Barkers Group is looking for Graduate Researchers to join TCS and Barkers, two independent employment communications agencies based next door to each other in Farringdon, London.

Working across a wide number of organisations - including Norwich Union, First Direct, McDonald's and Cancer Research UK - we develop advertising and other forms of messaging for recruitment and internal communications campaigns.

Our research teams play a crucial part in the planning and development of campaigns, helping clients better understand and quantify their target audiences, and recommending the most effective targeting strategies.

We're looking for a Graduate Researcher to join each agency. Reporting in both instances to the Head of Research, the roles will involve working with our account teams to provide research for a variety of clients across a number of sectors.

Main responsibilities:


Using a variety of databases to complete labour market research reports for current and potential clients, looking at factors impacting on recruitment strategy. These would include population demographics, employment levels and competitor activity.

Assisting with qualitative and quantitative research projects, typically comprising surveys and focus group work, including analysis and reporting of findings.

Feeding back research findings to account teams to help influence the strategy and media plans for clients.

Key competencies:


Strong writing and analytical skills
Experience of working with and interpreting statistics
Experience of working with online databases
Good communication & interpersonal skills



Graduate 2:1 from a good university
Related degree subject preferable but not essential
Work experience in an office environment

TCS and Barkers operate as separate agencies, though both offer friendly, creative environments that require someone who is confident, capable of managing their own workload, and who has a good sense of humour. The ideal candidate(s) will have an opportunity to meet both teams during the recruitment process. We are looking for someone able to start as soon as possible though can be flexible over exact start dates.
