About us

 

Sarah Collins, Managing Director  SC LinkedIn

Sarah began her career in global mobility as Managing Director of Sterling Corporate Relocation. She went on to establish Primacy Relocation’s first European office and served as Managing Director of Primacy UK for three years, before becoming Senior Vice President of EMEA, overseeing the company’s operations and client services in UK, France, Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland. She continued in this role following the acquisition of Primacy by Cartus, before leaving to set up Mobility People International. Sarah says ‘It is something of a cliché in our industry to say that we stand or fall by the quality of our people, but that doesn’t make it any less true! I have always understood the critical importance of selecting the right people with the requisite qualities and skills to suit a specific role and, equally importantly, a particular team culture. In fact, selecting and developing people has always been the most rewarding part of my role as a senior manager. Over the years, I increasingly felt that the industry was in need of a specialist recruitment company, staffed with people who really understood the types of roles and functions that go to make up a successful mobility team, and the very special types of people who excel in this demanding sector. It was a natural progression for me to move into this arena and I am very excited about building our services to our clients and candidates over the coming years’. Before she worked in global mobility, Sarah worked as a journalist and in retail, and for eight years ran her own security equipment company in Russia. She has a bachelors degree in Russian and French and an MBA in International Business. In her spare time she enjoys reading and entertaining, and is studying for a Masters in art history.

Angela has over 11 years of experience working within the global mobility industry.  Having started out as Angelaan Expatriate Advisor herself , progressing through the ranks to Operational Manager of a large expatriate team  in what was initially a corporate environment, later transforming itself into a shared services organisation.  This gives her great insight into the differing requirements for each individual role as well as the in-depth knowledge required to match the right candidate for the job in question.  She is passionate about putting together the best possible team to offer first class support to the expatriate community thus enabling the business to flourish.

With a B.Sc. Joint Honours Degree in French, German and Social Sciences, Angela has always had an interest in travel, culture and global mobility.  After graduating from university she went on to train as a T.E.F.L. teacher and has worked in France, Germany and Japan in language training roles.   Having gone it alone on her own international placements, she really appreciates the value of a dedicated team to support expat communities and understands how much their work contributes to the success of a business.
