Sarah supports business engagement between University colleagues and external partners, finding the correct funding mechanisms for individual projects and facilitating further partnership development.
Sarah enjoys building trusted and friendly business relationships with internal and external partners, supporting colleagues and employers to find answers to mutual challenges.
She is curious about people and their work, their business interests and challenges. Supporting their networks, and creating trusting, collaborative relationships where innovative and exciting projects happen is one of her favourite things to do. Sarah backs this up with well-organised research and relationship management, and by working closely with colleagues.
She has also been involved in supporting and developing Women's Rugby in both the junior and senior game, locally and nationally through coaching and committee positions at club and county level. All of her volunteer roles provide her with space to expand her skills for the benefit of her sport, as well as learning new skills in a fun and exciting environment.
Sarah spent 14 years running her own business, prior to which she was employed in various marketing roles with Atkins, Hiscox and Legal & General.
