What is your role at CEIS?

I am the market research officer here at CEIS and my role involves undertaking a mixture of primary and secondary research to gain an understanding of different market sectors to inform market assessments, feasibility studies and business planning/strategy documents.

The variety of clients we have means my work is very varied and I get to learn about lots of different social enterprises!
