Upon leaving school I had no idea what I wanted to do as a career so, instead of jumping into a field that I might have an interest in, I decided to put college and university on hold and enter the world of employment at 16.
Over the next 6 years I worked for a clothing company where, as well as designing women’s clothing for a range of high street shops, I had the opportunity to travel throughout Europe and North America. While I enjoyed my work it wasn’t really for me; I wanted a job that really engaged my brain. Following this realization I enrolled on an Access to Higher Education course where my love for research began!
Following my Access Course I completed a degree in Sociology where my desire to work in research was reaffirmed. Since completing this in 2010 I have been working in Market Research in both quantitative and qualitative fields and started working for Marketing Sciences as a dedicated qualitative researcher in March 2013.
As a Qualitative Researcher I am involved in all aspects of the research and particularly enjoy the data collection and analysis aspects.
