After completing an internship within the Consumer Insights team at Unilever UK and graduating from Liverpool John Moores University with a First Class BA (Hons) Degree in Business Studies, Sarah began her research career at Conquest Research in London where she gained significant experience across a range of markets and methodologies, working with clients such as L’Oréal, Pizza Hut, Costa Coffee, LV= and Thomas Cook. Here, she was commended for her work which focussed more specifically on New Product Development, Brand Health and Category Strategy research within consumer markets.  

In 2010 Sarah re-located to the North West and joined DJS Research. Here, Sarah was able to build and expand her research experience and skillset through the opportunities that working with a wide range of sectors and clients presented. As a Research Manager, Sarah was responsible for delivering bespoke research projects, managing the complete process, end-to-end. As a Research Manager Sarah was passionate about delivering insightful, engaging, and actionable insight for clients, whilst being sure to deliver on budget and to time.  

Having taken a career break to focus on raising a family, in 2021 Sarah returned to DJS Research as a Project Assistant, before being appointed Training Lead for our new JRE Programme. Sarah is really looking forward to working with the research teams at DJS once more and using her knowledge and skills to help add value wherever possible.
