About us

MMC Research and Marketing was founded in 2015 and has become a highly reputable market research and strategic marketing agency and one that is known for high quality, transforming work.

Whether we are working on a sensitive, in-depth public health project to help communities, or helping to grow a fast-paced global software company, we fuse market research intelligence with commercial acumen.

When you start working with us, you’ll learn quite quickly that projects run on time and to budget. Research findings and marketing strategies are written in a language that’s easy to understand, delivered in formats that are engaging to read, and that provide you with actionable recommendations.

What you can expect by working with us

We’re a small, but perfectly formed, team of senior inhouse experts, bolstered by a group of trusted associates. We bring them in as and when we need to expand our team to deliver large-scale, national projects, of which we have plenty of experience with.

The beauty of working with the team at MMC Research and Marketing is that you get the benefit of having one of our directors overseeing not just the strategy and planning of your market research or strategy project, but the day-to-day running of it.

A culture we’re proud of

Our team is dotted throughout the UK, and we all work remotely, which means that you’re not paying extra for added overheads. It also means that you’ll be working with professionals who have their home-work-life balanced nailed. Well, most days!

When we’re not at home concentrating on client delivery, we love to meet up as a team to spark ideas and innovation – often involving lunch. We love trying new places to eat across the North East, where most of us are based. We also welcome the opportunity to jump on a train and travel to our clients’ favourite lunch spots – on us, of course!

Mental wellbeing at the heart of everything

Something we’re proud of as a company is the fact we really care about the mental health of our people and those that we work with. There are no token efforts here; it really is front and centre when it comes to our business decision making. It’s one of the reasons we were in the top 50 places to work in the North East.

We also volunteer our time to run mental health business surveys; and our Founder, Natasha McDonough, sits on a mental wellbeing board in her spare time.

What matters the most

Above all, we want you to enjoy your experience of working with us. It matters that you do.

To underpin our culture, we choose these values:


We always make sure we consider how others are feeling and know what’s important to them – clients, colleagues and suppliers.


We’re driven because we have the hunger, intelligence and acumen to drive our client’s organisations forward.



Our ability to create graceful simplicity from complex data has real value for our clients and with that comes delight. We enjoy regularly delighting our clients.


We pride ourselves on being welcoming and caring. We take time to really understand our clients’ needs and concerns whilst always remaining humble and empathetic.




We are driven, determined and quietly self-assured. We are confident enough to positively challenge our clients as well as industry norms. We’re not afraid of a challenging or complex project.


Our skills, methodology and experience allow us to delve deeper into the data. We translate the true meaning within the research and provide reliable and understandable evidence-based insights.

“The team at MMC Research & Marketing is knowledgeable and efficient, making them the perfect partner because they can be trusted to complete the project without any handholding from our side. They are very respectful of our time when internal input and sign-off is required, and scheduled meetings always have a focused agenda.”
