Molly May Calland
I am a project manager within Renaisi’s Consultancy Team. Since joining the team as a researcher in April 2022 I have worked on a diverse range of projects across several thematic areas including employment, health, gender, refugees and asylum seekers, young people, social action, and place. I am particularly interested in using qualitative and creative methods to engage research participants and communicate findings.
My Skills and Experience
My bacgrkound is in research in the third sector, having worked as a Research Assistant for The Leprosy Mission England and Wales and more recently as a Researcher for The Salvation Army. In these roles I have been responsible for conducting interviews and surveys, analysing data, undertaking literature reviews, and writing reports and briefings. I have worked on research across a diverse range of topics including beneficiary feedback mechanisms, health system challenges in Ethiopia and colonial legacies within the charity sector.
I hold an MA in International Development. Whilst writing my Masters dissertation I participated in a placement with the charity Kids Club Kampala and conducted fieldwork with their clients to explore the impact of their vocational skills training programmes on women’s empowerment, opportunities, and choices. I also hold a BA in History.
My Hobbies and Interests
In my spare time I enjoy playing tennis, swimming, and reading.
