“I joined PLS in May 2015 and over the last six years, I have seen the company grow with lots of change. But the one thing that has remained constant throughout, is the ethos behind our business.”
Sarah is Group HR Director at PLS Solicitors and qualified to CIPD status. Sarah joined the board of PLS Solicitors in 2017. In her time as Group HR Director, Sarah has seen the business grow from a single office of 30 employees, to over 300 staff across four offices.
Working in conveyancing can be stressful and is hard work so we have always tried to maintain a fun working environment.
Before joining PLS, I worked for a large corporate law firm in their HR and marketing teams. This diverse range of experience – working with people and teams, has stood me in good stead for my role at PLS.
In addition to heading up HR, I also lead on marketing projects working closely with our marketing agency. This is the fun part of my role, setting up campaigns and events for our teams. In 2019, I instigated our Great Place To Work Campaign, which has become an integral part of how we work today. See our ‘Vision Animation‘
I have an excellent team who bring their own strengths to their roles. We all work together extremely well with lots of laughs along the way. There is never a dull moment in HR. My team say that I am firm but fair and that I have a wicked sense of humour!
Outside of PLS
Outside of my work, I manage the two football teams that my son’s play for. Clearly a competitive streak in our whole family but with great spirit.
