Based in West London, we have a unique opportunity for a Research Recruitment Specialist to join an innovative design consultancy, providing support to clients from the consumer, industrial and medical device sectors. We are looking for someone with excellent administration experience and people skills, as this role is based around recruiting volunteers to take part in a variety of studies, to assess the usability of new technological innovations. If you are highly organised, keen to learn, great with people, and eager to make an impact, we would love to hear from you!
The company is offering a competitive starting salary, in the "early to mid 20s", depending on experience, with scope for progression as the role evolves.
This position will focus on the overall project management of usability studies run on behalf of third-party clients. In collaboration with the Human Sciences team you will be responsible for the administration and management of participant recruitment, facility access and scheduling all activities to ensure a robust and effective usability trial that produces excellent results to feed back into the design process. As the role develops you will create internal procedures for recruitment management and be tasked with bringing further outsourced services “in house”. The company wishes to have more direct control over its studies (which are essentially similar to recruiting patients to participate in pharmaceutical clinical trials), which means that your role will have a lot of scope for long-term career development.
A long-established design consultancy, working with some of the world’s most respected companies across a range of sectors including medical, industrial and consumer sectors. This company has a global presence and has won numerous design awards for the products they have developed. They are a collaboration of Designers, Engineers and Researchers, working to complete projects all under one roof.
The ideal candidate for this role would have around 2 years’ experience in a similar role, paired with strong administrative skills, being proactive and organised. You will need to be able to work on your own initiative and be confident in working by yourself. Excellent communication skills are essential as you will be acting as a middle person between the third – party client and the Human Sciences team, as well as updating the team of various deadlines and activities. If you have managed multiple large-scale international studies and have previous experience within a medical setting it would be ideal, but other industry experience will also be considered.
This could also be an ideal opportunity for someone who has been a Resourcer in a Recruitment agency (especially if relating to life sciences, medical or healthcare industries), but who does not wish to stay within a sales environment. This position will use all of the skills that a good Recruitment Resourcer will have, including identifying suitable people, building rapport, organising appointments, providing updates and ensuring that all projects move forward efficiently.
