We caught up with Sarah Ward, our Construction Neighbour Liaison Manager to ask her a few questions.
What is your role in the Canada Water Masterplan – what does that mean day to day?
I am the Construction Neighbour Liaison Manager for the Canada Water development. My day-to-day involves working closely with the contractors appointed to build the Masterplan to ensure site neighbours and the wider community are kept regularly updated and that issues arising are addressed in an appropriate and timely manner.
What was your first job?
My first job when I was at school was waitressing at a local pub which I loved. It gave me many of the skills I use today – engaging, listening, and reporting back.
What are you most excited about for SE16 – now or in future?
I have been working in the SE16 since 2013, and during this time have got to know lots of people and businesses in the area. I'm excited to watch them grow and transform with the area, especially the local entrepreneurs and charities.
What have you learnt about yourself in the last year?
I’m usually out and about, but the pandemic changed that, so I have a new appreciation of home.
Tell us something that people don’t know about you…
I spend most of my non-working time outdoors with horses, llamas, and goats!
