Are you an enthusiastic changemaker, thinker and doer with a passion for people and culture? Do you want to make a positive change and help brands be more sustainable and regenerative? Do you want to work with people from all around the world and be surrounded by different perspectives? 

Then our ‘Research Consultant Development Programme’ is for you.  

In September 2024 we kick-off a unique programme in our offices in the UK, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. Over a period of 12 months, you will build a comprehensive skillset to become a research consultant. You will work on a full range of online qualitative and quantitative methodologies helping leading brands understand and act upon what matters.  

At the end of the program, you’ll have the opportunity move into one of our client-facing teams, work in a dynamic and collaborative culture where no two days are the same.  

What we do

At Human8, we unite a creative, smart and ambitious group of +900 people across 24 locations under one vision: connecting brands with people and culture to drive positive change. We uncover what matters to people and how brands can act upon it.

Your role

During the 12-month program, you’ll not only work on live client projects, but you’ll be given comprehensive training and experiences that provide you a fast track to a successful career.  

The specifics 

  • Learn who we are, what we do and how we drive positive change for the brands we work with. 
  • Get intensive training to give you the skills you’ll need – from crafting surveys or discussion guides, running interviews, moderating, analysing data, creating reports to presenting key findings amongst (brand) stakeholders.  
  • Work on live client projects, where you have the opportunity to experience client presentations and workshops 
  • Experience different client teams, meet and work with smart people around the world. 

Are you the one?


You are interested in gaining perspective of what and why people do what they do. You are commercially minded and enjoy working with and for clients. That’s why our people are sometimes graduates (but it’s not a requirement), they come from a range of backgrounds/degrees such as (but not limited to) business, psychology, social sciences and so much more.


You thrive on collaborating with others and are passionate about delivering to the high standards. When you encounter problems (inevitable for us all), you have a growth mindset to find solutions and speak up to address difficult issues in a human way. 


You speak and write fluently in English, and are able to work in a dynamic environment. You have experience in or are eager to learn: 

  • MS office package (Excel and PowerPoint)
  • AI tools (e.g. ChatGPT)
  • Speaking in front of internal and external groups.
  • Working in teams and building relationships.
  • Autonomously managing projects and your own time.

  • Competitive local salary package 
  • Holiday allowance in line with your local office
