About Sarah:

It is a real privilege to serve as Managing Director at Comply Direct; I joined the business in 2014 with a strong desire to continue my career in the environmental sector and I quickly knew I was in the right place. Having worked across most areas of the business in my time at Comply Direct, the thing I am most proud of is that the entire team are passionate about helping our customers achieve environmental goals and simplify complex legal obligations for obligated producers. Comply Direct takes a partnership approach and our suppliers and customers alike are an extension of our business - this is what makes our company mission to ‘provide both environmental and commercial benefits by always finding a better way’ live. The sector we work within is continually growing; the future of producer responsibility and environmental consultancy is very bright with ongoing improvements and an increasing desire from businesses to be part of a circular and more sustainable economy.

Specific interest within position:

Overseeing a first class customer, supplier and partner experience and ensuring we are strategically aligned to continue to realise our full company potential in the exciting years ahead.

Random fact:

When I was born in the early 1980’s the UN estimated the total global population to be 4.5 billion, in 2020 the figure is estimated to be 7.8 billion people all sharing planet earth!

Top tip:

If you believe in something, persist - where there is a will there is a way!
