Freelance Research & Planning

An effective means of supplementing your internal resources, in order to help you meet the requirements & deadlines of your business.

I provide freelance research management, consumer insight & planning skills, working on either an interim contract or a more ad-hoc basis, to manage specific projects; I am able to work either at your offices or mine, dependent on your requirements.

Reasons why companies have commissioned me include:

  • Staff vacancies – when organisations are looking to recruit a permanent member of staff, but need support in the interim
  • Short/medium term staff absence, e.g. maternity leave, sickness, secondment
  • Too much work for existing staff and/or not enough time to do it, in order to meet deadlines.
  • Objective reviews/advice on research programmes & development of Best Practice

Companies who have benefitted include:

  • Those with an in-house Research/Consumer Insight function
  • Those who do not have an internal research function, but occasionally require more specialist support in this area
  • Research agencies

The key benefits I bring to all those I work with are:

  • Experience – ‘a safe pair of hands, able to hit the ground running’
  • Flexibility – a service tailored to your specific requirements
