About the company

What we do

We are a strategic quantitative research agency that specialises in delivering elegantly clear,
technically brilliant consulting. Born of a frustration with how quantitative research was
delivered, our mission is to ensure that research inspires foresight and enables our clients to
address their commercial challenges

Our culture

People are at the heart of what we do. We were founded with the aim of being a great place
to work for all and we have a fantastic team of talented individuals supporting us. Whatever
your role at the numbers lab at Firefish, we encourage you to keep exploring new ideas and
to think about different ways of solving problems, to get fresh results.

Well being

We are a community who look after and out for each other and looking after our mental
health is as much a priority as looking after our physical health. As well as providing health
care benefits to everyone in the company and access to an employee assistance
programme and trained mental health first aiders, we are also signatories of the Mindful
Business Charter, a framework for reducing unnecessary stress. We promise a philosophy
that promotes balance and wellbeing over long hours and burnout and we seek to support
everyone to work in a style that suits them best. We won’t pressure you to take on too
much, and we encourage and work with everyone to ensure that workloads stay


It is important to us that our research and our workforce embraces the views and voices of
people from diverse backgrounds and communities. We want everyone across our Group to
feel they can come to work feeling valued and can thrive in their roles. Our Diversity and
Inclusion Action Plan accelerates our ambition to becoming an inclusive employer.
As an Equal Opportunities Employer, we welcome applications from individuals regardless of
age, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, socio-economic
background, religion and/or belief. Our offices are accessible, and we can make required
adjustments to suit individual needs. We want to know how we can make this the best
experience that it can possibly be from the moment we meet you!

Our social impact

We believe in making changes in our world for the better. For many years now we have been
developing our long-term commitment to reducing our environmental impact. We have
formed a dedicated employee Green Team who focus on embedding green practices within
our business and we have been certificate holders of Environmental Management ISO
140001:2015 since 2009. We have committed to the MRS net zero pledge and have made a
change to our default pension investments into green investment funds. We want to
continually develop our social impact and we do this by allowing our employees dedicated
time off to contribute and give back to a social cause that is important to them, and by
developing our relationships with local charity and community partners.

Growth & Development

Nothing makes us happier than helping people grow and develop. We actively encourage –
and support - everyone to take on development opportunities, grow within your role and gain
promotion when you are ready. We guide a process of continual feedback from managers and
encourage everyone to build their confidence in their roles, feeling supported in their own
career growth. Our range of specialisms within Firefish Group means that there are lots of
opportunities to explore & develop new skills and potential to nurture a long-term career here

How we connect & have fun

We have always believed that the Firefish Group (and work in general) should be a place
where people can meet new people, find friendships and inspiration, support and learning. In
a world of hybrid working, we look for ways in which we can come together across our Group,
collaborate and have some fun – in person as well as virtual! We have various ways in which
we connect our people across the company, from virtual meet ups and curious coffees, to
intimate ‘Fish Suppers’ or wider social gatherings. You will find yourself coming together with
a load of welcoming, warm and truly fascinating people
