Since setting up as a freelance consultant in 2009, Sarah has worked with a number of blue chip organisations including law firms, professional services and investment banks, largely focusing on campus recruitment. Her most recent assignment has seen her covering a range of senior campus recruitment roles in-house at Credit Suisse.
