Sarah Usher

I started Wavehill as a Research Consultant in May 2019, then progressed to Consultant in October 2021. Throughout my time, I’ve had the chance to get involved in a variety of projects and to really find my specialism. I’ve also had many opportunities to undertake training around topics I’m passionate about such as effective engagement with young people, and the creative reporting processes.

Along with my day-to-day role, I am part of the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion group. Through this, we look at our internal processes and asses their accessibility as well as our position regarding diversity within the company. This has resulted in improvement in our internal processes for employees; ensuring our working culture enables a productive and comfortable environment where all employees are able to excel. For example, we operate a flexible working pattern around core hours, and follow a one team approach when bidding for new projects. This encourages a better work/life balance for our staff and a feeling of adding value as employees.
