Description

It is with heavy hearts that we invite you to join us in farewelling Sascha Jenkins as she leaves the University of Sydney after almost 18 years to take up the role of Director, User Experience and Planning at UTS Library.

Sascha started working at the University of Sydney in 2000 as a receptionist at the Careers Centre whilst finishing her PhD in Australian History. During her time at the Careers Centre she worked across the areas of careers information, administration management and industry development in addition to producing three baby boys. In 2011, Sascha moved to Sydney Nursing School as Learning and Teaching Operations Manager and then Clinical Placement Manager. In 2012 she became the University’s ClinConnect Co-ordinator for NSW Health and was involved in the establishment of the Office of Clinical Education Support as the first Executive Officer. In 2015 Sascha took on the role of Manager, Curriculum and Academic Administration in the Faculty of Science where she was heavily involved in both the curriculum and faculty reviews. This experience led to an opportunity to be involved in setting up a new campus at Westmead which is where Sascha has been since early 2017, working with internal and external stakeholders to support the growth of education and student programs.

Sascha rightly has a reputation as being an incredibly hard working individual with a keen ability to identify and resolve challenging issues. Always mindful of the student experience, no doubt from her many years in the careers centre, Sascha was (sometimes excruciatingly!) fair and balanced in her approach to any task, ensuring that all stakeholders were considered. Sascha’s ability to understand, apply and develop policy has also been a fixture of her career at Sydney evidenced by a significant contribution to various policies and governance frameworks. Ever the professional, Sascha will also be greatly missed for her excellent stakeholder engagement and ability to think and operate at a strategic level, skills she demonstrated through her involvement in establishing both the OCES and her work with the Westmead Initiative.

Please let us know by RSVP if you can come and join us at the Courtyard on Thursday 25th October 4:30pm - 6:30pm for drinks and nibbles to farewell Sascha and wish her every success in her new role.
