Sarah joined CommBank in 2007 and after two periods of maternity leave, realised she wanted a role that would still challenge and motivate, while allowing her to balance family life. With the support of her leaders, she moved into her current position, managing a team in Operational Risk.
“With my first, and now again following my second child, CommBank has supported me with equally challenging roles, and a four day working week. I am still very busy, and you do need to be organised and surround yourself with good people. But there’s plenty of flexibility here for both my family and my career”, she says.
Sarah believes that women, in particular, have the ability to harness their intuition and understanding of people, to achieve success in a business context.
