Sam Thomson is Business Development and Research Coordinator, based in the Montrose Jersey office. He primarily plays a business development role, supporting the identification of business and partnership opportunities globally and the coordination and development of project proposals.

This includes work for a diverse client base across the public sector (including UN agencies, DFID, EU and the World Bank) and the private sector. In this role, he has developed extensive knowledge of the requirements of varied clients and a technical grounding in multiple disciplines.

Sam also provides technical inputs at both the proposal and implementation stage to projects across sectors, with support including project-related research, analysis and writing. This has included acting as a quantitative research specialist coordinating a study involving various groups of People with Disabilities (PWDs) to inform strategies for their increased engagement in the DFID-funded NU-TEC programme in Northern Uganda, and providing monitoring and evaluation (M&E) and programme design support on a social investment project in the livelihoods sector in Rakhine State, Myanmar.

Alongside business development and research roles, he offers administrative and management assistance to active projects across Montrose’s global portfolio, supporting HR, communications, procurement and logistics.

Sam holds an MSc. in Evolutionary Medicine and a BA in Anthropology from Durham University, United Kingdom.
