Hi, my name is Sara and I joined Lhasa Limited as a Sales Executive in May 2019. My role involves talking to clients and prospective members, making site visits and going to conferences all around the world.
I graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2015 with an MChem in Chemistry with Study in Australia; I spent my third year at the University of Queensland in Brisbane. Although I thoroughly enjoyed my degree, I knew I wanted to work in a chemistry related role with more of a people focus.
Since graduating, I have worked in Student Recruitment roles at both the University of Leeds and Leeds Beckett University, with a focus on STEM Outreach and Widening Participation. I really enjoyed my time at these institutions and developed many transferable skills including confidently presenting on a range of topics to audiences, from University Deans to primary school children.
I chose to work at Lhasa Limited as it offered an opportunity to develop my scientific knowledge and skills at a not-for-profit company and educational charity. I was very impressed by the software that Lhasa produces and the ethics of the company with regards to the sponsorship model and knowledge sharing.
Outside of work, I enjoy knitting and sewing clothes and sometimes even squeeze in some cycling or running. I am always keen to learn a new skill/hobby which has seen me recently start Japanese language lessons. I’m never too far from a craft beer event either!
