  • Flexible working options are available as part of their Flexible Working approach.

Who GfK is looking for

You may have taken time out to look after children or elderly/sick relatives, for relocation, for a personal health issue or for other reasons. You may have been working on a small-scale basis to fit around your other commitments or have not done any paid work for several years.
