Alice Coulter, TNS BMRB

Alice is a qualitative research specialist with over 14 years’ experience. She works across a wide range of policy areas, with a particular interest in welfare and social justice.

During her time at TNS-BMRB, Alice has overseen many large and complex projects for public and third sector clients, including the Department for Education, Department for Work and Pensions, the Home Office, and Comic Relief.

Alice has experience across different sectors, including previous research posts at the London School of Economics, the Picker Institute and TNS-BMRB. She specialises in conducting research with vulnerable participants and exploring complex and sensitive topics. Examples include high profile research examining consumer experiences of the payday lending market; deliberative research for the Food Standards Agency, exploring the concerns of UK consumers in relation to food; exploratory research to better understand HM Revenue and Customs’ customers who need enhanced support with their tax affairs; a three year study for the Department for Education, setting up and running their prestigious Parents’ Panel which explored parents’ views and experiences across a range of key issues related to government policy; and a deliberative study on behalf of the Home Office exploring issues such as neighbourhood policing and crime fighting partnerships.

Having previously worked for TNS-BMRB from 2006-2013, Alice re-joined the organisation in 2015 from the Picker Institute – a charitable health research organisation aiming to make patients’ views count in healthcare. Prior to this, Alice worked at the London School of Economics, where she spent 4 years as a Research Officer in the Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion (CASE). Alice has a BA Econ (Hons) in Politics and an MA (Hons) in Conflict Resolution.
