Sarah started with the STR Group in 2018 and is now a Consultant for our US Architecture team.
Back home in the United States, I worked in various customer service positions and then for six years as the personal assistant to the co-founder of an international charity organisation. After moving to the UK, I went to work for the country’s second largest McDonald’s franchise, where I managed the hiring and onboarding process for 10 restaurants, as well as customer service and management training for 22 restaurants.
I started with STR Group on October 10th, 2018 as a Talent Acquisition Assistant for our Careers team. I spent 6 months in this role – recruiting for driven, determined and motivated individuals to join STR and its brands. As I was helping grow the STR Group family, I was watching my soon-to-be Line Manager, Charlotte Northam, doing amazing things in the NYC Architectural market and knew that I wanted to be part of her team. In April 2019, I joined our Architecture brand, Stride, as a Strategic Talent Specialist for New York’s Interior Design market. It was the best move I could have made! I love my team, am building fantastic relationships with world-renown client companies and am helping incredibly talented Designers find their dream roles! In these few short months, through hard work and dedication, I have shot to 26th place for overall billers and 8th for permanent billers across the whole company!
It’s not all about work
Why the STR Group?
The earning potential here is incredible. The office vibe is buzzing with excitement. We have a lot of fun, the teams are great, and if you are driven you will succeed. This is a great place to start a career as long as you are motivated to do well.

A note from Sarah
“I knew on the day of my first interview that STR is where I belong. I felt immediately welcome and at home with Scott and Rich at our first meeting, and I remember telling the Directors at my second interview that I belonged on that sales floor. I wasn’t wrong! There hasn’t been a day since I started that I have had second thoughts about my career; I truly feel like I am part of the family here. We have fun and we get a lot of work done, but most importantly I know that I can count on my team and I feel valued as an employee and as a person here. From other Consultants to the CEO, I have formed some really lovely relationships that I hope to maintain for years to come!”
