New MRS Tik Tok Channel

After many years of work, the Market Research Executive Apprenticeship is finally ready to be launched in January. It will provide a new, more accessible route into the industry, as well as an upskilling pathway to develop employees/workers already within a research role.

To celebrate and welcome the new apprentices into the industry, we’re launching a TikTok campaign and would love you to share a quick video with your reflections on:

  • How you found out about market research as a career option and what drew you to the sector?
  • What do you most enjoy about market research?
  • What's the one tip you'd give to someone looking to start a career in market research?

Don't worry – they don’t need to be professionally shot – you can be at home, in the office, on a commute – it’s a chance to get really creative and share your love of research! Our favourite videos will be featured on MRS social media, as well as launching our new channel on Tik Tok.

If you’d like to submit a video, just email it to me at melissa.coghlan@mrs.org.uk by 21st January.

We’re excited to announce that we are establishing the Young Person’s Sustainability Collective following the success of the &more Goes Green workshop in November.

If you’re interested in joining the Young Person’s Sustainability Collective to help ensure our industry embraces sustainability, please emailmelissa.coghlan@mrs.org.uk.
