Consumer Studies Supervisor

Merseyside, Port Sunlight
Up to £12.06 per hour
Closing date
18 Jun 2024

Job Details

We are currently seeking an interim PART TIME Consumer Studies Supervisor, to work with our global FMCG client, renowned for brands such as Dove, Sure, Persil, and Simple, and become an integral part of their fast-paced FMCG environment.

The position is based at our client's scientific Research & Development facility in Port Sunlight Village, Wirral easily accessible by train and car. This is a full-time temporary role for 6 months requiring 22.5 hours per week (3 days Tue-Thur). Compensation for this role is £12.06 per hour (£23,524 per annum pro rate FTE).

As part of the new consumer facility in Port Sunlight we will have the opportunity to run consumer studies on-site - in particular, we will be running dishwash and fabric conditioner studies, where we will get panellists to come in and assess products. The recruiting of panellists will fall under the core team, but the interaction with individual panellists, placement of products, collection of data etc. will require a dedicated panel supervisor.


  • The panel supervisor will be responsible for implementing the studies designed by the CTI team member. This will involve the following:
  • Sample preparation (this can be a product or pieces of fabric, etc.)
  • Distribution of appropriate samples to panellists (whether it is posting or handing them in)
  • Meeting and greeting panellists on arrival and explaining the test logistics
  • Supervising the panellist during the test in case they need help
  • Sorting out any issues with electronic data collection
  • Doing simple data analysis following the end of the test.


  • Good people skills are essential as the role involves constant interaction with panellists. The role holder must be able to put panellists at ease and help them if necessary.
  • We are looking for excellent organisation skills so that all tests can be run in time and in an orderly manner. Flows of panellists must be managed on busy days.
  • Some basic IT skills are desirable - the role holder will be taught how to use certain applications, but they must be comfortable with electronic devices such as tablets for running the applications.

Port Sunlight working environment:

  • Free onsite parking
  • Staff shop discounted products
  • Free parking onsite
  • 5 mins walk to train station serving Liverpool & Chester
  • 20-minute drive from Liverpool city centre/30-minutes drive from Chester
  • Disabled parking
  • In the heart of picturesque Port Sunlight village
  • There are also several site clubs available to join covering a range of topics including Book Club, Running, Choir, Pool, Genealogy and much more.
  • The sites have three catering outlets which provide a range of hot and cold food and drinks daily.
  • In addition there are a range of vending machines and cold water dispensers around the site accessible throughout the day.
