Sarah Barker has worked in the world of marketing and advertising since 1990 at a range of agencies from small independents to the boards of some of the largest within Omnicom, Publicis and Havas Groups. At the tender age of 29 she was running a 70 strong £10m direct marketing agency, a promotion that was the result of her passion for helping people work happily and at their best coupled with her ability to make money.
For the last 10 years she’s been a Recruitment Consultant at Barker Graves where she’s met and managed over 1,000 people helping them to find the right new job. She was told repeatedly over the years that her input was insightful, more helpful than anyone else they’d spoken to and more honest.
She has always had a keen interest in helping people discover what they’re great at naturally because when she put people in the right job they were motivated, low maintenance and high performing. Her philosophy has always been that everyone can’t be good at everything. Success happens when people are deployed and cast where they can do what they naturally do best.
When she’s not enjoying being mum to her two daughters, Sarah loves to practice Parkour, eat like a caveman and explore the countryside in Sussex with her black lab. She also takes huge pleasure from singing in her two bands and helping local businesses and charities with marketing.
