Grace O'Leary

Grace joined a very busy Field Team in the summer of 2016 and has been involved with the change and development of the department as it’s streamlined a number of it’s delivery processes.

She recruits and manages a team of interviewers based in venues across London and the North West for clients including NHM, V&A, Science Museum and Knowsley Safari. Grace is also responsible for monitoring fieldwork progress for clients in Gothenburg and Stockholm further to delivering their data collection training in 2018. Amongst other department requirements, she handles the coordination of all audio materials for transcription; including focus groups, in-depth interviews and Vox Pops shifts.

Keen on understanding audiences better, Grace enjoys learning about what drives and motivates them and appreciates how important it is for interviewers to be friendly, professional and efficient in order to get the best out of the survey experience!

Grace has a BA in Drama and English and is a passionate writer. She’s written and produced award winning theatre in the North West as well as having TV story lining experience.

In her free time, she’s a big fan of exploring the cities of Europe, loves to socialise with her friends and struggles to learn how to play the guitar.
