DJS Research Ltd Selected For High Growth Programme

We have recently been selected for a place on the 2010 East Midlands Coaching for High Growth programme.

Coaching for High Growth is an intensive package of support funded by East Midlands Development Agency (emda) to help ambitious and forward thinking businesses to unlock and sustain their high growth potential.

Demand for places on the programme was extremely high with the East Midlands Development Agency receiving over 100 applications from businesses in the region. Each business was assessed for potential growth (to achieve sales growth of 20% or above per annum for a three year period) and the extent to which the programme could help businesses realise this potential.

DJS Research Ltd was one of 50 companies selected that will now receive a package of support for the next 12 months. The programme is designed to help us overcome barriers to growth and capitalise on existing strengths.     

Simon Hall, Programme Manager for Coaching for High Growth said “We have had a fantastic response and we are really looking forward to working with these ambitious and progressive businesses to help them realize their growth aspirations”.

DJS Research Ltd Helps Bright Prospects in the Local Community

During July 2010, DJS Research Ltd was pleased to welcome two year 10 students, Thilina Prathapasin and Jordan Murphy, into its Whaley Bridge offices to take part in the company’s inaugural work experience scheme.

The work experience scheme is led by Dan Williams, Senior Research Executive and former pupil of New Mills School, and supported by Danny Sims, Managing Director of DJS Research, whose children are educated locally. The purpose of the scheme is to provide local students with an insight into the workings of a successful agency whilst providing valuable experience to furnish future job and academic applications.

“The scheme has been a great success. The students were enthusiastic and willing to learn and had a positive impact on the office environment. Having been through both academic and job recruitment procedures myself, I know first-hand how valuable this experience will be to the students.”

Danny Sims, Managing Director, DJS Research Ltd said:
“Over the past few years, DJS Research has grown exponentially, however we have always taken time to give back to the local community and will continue to do so. Having these two intelligent young men in the office has been a refreshing experience and they have made a real contribution to our work. And, it is of course, always good to keep an eye on the bright prospects of the future!”

DJS Research Helps Remote British Overseas Territory Attract Retirees

St Helena is one of the most remote islands in the world and is currently only accessible by sea. Earlier this year, the British government postponed plans to build an airport on the island, and thus they face a real challenge in attracting investment to the Island.  DJS Research was approached to help understand how the Island could attract retirees.

Results from the study have shown that the climate and beauty of the island, as well as its relaxed pace of life, appealed to UK retirees, although as expected many were concerned by the limited access to the island.  However, a clear niche was identified who found this limited access appealing and were less concerned about the practical issues.

Linda Houston, Managing Director, SHDA, comments: “I am delighted with the work DJS Research has done on this project. The final report has given us great insight into the potential retirement market here in St Helena.

“DJS provided us with a highly professional, courteous service, which delivered the results on time and to budget. What's more they did it with flare and in a way which was totally appropriate for the clientele.

We never met and yet were able to work together from a location 1200 miles from the nearest land mass and two weeks travel away from the UK. This not only shows the power of the internet, but also that if you get your customer care right from the start, anything is possible.”
