Later this year I will be studying 'Social Science Research Methods' (MSc). Through this course I aim to develop quantitative and qualitative research skills, and subsequently work in charities or NGO's, before applying to government roles.
I wonder how easy it is to transition to private sector jobs using these skills, if needed for whatever reason. Can anyone tell me if the skills I plan to gain are applicable to the market research, analyst, or even operational research roles?

The skills that a job in the public sector requires won't be that different to the equivalent job in the private sector

honestly, if you can, I'd start in government. NGOs are harder to get into, pay less, and don't have the structured training you get in the civil service.
The transition to the private sector is very easy. **
