Sarah Godwin - Founding Director
Sarah is one of the Founding Directors of LAW Absolute.
After spending over a decade with two global recruitment companies, establishing and running their legal interim businesses, she launched LAW Absolute in 2003 with Victoria Wright and Antonia Klein.
Initially set up to specialise in interim legal recruitment, its specialisation enabled LAW Absolute to become the market leader in this field.
Having firmly established itself in the legal field. Sarah was instrumental in helping the business diversify in to permanent recruitment, and latterly has set up the Company Secretarial Division for the business as well as Board Appointments and Executive Search.
Sarah’s vision was to create a truly specialist legal recruitment business which would provide the most efficient, reliable and effective service in the industry. Her strategy and approach has always been focussed around attracting the most talented consultants in the market and to offer the best training, development and working environment in order to retain them.
“ Our strong belief is in order to become number one in the market you need to have the best consultants there are out there. In the first instance, that means making your company an attractive place to work, in terms of the financial offering, but equally as important the culture and non-financial incentives that make going to work and pleasure not a chore…as much as this is possible. This is the only way to attract the best consultants out there - the knock on effect is to have a business made up of incentivised and highly experienced consultants that will work hard on behalf of your business and provide a first class service to our clients.
Sarah’s professional reputation in the market, her extensive networks and established relationships continue to contribute towards the ongoing success of LAW Absolute. She currently splits her time across the In-House and Private Practice businesses.
Outside of work, she is a dedicated foodie with a particular interest in pork scratchings, peanuts of every variety and fish and chips, with her search for the perfect Chippie taking her as far as Guernsey.
