Born and raised in Sydney, Sarah’s recruitment journey first began in 2005 while working as a specialist within the finance sector. It didn’t take long however for Sarah to identify an ongoing industry issue – a lack of customer care was having a significant impact on client and candidate outcomes. Sarah recognised the opportunity to solve this problem through the creation of an innovative new business. In 2010, Sarah launched SB Recruitment and hasn’t looked back since. From humble beginnings to a team of eight dedicated staff members, Sarah and SB Recruitment continue to deliver a much-needed personal touch to the accounting, finance, administration and customer service sectors. Sarah’s hands-on approach and desire to highlight customer care as a core value of her business is just one of the many ways SB Recruitment continues to deliver a seamless recruitment process through fulfilled candidates and clients.
