“I joined Sensory Dimensions as a Junior Research Executive after graduation. After eight years with the company, I am now a Research Director, with responsibility for several major client accounts and a team of researchers. Sensory Dimensions has enabled me to develop expertise in sensory and consumer research techniques and apply this to researching food, drink, personal care and household products. I have developed my training skills and Sensory Dimensions is supporting my CPD as I study for the Society of Cosmetic Sciences Diploma. Working at Sensory Dimensions gives me the opportunity to help shape my future career, the future of the business and develop new and innovative research solutions for the industry”.
Jane Randall, Research Director
My placement at Sensory Dimensions has enabled me to apply the theory learnt at university to real life business problems. I have been given responsibility for a regular programme of testing and handled all parts from panel management, sample preparation and the analysis and reporting of results. I have also helped out with adhoc consumer studies. I have had a really fun time working with a great team of friendly and experienced people”.
