RSM UK | Nov 2021 - Oct 2022

Senior Consultant

As part of the social policy team I undertook evaluations of public policy using experimental and quasi-experimental methods and undertook assessments of cost and benefits as part of these projects. Day to day, I undertook statistical and econometric analysis of employment and labour market data from a wide range of surveys and administrative sources. I also contributed significantly to the development and preparation of project proposals and research designs using different evaluation methods.

Institute for Employment Studies | Jul 2020 - Nov 2021

Research Fellow (Economist)


Institute for Employment Studies | Jul 2017 - Jul 2020

Research Economist


University of Sussex | Oct 2016 - Jul 2017

'Active US' Data Insight Coordinator

I built and applied statistical models to University, Sussexsport and Students’ Union participation data to create forecasts and reports. I looked at specific data sets and their inter relationships to schools of study, post graduate and undergraduate, first generation scholars, international students, residences, buddy scheme and volunteering, societies. I developed the use of the reporting function on the Sussexsport SCUBA leisure management information system. I presented and became part of the data led decision making in relation to the project. I provided meaningful statistics with visual representations of findings to help promote and raise the profile of the project.

MARTELLO BEACH LIMITED | May 2014 - Oct 2016

Bar Person

In this role I learnt to adapt very quickly and there was much team work involved. I served drinks to customers, completed cleaning duties as well as serving food. I also dealt with customer requests and phone calls in the evenings. I was involved with cashiering, this involved opening up and closing down, also working primarily unsupervised and prioritised tasks whilst doing so.

University of Sussex | Jun 2016 - Sep 2016

Junior Research Associate

Over the summer months I undertook an original research project titled: Are the forecast of amateur football pundits rational? This was funded through the JRA scheme within my university. The project vastly improved my econometric and statistical skills especially within the STATA programme. It helped me a lot as much of the work was individual and it encouraged me to seek out my own solutions to problems. My supervisor set me small tasks to complete within small timeframes and pushed my statistical knowledge much above that expecting at my level.

Debenhams | Oct 2011 - Dec 2012

Food Services Advisor

Also November 2013- January 2014 In this job I became very versatile and as I became more experienced was given more responsibility. I completed many different tasks including cashiering, clearing tables, cleaning dishes, serving hot food as well as stock rotation and assisting with data preparation.
