What you’ll do……

  • What research won’t you do, is probably a better way to get a feel for this team and the work they deliver.  The projects are varied, the clients are not all big names, and their problems are diverse.

    • You will be experienced with attending qualitative fieldwork (e.g. focus groups, interviews) to assist in analysis and interpretation.
