About Sarah

Sarah’s recruitment career began in June 1999 with Adecco UK as a Trainee Consultant where she progressed to a Regional Manager role. After being offered an international promotion, Sarah headed down under in December 2011.

Joining Cox Purtell in January 2016 in the newly created role of Client Engagement Director, Sarah is responsible for keeping in regular contact with all our clients ensuring we are exceeding our clients expectations as well as spear heading the new business development activity for Cox Purtell. She is also responsible for training, developing and mentoring Consultants in their Sales and Account Management techniques to ensure best practice to all of our clients.

Sarah’s mission is to deliver an unrivalled service to our clients with the belief that clients deserve to deal with a real person rather than a faceless recruitment brand. This is why she loves visiting our clients’ premises to get a feel for their company culture.

On the weekend you will find Sarah paddle boarding at one of the bays or eating her way through one of Sydney’s great café’s and restaurants!


Cox Purtell was the first agency I approached. I had an interview and within 4 hours I had been placed with a company for temp work. I was astonished at how quickly this happened. I will continue to express how fantastic Cox Purtell services are. This is the finest company in the industry. – Alexandra Morris
