Assistant Director of Strategy & People
Sara has worked for WCVA since 2006 and is responsible for the operational management of activities such as grant programmes, membership, learning, marketing and communications. This includes the Active Inclusion Fund which aims to reduce economic inactivity and improve the employability of disadvantaged people furthest from the labour market.
Before joining WCVA Sara worked in both the public and private sectors, starting her career in sales and marketing in the manufacturing industry. However, when given the opportunity to work in the public sector for Devon and Cornwall Police, Sara began to recognise that a job can be about far more than just making money, it can also help individuals and the wider community, those facing the most disadvantage.
Sara enjoys her role at WCVA immensely and working in the third sector to use her passion and skills to help those who most need it.
When not working Sara likes spending time with the family, walking outdoors and visiting some of the best scenery and beaches that Wales has to offer.
