Sarah’s background in social psychology, her work in research at the University of Aberdeen, and her experience with finance recruitment makes her the ideal candidate to lead Head Office recruitment.
Her focus on initiatives to encourage cohesion and collaboration between our head office teams, both inside and outside of work, is paying dividends as we look to maintain our culture during the rapid growth of our business.
Outside work, Sarah enjoys an active outdoor lifestyle with her family.
Prior to working for Newton, Kate competed to a high level in dressage – even her degree is in this area! We like to think that Kate honed her high level skills in precision, flexibility and balance in the dressage ring with a specific nod to her future at Newton. Kate’s energy and dedication is reflected in the success of her experienced hire team.
Outside work, Kate enjoys walking Marvin, her beloved Patterdale Terrier, on the Cotswold Way and threatens to do this 100-mile stretch in a weekend... one day.
Sarah leads our graduate recruitment team, using her consulting experience across a variety of public and private sectors – social care, retail, manufacturing, defence – to good effect as she runs the attraction, selection and onboarding of graduates.
Sarah subscribes to our adage of "if you don’t like something, change it", and is inspired by the energy and collegiate attitude of her colleagues across the business. A recent four-month sabbatical to travel around the world, meeting new people and sharing career stories, confirmed Sarah’s view that Newton is a special and rewarding place to work.
Paul has a passion for ensuring that we have the right people to work with every level of workforce across a diverse range of sectors. His analytical mind coupled with his long-term vision has given us clarity on the behaviours we need to achieve our goals sustainably, and his open mind and dedication to people development means that our recruitment process is fully primed to highlight the potential that will have the biggest impact for our clients.
He’s an adventurous soul too, with a passion for a challenge: the first at Newton to ride a tractor inner tube down the River Usk (for fun). We can’t promise inner tubes at one of our Super Charged Selection Days, but Paul and his team’s hard work and dedication has earned Newton the reputation as one of the country’s top graduate employers.
