On the inside:
Solving puzzles and cryptic crosswords, reading crime stories all feature highly in Sarah’s pastime pursuits; an interesting mix of interests that make for close allies with her day job. All of which apparently takes her mind off her day job. That said, Sarah is like most others in Blackhawk, there’s a reason she does what she does – she loves solving real life puzzles. Being a keen walker keeps her grounded with reality, walking throughout Kent at the weekends.
On the outside:
Sarah says that being naturally inquisitive, really helps in her job. You also have to have a keen sense of curiosity to follow a data trail as deep and complex as the cases Blackhawk handle. It helps to be as methodical as her too, as an investigation can throw up multiple paths to follow, with many often being red herrings. To be effective, you have to be thorough and efficient. Sarah’s extensive career in fraud investigations and due diligence has taught her a great deal about the tricks and techniques people use to hide and throw you off the scent. This is something that makes her a great mentor to others in the company. Sarah is also responsible for producing reports that turns research and analysis of the data uncovered into something a client understands and that provides a solid basis for action taken in the case.
