    I’m hoping people on here can help me.

    I work for xxxxxxxxxxx , an independent market research agency based in West Yorkshire and we have been commissioned to run a study to gain insight into how Filipinos find life living and working in the UK.

    It would involve participants attending a focus group with other participants on Saturday 14th / Monday 16th September in London.

    We’re looking for Filipinos who were born in the Philippines and are now living in the UK and working in London to take part. We need both men and women and would need to conduct a short phone interview with them to see if they meet the criteria.

    We are offering a generous cash incentive to anybody who qualifies and attends the focus group.

    If you are interested in participating, please contact us so we can arrange an initial phone to see if you meet our criteria:


    If you're not in the London area but know other people who are and may be interested, we'd really appreciate it if you could ask them to get in touch.

    We are a genuine market research company and are not trying to sell anything.

    Kind regards,

    Sorry, I assumed it would be okay as we're not advertising or selling anything, just looking for participants for a study into Filipino life in the UK.

    Feel free to remove the post if this breaks the rules and isn't relevant to your members.

    The issue is that we cannot vouch for your company and we don't know what any Filipino member would experience if they took up your market research opportunity, hence we have a blanket ban on this kind of thing.

    I am aware of market research companies and I have participated in these kind of focus groups some 30 or more years ago and I know that they can make generous payments for people's time but this is not the place to be recruiting for such.

    I will leave the post but I have removed the contact and company details.

    Actually, that is exactly what you are doing.

    Not criticising, but after 40 + years in the business, I know my marketing and sales techniques. :like:
