Canal & River Trust

“We have worked with DJS Research for four years now, and are regular clients. They are incredibly competitive in their market, and the quality of their work is outstanding. They will regularly highlight areas we haven’t thought of, and their technical expertise is incredibly valuable. The fact that DJS are employee-owned really shines through in their attention to detail and approachable working style. They often go out of their way to offer advice, meet tight deadlines, or answer questions. If I had to describe DJS in three words, it would be: trustworthy, robust, reliable.”  

Waltham Forest Council

"Waltham Forest Council recently commissioned DJS to run our employee survey and it proved to be an excellent decision. DJS are fantastic to work with; from their partnership approach to working and their exceptional knowledge and expertise to their insightful reporting, we felt we were in the best of hands at each stage of the project. DJS are an excellent critical friend, whose main objective is to improve existing processes, to refine ideas and to ensure the best possible outcome for their clients."

Radley and Co

"I was really pleased with DJS from their understanding of what was required and how it was delivered. There was clear communication throughout and a quality summary presentation was provided at the end of the project." 

University of Wales, Bangor 

"Our experience of dealing with DJS Research to implement our staff survey was a very positive one. The communication was excellent, they consistently delivered on time and managed our expectations well.   As a team, we valued their advice and insight and felt our project was in very capable hands. In return, they listened to what was important to us and took onboard our ideas and suggestions. It was a pleasure to collaborate with the team and we are grateful to them for helping us make our project a success."

National Army Museum 

"DJS took the time to understand what the National Army Museum wanted from our research project. They went above and beyond in speaking to our internal stakeholders, which really helped ensure we got the most out of the research. The methodology worked really well for our needs and what we got out of it were two insightful, nuanced and interesting reports, with clear actionable recommendations and guidance. I would definitely use them again and would recommend them for any research requirements."

Arvia Technology

"DJS took the time and trouble to fully understand our needs and as a result were able to provide extremely useful and relevant research. I'd definitely use them again and would thoroughly recommend."


Network Rail

"We had a brand new concept still being developed but the guidance and expert support of DJS ensured we got the most out of our evaluation. It has allowed us to shape our proposal and ultimately reaching the next stage of our project wouldn't be possible without ElliotGrace and the DJS team."


''DJS Research were professional and efficient, and the quality of their output surpassed that of any other research agency I have used. Their findings and conclusions were spot on, and the way results were presented was clear, insightful, and visually appealing, which made sharing them with a wider audience easy. I would recommend them to others.''

Horniman Museum and Gardens

"It was fantastic working with DJS on a bespoke audience segmentation. They took time and care to understand our needs, were full of advice and ideas, consistently went above and beyond in delivering updates and insight, and ultimately produced a clear and comprehensive analysis which can be applied across the organisation."


"DJS Research, and particularly Rebecca Harris, Rachel Waddington and Claire Williams, have been outstanding in all respects and I cannot thank them enough for the fantastic work and support throughout the project. I have been so grateful for their understanding, support and quick turnaround of additional requests and I have felt immensely proud having them by our side as our partner in this project. Myself and senior stakeholders at KCOM have been really impressed by Rebecca and Rachel’s ability to calmly receive challenge by our chief executive and they have done an amazing job at articulating the insight in such an engaging way."

"It's been a pleasure to work with DJS. Throughout the project Becca and Gill have made sure they had a thorough understanding of our requirements and have been helpful wherever changes have been required. I'm very happy with the final reports and look forward to working with them in the future."

Unit4 Software

"We have worked with DJS on several projects and they always deliver great results. As I would expect from a research firm, they help me tailor initial research ideas to create something compelling, rather than leaving me floundering with it. Excellent consultancy and creativity from the point of project brief and survey creation, to well presented output delivered on-time has helped make our research projects successful and ensures value for money. I have not seen this level of professionalism from another research firm".

Sport England

"DJS helped us to explore a complex issue in a way that felt relatable to colleagues who don't 'live and breath' research. The team gave us a really helpful strategic steer, as well as great day-to-day project delivery. The resulting piece of work is attractive, accessible and valuable."


"DJS impressed me with their expertise and enthusiasm from the moment their proposal landed on my desk. The focus groups were carried out to a tight timescale and the research answered all of our questions. The debrief was excellent - with actionable insights and clear recommendations. I couldn't ask for any more!"

Yorkshire Water 

"This was a very challenging project given the nature of the research and the timescales set by the industry regulator. The DJS team did a fantastic job in ensuring that the qualitative stage was delivered on time complete with a detailed final report" 

RM Results 

"We've been very impressed by the service DJS provide. Obtaining reliable, timely, detailed information to support decision-making is vital to us, and DJS have consistently delivered that; and have been very easy to work with throughout the process. I look forward to continuing to work with the team on future projects and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a high quality, responsive and professional market research agency." 

British Library

"DJS Research fully understood the complex Higher Education market we were dealing with, and their flexible, focused approach gave us thought-provoking insights and solid recommendations for how to develop our services."

British Council

"Working with DJS was a pleasure. It was refreshing to work with an agency that is very approachable, flexible and professional at the same time. We appreciated great communication throughout the whole project and the top quality of their work."

Young Epilepsy

''Having never used a market research company before we have been really pleased with the way that DJS have guided us through the process and worked with us to ensure that we achieved our objectives. They completed depths & an audit interview along with a national survey, representing both us and our funders in an extremely professional way.''

Lavendon Group

"The customer service received from DJS Research was outstanding. Both Sharon and Charlotte are a pleasure to work with. Employee & Customer Suveys aren't something I've been responsible for in the past and I entered this project unsure what NPS really meant and had little idea how we could improve what had been done in the past. Charlotte and Sharon were very patient with me and extremely helpful even when I know we weren't being easy to do business with. When it came to presenting to the Group Exec Board I was confident the Group Exec would be happy with the results of the survey in terms of how they were presented and the way in which it was presented helped the MDs understand what areas they needed to prioritise first."

The Open University Business School

"DJS took the time to really understand our objectives, background and wider organisational requirements and added real value to our project. They were not afraid to proactively suggest improvements and delivered results on time and on budget. They were supportive throughout and reactive to changes in schedule extremely promptly. Great service and a great result."


"Very satisfied with the whole process from start to finish. Professional and curtious and met all deadlines. Excellent quality of report providing headlines on both positives and negatives with back up results contained within the report which were easy to understand and digest."

ELGA LabWater

"We have been highly impressed with the market research project that DJS carried out for our company. Market research plays an integral part in our future business growth and DJS delivered and presented the sort of information we can use to help achieve this.  We would definitely use this company again and would have no hesitation in recommending their services."

Forestry Commission Scotland

“The work completed was done efficiently, to a high standard, to the identified budget and to the agreed timescales. The team were flexible to work with and clearly communicated the project progress throughout. It fully met the brief, which was commissioned in a way that ensured the integrity of the organisation was maintained and project commitments met. I will be sure to include the company within any further tender opportunities for similar works and will recommend them to colleagues. In short, an enthusiastic, experienced and committed team which delivered quality from start to finish."
