ad hoc projects for some of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the world. They are helping these companies to build their brands and work on projects that provide answers to inciteful questions that will ultimately help improve patient lives around the world. They are:

  • A vibrant bunch of people, with a good social scene and a great team spirit

  • An Innovative, forward thinking organisation who are not afraid to trial new ways of working

  • A mid-sized company where you are more than just an employee


The Role

This role is going to be multi-faceted and incredibly varied. Your primary purpose will be to provide operational and administrative support to the head of project resourcing, costing and talent. A part of your role will encompass an understanding of project compliance. You do not necessarily need to have experience of working within pharma market research but an understanding of working with project budgets/costings would be desirable. The role consists of:

  • Interpreting data and creating reports.

  • Inputting data onto the system and managing the database.

  • Being responsible for project budgets and costings, preparing cost breakdowns to client specification.

  • Maintaining an overview of project resource allocation and needs.

  • Communicating with internal and external researchers, developing and maintaining these relationships.



This is a great opportunity for an individual who has some knowledge of the market research process, ideally having worked in a support or operations role, this does not necessarily need to be within the pharma sector. To be considered you will need:

  • Minimum of 2 years' experience of working within an office environment.

  • Ideally you will come from a market research background or have worked within an accounting/finance administrative role.

  • The ability to multi - task and continually re-prioritise your workload.

  • A resilience and persistence within the way you work.

  • To be commercially aware.


What should you do next?

This Research Support Executive job is a great role and won't be around for long! So don't delay. If you are unsure and need some advice, give me a ring, otherwise just click apply, upload your CV and send, it's really that easy!

Josh Hadfield

Which team do you work in?

I work in the Market Research and Business Intelligence team

Which area do you specialise in?

Junior level Market Research and Fieldwork

How do you keep up-to-date with the issues in your sector?

I try and keep on top of industry specific news via LinkedIn, newsletters and media in general. I believe you can also gather most of the information that you need from conversations with candidates and clients. 

What is your favourite film and why?

Anchorman - it is one of those films where the more you watch it the funnier it gets. If not then pretty much anything with Denzel Washington in it - he doesn't do bad films!

If you could invent one this what would it be?

A time machine without a doubt! I absolutely hate both myself and other people being late so this would just solve all my issues.

What makes you distinctly different?

I have completed Tough Mudder twice, as well as other endurance events. I feel it is necessary to push yourself both mentally and physically, otherwise you never know what you can do. It hurts all the way around but you cannot beat that feeling the at the finish line!
