Head of Project Delivery
Sarah joined the always possible team in 2019 and is a specialist in improving client experience; managing complex, multi-faceted projects; internal culture and infrastructure development.
For over 10 years, Sarah has worked in a range of roles in the public and private sector focusing on People and experience management, advice and guidance and infrastructure design.
Sarah’s natural propensity to listen and support led her to her first role as a student services support officer leading to developing an understanding of the education landscape and the impact solid support can have on attainment.
Keen to expand skills, interests and knowledge, Sarah’s undergraduate degree focused on cultural development, social policy and the impact of technological advancements on identity. Incorporating an industry year during her degree, Sarah used her placement for professional development gaining the first of two professional qualifications in advice and guidance.
Sarah’s degree and professional studies have helped nurture analytical and critical thinking skills that have formed the basis of her career since. From working with hard to reach and disengaged young people in London, to developing infrastructure in the education and training sector, to building and growing an award-winning network of business professionals and education providers in East Sussex, Sarah is excited by challenge, problem solving, continual learning and improvement and making people feel safe, comfortable and happy in their work.
Confident in managing complex projects, Sarah often works with clients to develop new solutions to old problems and works closely with the always possible team to build and adapt internal flexible structures and working practices.
