At Regeneris, Jessica works on a range of strategy work, such as a combined economy study for the London Legacy Development Corporation on the future role of Hackney Wick and Stratford as night-time economy destinations and as cultural and creative hubs. Jessica has also worked on the new Brighton & Hove Economic Strategy to better understand the city’s economy and make Brighton a more competitive and fairer place to live and work.

Jessica also works on a range of economic impact assessment and appraisal projects, particularly on the strategic and economic rationale for public investment. She has worked for the Scottish Government in both Edinburgh and Glasgow on this, and has also undertaken economic appraisals of bids for the South-East Midland’s Local Enterprise Partnership’s Skills Capital Funds.
