After graduating from Cambridge University with a degree in Spanish and French, Sarah returned home to complete her GDL and LPC at Northumbria University. While Sarah thoroughly enjoyed living and working in Spain, first in Bilbao and then in Santander during her year abroad, she knew that her heart truly lay in the North East of England, and she was certain that she wanted to return home to work.
Sarah says it was our friendly culture, which promotes team work and excellent client service, that stood out to her when she completed the vacation scheme in 2015. She returned to the firm in 2018 as a trainee, with her first seat in the Banking and Restructuring team – working on various types of finance transactions for lenders and borrowers including refinancing, restructuring, new lending and advising on security and guarantees.
Now Sarah has switched to Corporate, where her banking expertise will no doubt come in handy supporting businesses looking to access funding for growth, mergers and acquisitions.
Outside of work, Sarah can often be found either at the gym or in the shops! She is also a keen runner and enjoys trotting out with the Muckle runners.
