RA Consulting is the consultancy arm of the Research Academy. At the Research Academy, we provide the leading qualifications for the research sector. Our consultancy arm provides high-quality research services.
Here’s what makes us unique – other than our appalling sense of humour, that is.

You’ll have the best of both worlds.

Your stakeholders want both high quality research and insight that drives practical solutions. Each member of our team has both an academic and a commercial grounding. We understand best practice in research, and we have the business savvy to deliver actionable recommendations.


We’re great to work with.

Yeah, right – everyone says that. But seriously, we’ve been in your shoes. When you call us, there’s always someone really smart and engaged on the other end of the phone. We’re responsive, we’re friendly, and we do follow-up work without claiming ‘scope creep’ as soon you ask an additional question. We know that your deadlines might change, and that you may need to accommodate additional requests from senior managers.

We’re real people. And we like to work with real people. So we take the time to get to know you.  For instance, we like burritos. And fitness. And geeky stuff. What do you like?
