About Sarah Martin
Sarah has worked in the field of people management and development for over 15 years across learning and development, recruitment and generalist human resources roles. Since 2017, Sarah has focused her work and research to the field of diversity, inclusion and wellbeing.
Sarah started her career in the corporate sector working for Coopers and Lybrand (now PWC), Deloitte and Barkers Norman Broadbent (BNB). Whilst at BNB, Sarah worked on recruitment campaigns for the Home Office which gave her the opportunity to become involved in assessing candidates applying under the Guaranteed Interview Scheme. Sarah became the disability champion, and supported candidates with a range of disabilities to participate in the recruitment process by putting the necessary adjustments in place to compete on a level playing field with other candidates. This sparked a flame and marked the beginning of a journey to combine her career and studies alongside her passion for social issues, belief that people should be able to be themselves at work and everyone should be given the right opportunities to flourish.
Sarah moved into the not-for-profit sector, and worked for Médecins Sans Frontières, a humanitarian medical aid NGO and Thames Reach, a homeless charity.
In 2013, Sarah set up as a HR consultant and has managed her own business, alongside having two children and training as a coach during this time. Whilst she certainly wouldn’t mention this in a profession setting, as it’s just not the thing to do, one of her greatest achievements during this time was potty training a two-year-old whilst breast feeding a 6-month-old baby on demand.
From 2013 to 2018, Sarah worked in various HR Project Management interim roles with the Association of Commonwealth Universities, supporting the Head of HR to design and deliver the people strategy. Sarah also worked with Teenage Cancer Trust, Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing, Single Homeless Project, TLS Solicitors, Youth Music and various coaching clients.
Sarah is also a trained coach and focuses her practice on career coaching and maternity/parental transition coaching. Sarah is working with organisations, parents and parents-to-be to manage the transition from being a working individual to a working parent, enabling them to effectively manage a successful return to work and continuing their career development. Sarah also coaches returners who have been out of the job market for over a year and young people to get their first jobs.
Through her coaching, consultancy and campaigning, Sarah works to improve the lives of as many people as possible to create lasting social change. Sarah is a passionate diversity and human rights campaigner and uses her work as a business tool to give back. See more at We Support
