DYW Moray has fulfilled one of its own targets by appointing 24-year-old Sarah Baxter as its new manager.
Sarah joined the DYW Moray team in 2016 as a co-ordinator but was this month appointed the service’s new manager.
One of DYW Moray’s goals is to open more opportunities for 3 to 24-year-olds to develop their employability skills and Sarah says her progression within the government funded project has ticked that box.
“Clearly I am delighted to be taking on this new role. There is nothing more satisfying than working with young people and the businesses to increase employability opportunities within Moray.
Encouraging the education services and the business world to work together to show there are opportunities to be had here is only ever going to put Moray on the map as a place people want to live and work.
“It is a challenging role, but I am embracing it and am looking forward to moving the project on.”
Sarah who has been the acting manager since last November added:
“My new role, now it is official just goes to show what can be achieved. DYW Moray have supported me with training and provided me with a mentor enabling me to take on this new exciting job and that’s exactly what we are emanating across the region within schools and the companies that we work with.”
