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! 



The Role

I am currently recruiting for a Business Strategist for a leading fieldwork agency based in Hammersmith. This role will be key in the future growth and development of the organisation.


The Company

My client is a leading healthcare Fieldwork agency based in Hammersmith. They are now opening a subsidiary company which utilises the technology and database they already have in place, to try and reduce cost and expenditure within the healthcare sector on recruitment spend.

  • Work with leading pharma clients and have a very good reputation within the industry

  • Big focus on employee happiness: Monthly socials, good benefits package and a strong retention rate.


The Role

  • Design and implement business KPI'S to create a structure and then actively make sure that the business achieves the set targets.

You will be an innovative thinker, who would like to be an integral part in forming this new company. Someone with a start-up mentality, who can work flexibly and adapt their approach as situational challenges arise. Initially you will probably be quite 'hands on' but will you have direct reports. As the company grows your role will also develop.

  • Experience of implementing a business strategy within large organisations is key.

  • Strategic and logical thinker with strong analytical skills

  • Strong commercial awareness- having worked in start-ups and helped to grow them would be an ideal.
