SUNSTATE RESEARCH CAN HELP YOUR ORGANISATION
Sunstate Research Services is an independent focus group recruiting firm established in 1996. The company’s Director, Mandy Morton has over twenty years industry experience and is committed to promoting the company’s already excellent reputation for quality and service. Listed below are the key advantages for engaging SRS for your next focus group or in-depth interview recruiting project.
Commitment to the client
We aim to ensure that our clients’ requirements are met quickly and with a minimum of fuss. SRS is a totally independent company that specialises purely in focus group and in-depth interview recruiting, allowing us to concentrate on our core business. Our track record in successful recruitment reflects this.
SRS is committed to observing strict industry standards and codes of practice. The company has been accredited in the area of Recruitment for Qualitative Research by Interviewer Quality Control Australia (IQCA) since 1998.
An extensive database
SRS has a database of over 35,000 potential respondents throughout Queensland covering 50 different regional towns and cities as well as Brisbane, the Gold and Sunshine Coasts. The database covers a broad cross-section of the community, from CEO’s to the unemployed and from children to seniors. We have people from virtually all social and ethnic backgrounds, enabling SRS to find respondents quickly and efficiently.
Venue and accommodation booking at no extra cost
Our extensive experience and broad range of contacts in associated industries enables us to offer, at no extra cost, booking of venues for focus groups. We can also organise catering, and the hire of any audio/visual equipment required. You may nominate a preferred venue or we can suggest other options. We can also arrange quality accommodation for moderators in almost any area of Queensland, particularly rural areas where accommodation may be limited.
Innovative recruiting methods
As well as using our database to source respondents, we utilise many other methods including the internet, email networking, cold-calling, use of client lists, newspaper advertising and letterbox drop. We are proud of having succeeded in many cases where respondents have been extremely difficult to locate.
A fully trained team of supervisors and recruiters
All are highly experienced (supervisors typically have ten years experience) and operate to IQCA standards. We currently employ a large team of recruiters and regularly increase our numbers during the peak busy periods. Recruiting for all areas of Qld is conducted in our Brisbane office under full supervision.
Experience in recruiting for a wide range of topics
SRS has recruited respondents for many diverse topics such as banking and finance, travel, farming, medical, public consultation and political issues. We have also organised television audiences, plus taste and advertising tests for a huge range of products.
Experience throughout Queensland
Our industry experience throughout Queensland enables us to provide the professional advice needed to obtain the market research information required for almost any area. Our database covers both major regional centres/cities and most of the smaller rural regions. We are able to locate respondents from any area and welcome the opportunity to expand the scope of the database.
SRS has a wide range of clients in most areas of market research and we are happy to provide references on request. Whilst our clients are primarily located in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, we are keen to expand and serve clients in other areas of Australia who wish to conduct market research in Queensland. Please do not hesitate to ring Mandy Morton, Director, SRS on (07) 3847 6227 to discuss the services we can offer.
