Head of the Willmott Dixon Foundation
As Head of the Willmott Dixon Foundation, Sarah Fraser is very much at the fulcrum of driving Rick Willmott's belief that Willmott Dixon has 'a purpose beyond profit'.
It is through the Foundation that we contribute over £2 million worth of activities each year to strengthen the well-being of society. This work to improve and enhance life chances for people was recognised in 2018 by the Queen's Awards for Enterprise, where we were only one of six companies to achieve this accolade in the category of Promoting Opportunity through social mobility.
A passionate believer in our ability to have a profound impact in communities, Sarah provides the strategic lead for the social value agenda within Willmott Dixon; embedding it within the business.
Before becoming Head of our Foundation in 2017, Sarah worked as a group HR manager where she honed her people focused skills. She says, “I am incredible proud and touched by the Foundation’s stories – the hard work and dedication of our people, the generosity of our supply chain partners and the courage of the people with whom we work, who overcome unimaginable odds to make their way in the world. I am now incredibly proud to be leading our team and taking the foundation into its next chapter.”
