5 minutes with… Sarah Maguire newly appointed Advertising Accounts Manager at Armagh I

Introducing the very accomplished, Sarah Maguire as our new Advertising Accounts Manager here at Armagh I and Armagh Jobs.

The industrious Sarah has enjoyed employment across a variety of sectors and has acquired an array of skills in that time. She has now added these tools to her advertising arsenal and is ready to hit the ground running with our existing clients and prospective.

An Armachian born and bred, Sarah loves this city. In her spare time she enjoys a leisurely hack across the country with her trusty steed, Rusty or walking her two darling dogs, Sooty and Leo.

Why did you choose advertising as a career/business?

I love working with people and, being from Armagh myself, working with local businesses and watching them succeed just seemed like something that would offer great job satisfaction.

The fact that I could roll out of bed at 8:30am and still be in work for 9:00am obviously had no bearing on the decision!

What are you most proud of in your career to date?

To date I am most proud that I was able to gain enough confidence to work as a model on European and billboard campaigns for well known companies.

What is the most helpful advice that you have been given?

Go after whatever you want and keep working until you get it!

If you could choose anything else to do, what would it be?

My dream job is to be a singer but perhaps – in a more realistic world – I would own a petting farm filled with baby animals!

What do you think your best quality is?

I think my best quality is my ability to talk the leg off a donkey.

Name three things that you like doing outside of work..

Outside of work I love going to shows with my horse, Rusty. Bringing my dogs to Gosford and going to yoga classes.

Tell us about a secret skill that we don’t know you have.

I could have a 2 hour nap at 7pm, wake up, go to bed and sleep until the next morning

What is your most prized possession?

A locket with pictures of my family all squeezed into two small frames I can wear around my neck everyday.

What is your favourite food?

STEAK!! Fillet steak medium/rare please.

What is your favourite book?

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen.

What are you currently watching?

Gilmore Girls… AGAIN!

If you were to watch a band/singer live, who would it be?

Freddie Mercury and Queen!

Dead or alive, who would you most want to meet and why?

I would love to meet David Attenborough. Imagine the adventures he could tell you about!
