I am a research consultant with more than 15 years of experience, in a full-time and in a freelance capacity, in public and private sector research. Most of my work has incorporated a developmental or social dimension. I hold a Masters degree (Cum Laude) in Industrial Sociology. My career in research began as a lecturer in Sociology at the University of Johannesburg, where amongst other courses, I taught research methodology for the social sciences at an undergraduate level as well as supervised post-graduate research. My role also included designing and delivering courses in Sociology at an under- and post-graduate level. I have co-edited a book publication entitled Globalisation and New Identities: A View from the Middle (Alexander, P., Dawson, M. and Ichharam, M. 2006. Johannesburg: Jacana Press). I have co-written two articles published in an accredited journal as well as coordinated, edited and written for an annual NGO publication. I have written several articles and research reports, tenders and research proposals, as well as peer reviewed and edited papers over the years in the market research sector, for NGOs and for the academic sector. I have worked in a top market research company, where I received excellent training, worked across a myriad of industries, and across all aspects of the research chain - both qualitative and quantitative in variety. Based on many years of work in data analysis, I am able to deliver compelling insights from dense data sets. I have even conducted vlog analysis as new data collection methods are evolving. Desk-top research still remains an important data collection method, which I am also proficient in. I am passionate about writing and I have a keen eye for detail. I am a quick learner and I can work independently as well as with others. I have client management experience and have strong presentation skills. I am a diligent worker, I have never missed a deadline to date and always deliver on the client's brief. I have worked remotely for almost ten years and am set up to take on flexible work with immediate effect. Thank you.
