Hi, I’m Sarah

I’m an Associate Consultant specialising in connecting forward-thinking, Tech-minded businesses across the UK with the best talent to grow their Data Engineering & Architecture capabilities in the Specialty Insurance Markets. With a particular focus on building communities of hard-to-find talent, roles I recruit for include:

  • Chief Data Officer/Heads of Data
  • Data Architect
  • Data Engineer
  • Data Analytics/Engineering Manager
  • BI Developer


My Background

An Irishwoman who has moved from the World of Opera to London’s Data Recruitment scene, common transition right?  I grew up in Ireland, studied as an Opera Singer but always had eyes on the fast paced city life – enter Pioneer and London. I’m now a hands-on recruiter, fully immersed in London Markets insurance, providing a consultative service to candidates & clients across Data Architecture & Engineering.


Why I joined Pioneer

I was moving country, not only switching jobs but completely overhauling my career. I knew instantly that Pioneer was the right choice for me. There is always continuous support, development & opportunity to build your desk and career. And, not to mention a lovely bunch of people to work with!  


Outside of work

Music, Gigs, exploring different restaurants and bars.



Music, shopping, gym.
