Sarah Beech

Employability and Widening Participation Projects Manager - Newcastle University

Sarah is responsible for the delivery of projects aimed at enhancing graduate prospects for students, with particular focus on students from under-represented and minority groups. Many of these projects support the strategic objectives set out in Newcastle University’s Access and Participation Plan. Sarah manages a team of Enterprise Advisers who design and deliver innovative enterprise challenges, both curricular and extra-curricular, in collaboration with external organisations, to support student with employability skill development. These events, which provide exposure to employers, help students develop their experience, skills and knowledge which collectively increases their confidence when approaching job applications and interviews.
