Director

Sarah Kerton

Hello! I’m Sarah – I’m the Director of the Guild which means I manage the staff team, work with our Officers and Board of Trustees to lead the direction and strategy of the Guild, and support our elected Officers to lead the way.

I was born in West Brom and am Black Country born and bred. I went to Uni in Salford, just outside Manchester, where I did a degree in Popular Music and Recording. After a stint as a University lecturer, I started working in arts development charities and found myself working in students’ unions after falling in love with how they support students and young people to change their education and the world! I came to UCB from the National Union of Students, where I was a senior policy advisor.

My favourite cake is a proper Viennese apple strudel and my dancefloor anthem is All The Things She Said by t.A.T.u.
