Sonia Squires

Sonia Squires is Head of Internal Communications at Citizen Housing. Sonia started her career working in higher education institutions, the University of Manchester and the University of Huddersfield where she worked with under-represented groups, supporting and encouraging young people to achieve their ambition. She then found her calling with internal communications, working for the NHS, AQA and most recently in social housing. Sonia’s passion is in supporting leaders with their communication so that they develop a greater connection with their teams. This stems from her MBA dissertation which focused on the importance of leadership in employee engagement and the significant impact it has every day.

A mum of two young girls (3 and 5), Sonia spends her weekends exploring new places/ parks and singing lots of Disney and Bollywood songs on repeat. Vegan for nearly 10 years, Sonia loves visiting vegan markets and trying out new cakes and chocolates.

A big Derby County fan, Sonia has a season ticket for the Rams cheering them on through good times, and bad! In any other spare moments Sonia gets, she enjoys doing yoga or watching a gripping series on Netflix.
