Sally is the lead for Placements and Internships at Worcester Business School. Her primary responsibility is to support Business School students to boost their employability by gaining real-life experience of the workplace alongside their studies via the 12-month Placement, 3-6 month Masters Internship or the Springboard Work Experience programmes.

Graduating in 2000 Sally has worked with a number of large organisations including Christie’s London and BAE Systems. With her degree and professional background in drama, Sally is very well placed to support Business School students to develop self-awareness and confidence, as well as communication, presentation and Interview skills.

Sally has been with the Business School since 2012, and since taking over the Work Placements and Internships role has expanded the range of experiences available to students by creating the Springboard Programme. Open to all students in the school, as well as recent graduates, this unique programme offers valuable introductions to local employers and has strengthened the University’s links with the local business community.
