We provide research services for companies and organisations, with a particular focus on working with the UK education sector. Every job we do is different. Every solution is bespoke.

We talk to our clients, and we take time to understand their needs.

We like finding stuff out. We love data. So go on, why not give us a challenge!

    Sue Butler (Senior e-learning Policy Manager)
  • “In 2013 Timmus Ltd undertook an impact study for us. The research was very thorough, the project delivered on time and to budget and the final report was very clearly written with sound recommendations. I will definitely recommend you.”

    Peter Munday (Head of Governance and Strategic Development)
  • “Timmus helped us to identify our priorities and map a cost-effective way for us to get the answers we needed… We really appreciated the on-going dialogue throughout the project, which allowed us some flexibility to respond to results as they came in… We are very happy to recommend their services!”
