Research methods: Street Interviews

We conduct thousands of face-to-face interviews each year for a range of national and international clients.

We have a network of over 800 street interviewers across the UK, all trained to MRS (Market Research Society) standards. Interviews usually take place in busy areas such as high streets and shopping centres, but we’ve also interviewed in sports clubs, swimming pools, railway stations, and outside major tourism and entertainment events.

It’s a technique that we’ve developed into a fine art by appreciating the simple fact that face-to-face interaction between interviewer and respondent can be invaluable in eliciting co-operation and building rapport. Our pricing is extremely competitive. But, just as importantly, we can guarantee that our service will be exemplary – the speed and efficiency of our fieldwork and turnaround is unbeatable.

“Public Knowledge were commissioned to carry out our cancer awareness survey with front line health and social care staff. They managed to achieve a useful number of responses within a very tight time scale and despite some significant contact issues arising. They were at all times flexible, professional and easy to contact and willing to change plans at short notice.”
