Experience Level: Expert
We are a small London based marketing consultancy conducting original B2B business to business research and then publishing the findings in a range of trade journals globally, in a variety of market sectors.

For this new project there are two chemicals companies to be interviewed in Japan • one in Tokyo and one in Yokahama - which need to be conducted face to face (in Japanese), due to the technical / commercial nature of the subject matter.

TSW is not seeking analysis of the interview; what we require is an experienced B2B interviewer (not an interpreter) with the ability to probe using a detailed topic guide, following an on-line teleconference product / sector briefing.

When pitching for the work you need to advise what you would charge for each 1.5 hour face to face Japanese interview with an English verbatim transcript; as an alternative please quote for just supplying the audio file in Japanese for us to upload and translate in London. Clearly there are quality advantages in the interviewer preparing their own translation, but we would like to see the cost split out. We will secure pre-agreement with the named targets to the interviews, leaving you just to work out timings / mutually convenient dates etc. This task is set for a mid December - mid January target completion 'window'.

This role would be well suited to an investigative journalist or ex marketing manager / director - the key attributes are an inquisitive mind and the ability to probe detailed responses.

You should submit a brief 'bio' stating your prior interview experience, no later than 24th November; short listed candidates will be invited for a telephone interview prior to the 29th November, after which an appointment will be made.
