Now she’s landed a job at her latest beach - Suzuki motor dealer Pebley Beach in Cirencester.
Sarah (23) spent six years travelling the world, teaching holidaymakers how to kayak, canoe, or stay upright on a paddle board. And at Cotswold Lake she gained her powerboat licence.
Now she’s embarked on a new career - selling cars for Cirencester’s Suzuki franchise.

“I was very picky when I was selecting jobs for which to apply. Then I saw an advertisement for a trainee sales executive at Pebley Beach, and it felt like the job description had been written for me.”
