“As the new head of qualitative research, I’ve been tasked with bringing fresh and innovative qualitative approaches to life.”

It is now a leading name in the FMCG, property, financial services, government and media industries thanks to a combination of creative research methodologies and a focus on findings that make a difference.

“I couldn’t be happier to have Eva and Jo on board.  Already we have a wonderful collaborative relationship which our clients are starting to see the benefit of.  Hopefully they will be the first of many diverse and ambitious joiners,” said John Matthews, managing director of Jigsaw.
