Quote from Michelle Harrison, CEO, Kantar Public:
"It's quite an unusual and varied job, and for our interviewers who have been doing this job for years there is no doubt they find it very rewarding. They get insights into British life that many of us don't see, they know the work is extremely important and they know the work that they do gives the British population the opportunity to contribute to the quality of public life in Britain. It really is very special work, and we are extraordinarily proud of our community of interviewers."
Testimonials from our interviewers:
"Many is the day when I can look back on the interesting, friendly and kind people that I have met and briefly shared a moment with..."
"When I started, I didn't think that I would still be doing it five years on and I have no intention of stopping just because I have turned sixty-five, still going, still smiling."
