  • Familiarity and experience in a wide range of qual and quant approaches, with an understanding of how best to utilise these (individually, as well as in tandem) to address the client's objectives.
  • High standard of report writing, making it easier for clients to connect the dots with clear communication and actionable recommendations.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Inspiring co-workers and sharing knowledge and skills with the team, recognising potential in the latest technology and other trends.
