Our 3 Core Values

To listen and respond with impartiality

Make ethical choices

Act with integrity

As a Shropshire lass, Sarah’s heart stays very closely connected to helping people in her home county. Now living on the Welsh border, Sarah is supporting people around the border towns too.

As a voluntary Enterprise Adviser, connected with a local school, she has an vested interest in boosting the local labour market by supporting the local Careers Hub, Council and school Careers Leader to connect students to businesses in the area.

In her spare time, she enjoys walking her beagle Gwen in the countryside, a drink in the local and finding great places to eat.

"Sarah is very understanding and helpful, and when I have questions and don't know what to do, she takes the time to work with me to find a solution. Because I am still learning English, Sarah is very patient in explaining things to me when communicating."
