Role overview

The Survey Management team play a key role in contributing to the success of Yonder Data Solutions. At present, the team consists of 10 Survey Managers, who report to the Director of Survey Services. We are now looking for an experienced, passionate Survey Manager to join our growing team. The Survey Manager will be responsible for ensuring surveys are set up and delivered to client’s specifications (but will not be involved in costing or managing reports). Experience in managing online research projects, online sample studies and international fieldwork experience would be beneficial. During periods of high volume, occasional weekend coverage may be required, in which case, advance notice would be provided.

Key responsibilities

End-to-end responsibility for survey management, from data collection to the client’s specifications to fieldwork timings. Responsibilities include:

  • ensuring that online surveys are set up to clients’ specifications;
  • checking questionnaires from receipt through to sign-off;
  • testing surveys to ensure they work on all devices prior to survey launch;
  • using mailing software for panels (Quenchtec/Marsc) to launch projects and managing online panel mailings;
  • completing all quality assurance checks by checking top-line results after the soft launch of projects and then conducting subsequent checks throughout fieldwork to ensure accuracy of data collection;
  • checking quality of verbatims after the soft launch;
  • monitoring and maintaining quality control checks throughout and post-fieldwork (processing removals as required);
  • monitoring quotas throughout the fieldwork period;
  • providing clients and internal staff with status reports; and
  • demonstrating excellent client management through a ‘common sense and consensus’ method of relationship management.

Required skills and abilities

The Survey Management team pride themselves in being professional, efficient and hard-working – consistently delivering surveys to the highest standards. We expect the Survey Manager to have the same professional, proactive and diligent approach to survey management; they must be willing to go the extra mile to ensure a high-quality product is consistently delivered. The Survey Manager must have:

  • excellent attention to detail;
  • excellent time management skills (with the ability to work on multiple projects at once);
  • excellent written and verbal communication skills;
  • ability to work independently and also be a great team player;
  • ability to communicate clearly and confidently with the internal team (other survey managers, scripters and programmers) and with clients;
  • ability to proactively solve problems and escalate issues if necessary;
  • ability to follow all survey management processes meticulously;
  • ability to use Microsoft office (Outlook, Word, Excel etc); and
  • ability to use the survey management software (Unicom Dimensions) and mailing software for panels (Quenchtec/Marsc).
