In this role, you'll use hidden camera gear to capture your entire shopping journey. This is an excellent opportunity for those who love to explore different stores and locations. Your recorded experiences will serve as invaluable data for businesses looking to improve their customer service. The compensation range is £20 to £70, depending on the brief.
- Report-Based Mystery Shopping
If you prefer a more straightforward approach, this role is for you. You'll visit stores in your local area or even venture further afield.

For those who'd rather work from the comfort of their home, telephone mystery shopping is an ideal choice.
