Four new starters arrive at DJS Research!

Following a sustained period of growth, we are pleased to announce the arrival of four new members of staff – all of whom join the research team. The new starters are part of an on-going recruitment drive to allow us to continue to offer the highest quality research to our clients, which has seen us recently named to the MRS’ ‘Ones-to-Watch’ list. 

Speaking about the new starters, Danny Sims, Managing Director, congratulated all four on their immediate contribution to the team:

As a growing agency we have an on-going need for high-quality researchers across a range of levels, and we are always looking for exciting talent to join us. Liz, Magda, Matt and Matt have each made an immediate impact, working on some very high profile projects and ensuring that we continue to deliver top quality outputs to clients old and new. We’re very excited to have them on board as we move in to our new financial year.”

Liz, Magda, Matt and Matt are profiled below.

Here she gained experience conducting qualitative and quantitative projects for various private and public sector clients, including the Scottish Government, Skills Development Scotland, SNP, Scottish Legal Aid Board, HSBC and Kwik Fit Insurance.

Prior to joining DJS Research, Liz has worked at a range of larger and smaller agencies, including IFF Research, Carat and Family, Kids and Youth. This has provided her with a range of research skills, and she has vast experience conducting research of a sensitive nature with vulnerable audiences, such as asylum seekers, disaffected youths and gang members, prisoners and those suffering from drug abuse.
