Which team and area do you work/specialise in?

I work in our market research and consulting team, specialising in senior vacancies within both pharma companies and external agencies

What are some of the typical roles you cover?

The roles I cover range from Associate and Research Directors, Senior Consultants and Business Intelligence Managers and Directors. I also cover C-suite roles.

What are the hot issues in your sector currently?

We’re seeing a real shift from ‘traditional’ market research agencies who are recognising the need to provide more than just research solutions for their clients. In a marketplace that is becoming increasingly  competitive, the ability to stay ahead of the curve and provide more consultative, insightful, actionable solutions covering the whole marketing mix is paramount.

What’s makes you #DistinctlyDifferent?

I don’t give up easily and I’m very detail orientated – love a good spreadsheet!
