Sarah Thompson is our new Director of Communications
Sarah Thompson will be joining our Senior Leadership Team (SLT) as our new Director of Communications on Tuesday 16 August.
Sarah joins us from Honeycomb Group where she has worked for the last nine years, leading the Communications team for the last five years as Head of Communications and Engagement.
During her time at Honeycomb Group, Sarah has delivered marketing, communications, engagement and equality, diversity and inclusion strategies. She led on the rebrand of the organisation, transformed staff engagement and internal communications, as well as significantly increasing brand awareness, social media reach, and customer engagement.
Prior to working at Honeycomb Group Sarah worked in communications at Moorlands Housing and Arch North Staffs, a domestic abuse and homeless charity.
Sarah said: “I started my career in housing back in 2004 after realising that the private sector wasn’t for me and I needed a role and an organisation that had real purpose, with values that matched my own.
“I can’t wait to become a Citizen and be a part of a fantastic organisation that has a strong social purpose. I’ve always believed that housing is a right, not a privilege and because of this I want to play a role in making sure Citizen is successful in its mission to provide homes that are a foundation for life.”
Our Chief Executive Kevin Rodgers said: “Our Director of Communications is an exciting and challenging role – from inspiring and motivating over 1,000 colleagues around our crucial mission to making sure our customers receive high-quality, tailored communication as part of our commitment to achieve customer service excellence and keep our stakeholders engaged and interested in our work.
“I’m really looking forward to Sarah joining our Senior Leadership Team and playing a central role to drive forward our objectives and shape our future.”
