“It was Francesca’s responsibility to produce comprehensive sales and marketing data on our own company and market research on others, to understand the size of market. Also, to understand weaknesses of Lovedays and where we should be positioning ourselves. 

She provided really valuable research into our customer base which we can use to better inform our marketing. 

Francesca was an absolute joy to work with, we would employ her in an instant if we had a role for her. She’s clever, self-motivated and has a real desire to be helpful and learn.”
