Senior Programme Leader, TechConnect
A Civil Servant for 28 years, Sarah has held a variety of senior IT roles in HMRC including championing the department’s IT skills agenda and delivering significant technology-enabled change initiatives.
Sarah led the final phase of the project that exited HMRC from one of Europe’s largest IT outsourcing contracts in 2017, successfully bringing 11 critical IT services back in-house. In recognition of that work, Sarah was named Transformation Leader of the Year at the 2018 Women in IT awards.
More recently, Sarah played a key role in the pioneering TechConnect programme – a partnership between government and TechUK’s Public Service Board, sponsored by Jacky Wright, HMRC’s Chief Digital and Information Officer. Over 12 weeks, Sarah mentored one of the combined teams of Civil Service Digital, Data and Technology fast streamers and private sector high achievers, brought together to solve public sector digital challenges.
Outside of work Sarah is a keen showjumper.
