Bio

Dr Sarah Oxenbridge has researched work and workplaces since 1993. She completed a PhD in 1998 which examined the strategies adopted by New Zealand trade unions in response to the Employment Contracts Act 1991. Between 1999 and 2003 she worked at the University of Cambridge on two ESRC-funded projects examining employer and trade union relationships and strategies. From 2003 to 2005 she worked for the UK Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (Acas) as a senior researcher, where she managed and commissioned research evaluating Acas’ services, and worked as part of the team of researchers responsible for designing and analysing the 2004 Workplace Employment Relations Survey (WERS2004). From 2006 to 2011 Sarah worked at the University of Sydney, conducting surveys and qualitative research projects. She has been the co-director of a research consultancy, Employment Research Australia (2012-2016) where she conducted projects for clients on gender equity, the management and prevention of psychosocial risk factors, and a range of other topics.
