Hello. We are Government Social Research (GSR).

We are the professional body for social researchers in the Civil Service. Our social researchers study and analyse various aspects of society, like people’s behaviour, opinions, and needs. This then helps the government make informed decisions.

Social Researchers in government work on a huge variety of programmes and projects and are at the heart of building better policy that can improve people’s lives. Our members are Civil Servants who support the government in implementing their commitments and deliver high-quality services for the public. Our core values are integrity, honesty, impartiality, and objectivity, and we are committed to recruiting people from a range of different backgrounds.

Looking for jobs and apprenticeships? We can match you to potential employers.
