Just wondering what everyone puts for MS sites that ask for a supporting statement when applying for a task.

I applied for a couple for ipsos last week that were local to me and offered a good rate and didn't get any. Was just wondering if what your write when applying affects this.

Thanks

It's been YEARS since I did anything for IPSOS, what sort of things are they asking for in regards to the supporting statement?

Nothing specific, just a reason, generally I just put things like I will be in the area and want to provide feedback on customer service.
When I first started maybe a month ago, I got 2 really good paying jobs and the report was so easy and quick to do. I wrote more detail than needed!
Just to note there are 2 companies operating with the name ipsos, the one I'm talking about has the app ishopforipsos

I haven't worked for this one but for others I put pretty similar to you - I am an experienced mystery shopper committed to quality customer service sort of thing.

I've worked for Ipsos for a long time so I usually put something like "I have carried out this type of task successfully in the past" If it's something like the Highways Agency ones or Dartford crossing I add I am an experienced motorist or similar waffle.I also add that I have not carried out this task for over 1 month etc when they put a limit on the number of times you can do it. If the task asks for a particular qualification such as Android or iPhone user it's also worth adding I am an iPhone 7 user or whatever.

PS there's only one Ipsos company but they took over GfK Mystery Shopping last November and they still seem to be running it separately at https://ipsosmysteryshopper.co.uk/ for now.
The original Ipsos site is the one you mentioned at uk.ishopforipsos.com
