The Serious Bit

Lara looks after our Market Research Agency roles, both freelance and permanent, and with her background, you can see why!

Lara spent 10 years in market research, both agency (MORI and Isis Research) and clientside (Legal and General, British Airways and Shell). Lara first joined Stopgap in 2003, and spent 8 years working across our Market Research roles, returning more recently as she just couldn't bear to be away! Lara's an adaptable type (having spent 2 years in sub-zero Montreal, and 3 years in Hong Kong, having left permanent UK employment with no job to go to) and works with us on a shortened hours basis, so she is available until around 4pm each day.

The Fun Bit

When I was little I wanted to be...

An archaeologist because I was fascinated by the Egyptians and Romans...and Indiana Jones of course! A week of back-breaking work on a dig soon put me off though!

My worst job was...

Waitressing! I know it's a rite of passage but I'm clumsy and found it stressful. Needless to say, my tips were poor.

In my spare time, you can find me...

Ferrying small children to football, swimming and play dates, when I'd rather be reading a book, exercising, or making our home a place I'd like to be!
