About Sarah

I have been with the NBN Trust since April 2011 in the role of Finance and Business Officer and have recently moved into the Finance and Business Manager role in April 2022. It is an exciting and busy role which I enjoy.

I recently achieved a distinction in the level 3 AAT diploma which was a very challenging and exciting course and I am now excited to implement the knowledge I have gained from my studies.

In my spare time I love to go for country walks and be outdoors as much as possible with my husband and two sons. We spend many a holiday camping in the UK with our dog Oscar!
