Sarah spent 17 years in the legal department with H M Land Registry before opting for a career change to become a Legal Advisor for Touchstone Housing Association as part of the Company Secretariat. Over time she became involved in governance issues, particularly during the merger with Focus Housing to create Midland Heart Limited. When the Midland Heart operation moved to Birmingham, Sarah was offered a position with a local law firm as Governance and Legal Admin Manager working with Housing clients and undertaking some conveyancing. After 3 years Sarah was offered her current post, as Assistant Company Secretary of Orbit Group Limited, and she jumped at the change to get back into the hub of the housing world. In her current role she is involved in every aspect of corporate governance, regulation, legislation, recruitment, servicing the boards, maintenance of registers, processing legal documents etc.
