Described by Eleven Recruitment’s Managing Director, Nick Smith, as a “cornerstone of the team”, we are delighted to be celebrating Sarah Stott’s 20th anniversary at the company this month.
Sarah leads Eleven’s recruitment activity across the middle, back office and finance, including roles in legal and compliance. With a deep understanding of all areas of oil, energy and commodity trading, extending across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Sarah’s knowledge and passion for the industry is inspiring, not only to new recruits, but to fellow seasoned consultants.
Joining Eleven, then named Oil Recruitment, in 2000, Sarah built an enviable network in the sector, allowing Sarah to be instrumental in the growth and success of the company, with hundreds of candidates successfully placed. Business development is still a big part of Sarah’s role, and is proving to be just as instrumental today.
“Twenty years is a large chunk of any working life. It’s rare for anyone to stay in a role for that length of time – it’s rarer still for someone to thrive throughout.” – Nick Smith.
With an admirable depth of knowledge in energy trading, risk, middle office and more, Sarah has supported many hundreds of appreciative industry professionals as they have built their teams and careers. It has been lovely to see a flood of ‘congratulations’ messages to Sarah on social media, including many a glowing statement, such as; “(Sarah is) by far the best consultant I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting”, among various posts telling of Sarah’s genuine and caring nature.
Reflecting on her time at Eleven so far, Sarah said; “An exciting and enjoyable 20 years. I have had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful people both clients and candidates over the years, observed their progression and development in their careers, marriage and families. Many have become friends too. The same I can say about my colleagues, many too have been with Eleven Recruitment for many years (although not quite as long as me!) How fortunate I have been.”
We wish Sarah many thanks for her 20 years, a huge congratulations and above all, many more happy years with us!
