A UK-Based Market Research Company

Established Qualitative & Quantitative Market Research Company
DJS Research Ltd is an independent UK Market Research Consultancy based in the North West, High Peak (close to Manchester on the Derbyshire/Cheshire border), which was set-up in 2001. The agency is led by five Research Directors who carry out all elements of the research process from start to finish. We therefore offer very high standards of service at competitive rates. We can be contacted by revealing our telephone number or clicking on our website link (both above)

The Research Directors have worked within the research industry for a number of years (at least 12 years each) and have both agency and client side experience. We offer both qualitative research and quantitative research services - either a full service approach i.e. including the initial proposal through to fieldwork and the delivery of the results, or resource for a particular aspect of the research project.

I commissioned DJS Research to undertake a series of telephone interviews with stakeholders and was impressed by their astute interpretation of the brief and their recruitment of participants. The team produced a high quality report that has been very useful in our strategy development process. James and Emma were great to work with and very responsive to our needs. The project was good value for money and I would have no hesitation in recommending DJS Research.

It was a pleasure to work with such a professional team. David was very approachable and quickly understood our requirements; the interviewers did a great job in overcoming language barriers and maintaining the interest of the respondents despite the length of the calls.

By London Borough Council ,

I found the service we received from DJS Research second to none. From the time of our initial contact to the submission of their final report I found them professional, enthusiastic and well informed. They responded quickly to queries and suggested creative solutions to challenges during the lifetime of the project. They handled a very sensitive project respectfully and with a mature and understanding approach. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to another organisation and engaging their services again.

We were very impressed with DJS research from first contact all the way through to the end of our research project. Their understanding, insight and enthusiasm was very helpful and we found at every stage communication was excellent and responsive. The quality of the final report was superb with a high level of detail and analysis which gave us the evidence to refocus our marketing plan with confidence.

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!

By 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.

The team at DJS were a pleasure to work with and the project ran exactly to plan, and provided great insight into a substantial piece of work we are doing to improve the Customer Experience. We'll be able to make some sound recommendations and business decisions based on the insight, ensuring we're prioritising and investing in initiatives that our customer value most. I would most definitely recommend them and look forward to working with them again in the future.

DJS have never let me down, and in recent projects they have pulled out every stop imaginable to get the job done within ridiculously tight timescales. I always know that if I work with DJS I will get results and recommendations that are accurate and actionable, with creative presentations and analysis.

DJS took on our research project at short notice and with a very tight turnaround period. All deadlines were met and the results have been extremely useful in promoting our policy positions to influencers and stakeholders.

By SmartestEnergy ,

DJS Research was very professional throughout the process from briefing of the research to presenting back the findings. One of the particular highlights working with them was the efficiency in which they managed the program to a strict schedule and provided progress updates through the process. It was a pleasure working with Julie and Ali and I look forward to next years research and any other bespoke pieces that we require.

By Sprue Safety Products ,

Well managed and well presented by David who was very knowledgeable, in control of the presentation and unfazed by questions from senior members of the Sprue Management and Executive team. It was also great to have Kate on the team. We like her heading up the account, and welcome her confidence, experience, and insights.

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.

DJS are responsive, reliable and recommended (by me)! They provide me with a regular flow of high quality respondents who fit the brief(s) well. We have used videos from these shoppers in many high profile customer meetings in 2014.
