MRS x RAS Accreditation
conffetti Our team has been accredited! conffetti

The Recruiter Accreditation Scheme (RAS) has been developed by the Market Research Society (MRS) and the Association for Qualitative Research (AQR) to raise the profile and status of recruiters, by devising a training and accreditation scheme that will recognise the knowledge, skills and competence of professional recruiters.

The focus is on the recognition of the knowledge, skills and competence requirements for professional recruiters.

The aim of the RAS is to raise awareness of the challenges facing qualitative recruiters, increase understanding of the issues by all those involved in the supply chain to ease some if not all of the constraints, and improve the research recruitment environment with improved recruitment undertaken as a result.

Congratulations to Alexandra Coleman and Joseph Hinton who have recently completed the Recruiter Accreditation Scheme (RAS) and passed with amazing results! See what they have to say below:

Recruitment is one of the most important stages of top-notch qualitative research, and we are proud to be MRS accredited in this area, ensuring we have amazing respondents for every methodology."
