Sarah Bastin

Perms Recruitment Consultant

From busy city living in London, to a quieter lifestyle in South Wales, our latest Perms Recruitment Consultant, Sarah, certainly doesn’t shy away from the challenge of change. Adapting to a different pace of life in her exciting new career at Work Wales, Sarah is thriving in her fast-paced role at the Perms desk, where she cites the unpredictability of external factors being one of the more challenging aspects of her job.

It’s true that in recruitment, no one day is ever the same; but it’s this, combined with the experience of meeting new people and a range of dynamic personalities on an almost daily basis, that Sarah truly loves about her career in the recruitment industry. Prior to taking on a position at Work Wales, Sarah’s first experience into the realms of customer service followed shortly after her graduation from the University of South Wales.

With a history degree to her portfolio, and a tonne of ambition to carry her through, Sarah opted for life in the city and moved to London where she went on to spend 6 years in various customer facing roles. From airlines to estate agency work and then recruitment, she fast realised her passion for working with people. In 2019, Sarah moved back home to Wales and settled in recruitment for good.

Joining us in May 2020, Sarah now works alongside Kim Simpson, and together they support the functionality of the Perms Desk. Day-to-day, Sarah’s role includes onboarding new clients, sourcing and interviewing candidates, invoicing and much more. Outside of work, you’ll find Sarah socialising with friends, taking long walks through some of Wales’ finest tourist hot spots and playing with her gorgeous puppy, Bertie.

"I’m really excited to be working with local Welsh businesses and targeting Cardiff after recently relocating here. It’s great to work for a home grown female owned recruitment company who genuinely care about their candidates, client and staff." – Sarah.
