DP, Coding & Analysis




A fieldwork agency with expertise in all methods of qualitative and quantitative field management and recruitment across the UK.


We are dedicated to what we do, we are highly motivated to deliver first class service and we take the time to understand the needs of our clients and their research projects.


Our ethos is simply to provide quality and cost effective survey management to our clients.

We are a member of the Market Research Society and a Snap Survey Partner.





We feel privileged that through our clients, we undertake work across a broad spectrum of sectors for many leading companies across the UK, covering travel & tourism, finance, food and drink, charities, education and the public sector.


Here are some of examples of the projects we have been involved in within the last year.

Abellio Greater Anglia - Transport

We organise various types of research projects for Jungle Green MRC from running online surveys, to large scale fieldwork management, data processing, coding and analysis.  In the last year, we have worked on the following projects:

Station Travel Plan research 2014/2015, Season ticket holders VFM study, First class ticket holder research, Pre/Post station refurbishment research, Brand Track research, Pulse Check research, Stakeholder surveys, Airport research and Marketing communication studies.

NFU Mutual - Financial

Mindset Research have been a client of ours for more years than we care to remember, and we have undertaken many different types of research.  Many projects have been for NFU Mutual including: qualitative recruitment for depth interviews and group discussions.  Our interviewers have had lovely days out interviewing at festivals and shows across the UK.  One of our favorite projects is the Voice of the Farmer where we undertake the coding and analysis.   

The Mindset Panel - Food & Drink

In 2012 we assisted in the inception of the Mindset Food Panel, recuiting respondents through a variety of methods including on-street interviewing and social networking.  This is a unique panel for the food & drink industry to gain insight into topical issues and new products.  Amongst other topics, we have researched: artisan cheeses, baby food, carbonated drinks, health & well-being, chefs and Welsh consumers.

Our clients tend to be market research consultants or agencies, that either need a field agency or an additional field resource.  This is why we believe we have a unique relationship with our clients, seeing ourselves as a collaborative partner rather than a service provider.  

We also undertake our fieldwork projects directly with companies and individuals who do not have the need for a large research company, but require the expertise and professionalism.

Julie has contributed enormously to the success of Jungle Green. Her technical skills and assistance are invaluable, from data processing and multi variate analysis assistance through to online surveys and website design and management. She organises large scale field operations with professionalism, accuracy, timeliness and with a friendly smile. She has a natural flair for coding even the most specialist data sets.

Sounds too good to be true but it’s all absolutely true and not to be missed.

Janice Guy, Managing Director, Jungle Green MRC

"Pink Flamingo Shopper has been working with Taurus for a number of years now.  They are extremely reliable and professional and go way beyond the expected in order to support their clients.  Julie has dug us out of a hole on many occasions and is always very proactive with advice and recommendations.  Work is fast and thorough and delivered with a smile.  I would highly recommend Taurus to any client looking for robust support and look forward to working with Julie on many more projects in the future".

Helen Davies, Managing Director, Pink Flamingo Shopper Ltd













Taurus Research is the new name for Taurus Resources which was founded in 2001 by Julie Ford. Whilst on maternity leave Julie took the perfect opportunity to combine working from home with looking after the family. Initially offering data processing and analysis to market research consultants, as the family has grown so has the business.

We are a small team of dedicated individuals, whose collective experience extends to more than 50 years in the industry.  With a great team spirit we offer different skills to undertake the tasks in hand, with an innovative and fresh approach to each project.

We have a UK wide fieldforce of supervisors, recruiters and interviewers to complete the Taurus Reseach team.  


Julie Ford

Julie has over 25 years experience working in the market research industry.  She spent 12 years at an agency in Bristol gaining extensive experience of quantitative and qualitative projects before starting her business in 2001.

I would describe myself as organised, honest and hard-working,  I endeavour to bring these attributes and more to ensure that my client needs are met.  


We all need some rest and relaxation,  when away from the office, I can usually be found in the kitchen baking, pretending to be the next Mary Berry or cheering my boys on pitch side, and before you ask - yes I do understand the off-side rule!

Sarah Blenkinsopp

Sarah joined Taurus Research in 2006.  Her previous role as a legal secretary ensures her eagle eye for detail and her conscientious approach is invaluable when data processing or coding.  She also undertakes field admininstration tasks and preparation of work-packs.

I enjoy data processing the vast amount of questionnaires we undertake, especially the train surveys and deciphering the interviewers' handwriting!  


When I’m not at my desk you can usually find me enjoying a Costa with friends.

Janice Guy

Janice has over 30 years experience in the Market Research Industry, exclusively on the supply side, typically working on projects that combine both qualitative and quantitative techniques. This work has been largely in Transport, Travel, Tourism and Leisure, Retail, Direct Marketing, Advertising and Telecomms.

Jungle Green MRC in 2000, she is a valuable client and associate of Taurus Research,

After work, I'll usually be doing cryptic crosswords or playing tennis.
