Meet Sarah!

Sarah joins us as a Senior IC Writer and Editor. She’s spent the past eight years developing employee engagement strategies, and with a passion for writing and reading, she’s fitting right into our internal communications world

What makes me smile…
trying out new street food, planning my next travelling adventure, and the smell of brand new books.

What makes me frown…
definately bad spelling and grammer. It lurks everywhere!

I’m happiest when…
I’m discovering new places and new things. Whenever I go to a new city or country I love digging around social media to seek out the hidden bars and restaurants.

I’m saddest when…
I’m not being challenged. I can get bored easily and I always like to learn new things.

My proudest moment was when…
I was brave enough quit my previous internal communications job and make my dreams of travel a reality. I’ve just returned from a four-month trip, travel blogging my way across the USA and Asia. They say: “Of all the books in the world, the best stories are found between the pages of a passport.” And it’s true.

My first job was…
stacking shelves in my local Co-op as an A-Level student. It was less of a job and more of a social club – great fun!

My worst job was…
working as a temp, wrapping cardboard boxes in Christmas paper for shop displays at a well-known greetings card company. I lasted a day.

When I get home from work I…
sit down, log in to Twitter and see what new bars and street food places in Leeds I can check out and review for my blog. Failing that, I’ll have a flick through one of my many recipe books to decide what to cook for dinner.

I am most scared when…
I have to parallel park, under pressure, with a car full of friends.

The thing that makes me laugh most is…
Michael McIntyre and reading the Very British Problems Twitter feed. I love anything that cleverly satirises how silly we are in our everyday thoughts and sayings.

When I was a child I was very…
inquisitive, always asking “why?” I always like to find out about how things work and what makes people tick. It’s stood me in good stead for my communications career!

My favourite people in the world are…
my family. A family Whitehouse meet-up is always full of lots of loud laughter.

My first drink on a Monday is…
a cup of tea. Yorkshire Tea if I’m being picky.

My last drink on a Friday is…
a cup of tea! It’s the best way to round off a few drinks in the pub.

My favourite place in the world is…
Japan. The tranquillity of the temples in Kyoto, the craziness of Tokyo, the friendliness of Japanese people, and the tastiness of gyozas make me want to visit again.

One word that describes me is…
Indescribable!
