How do I sign up, apply or refer a friend?

How do I sign up?
Really easy! Simply click on the Sign Up button to register and receive email updates about new opportunities.

How old do I need to be?
We recruit people of all ages for paid research projects. However, the majority of the research is relevant to those aged 18+. Anyone under the age of 16 will be recruited via a parent or guardian, who will also be required to attend the research session.

What happens then?
Once you have signed up, you will receive emails from us notifying you of new paid market research and usability testing opportunities, plus referral offers and our quarterly newsletter. The frequency of emails you receive will vary depending on your location, how much of your profile is complete, and therefore how many relevant emails we can send to you.

We are most often asked to find people in the larger cities, so if you live in Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, London or Manchester you will receive on average 0-5 emails per week. In the smaller towns or villages, this will be less. We often have UK wide projects, which we send to everyone.

When you spot an opportunity you are interested in, apply to take part.

How do I apply to an opportunity?
If you want to apply to take part, please click on the ’Apply here’ button on one of our emails or log in to your account on our website and apply to any of the opportunities there. Don’t forget to press the ‘Submit’ button at the end.

You will then be taken through a short questionnaire; we use the answers to these questions to determine who may be eligible to take part.

How do I refer someone to take part?
If you received an email or spotted an opportunity on our website that made you think of a friend or family member, then that person could be suitable to take part in paid research and you could win a reward for referring them. We only offer rewards sometimes, so please check each email or webpage to find out if this is the case.

If you have received an email, you can either click the ‘Send to a friend’ button; if you are on the opportunity page on the website, please click the ‘Refer’ button. Both will take you to the online referral page. Alternatively, please drop us an email at info@peopleforresearch.co.uk with your friend or family member’s name, contact details and location, plus the research topic. Don’t forget to ask permission from your friend or family member before you refer them.
