DJS Research Ltd Announces Promotions, New Appointment

3rd January 2013 14:45

DJS Research Ltd is pleased to announce the promotions of Matt Bristow and Annie Young to Research Manager and Research Executive respectively, and the appointment of Rebecca Tracey in the role of Business Administration Assistant.

Bristow, who manages major DJS contracts including the Competition Commission, is a skilled qualitative researcher and project manager with a particular interest in the sport and leisure industry – having completed research on a wide array of sporting initiatives and events throughout his career. Matt has been with DJS Research for around two years, and held a number of research positions prior to joining the agency.

Commenting on Bristow’s appointment, James Hinde, the Research Director who works most closely with Matt, felt the promotion was well-deserved:

“Matt has been with us nearly 2 years now and has shown great strengths in qualitative research and client handling particularly.  He has worked on a number of existing DJS accounts and has also been instrumental in gaining further customers for the agency – such as the Competition Commission. In addition, Matt adds a deep and detailed knowledge of the sport and leisure sector gained over numerous years working in the industry, and through his role as an assistant referee in the Football League Championship, League 1 and League 2, I look forward to seeing him continue to develop over the coming years.”

Young, the most recent product of DJS Research’s graduate training scheme was promoted in recognition of recent rapid progress and has managed projects with leading organisations in the Education sector, a well-known heritage charity and a global supplier of medical equipment.

Rebecca Tracey joins DJS as the company’s third apprentice – a sign of the agency’s continuing commitment to employing young and talented individuals from the local area. Rebecca attended Offerton High School, before continuing her education at Stockport College, where much of her theory study will take place over the next two years. Rebecca’s role as Business and Administration Apprentice will be wide-ranging, incorporating elements of office management and research support.

Elliot Simmonds, Marketing Executive at DJS Research Ltd, felt that the appointments were positive signs for the agency:

“I think that promotions within a company are always a good sign – it shows that you have a real trust in your staff and that they are the right people to do the job to the standard that we expect as an agency. Matt and Annie are both great for the team, and it’s really pleasing that Annie, who started on the Graduate Scheme a little under a year ago, is already at the point where she’s taking responsibility for the day to day running of some research projects. The level of client-orientated involvement given to early-career researchers, and the commitment to internal advancement are two of the best features of a career with DJS!”
