Headshot Sean McGrath

Thank you Seán for your time. Can you tell us a bit more about yourself?

I grew up in retail, firstly helping in my Grandmothers hardware shop as a child and later in my Mum’s deli. Most of my background since then has been in sales and customer service and all the skills I learned in this area have been invaluable to me since I started working for Neylons in September 2020.

  1. Who inspired you to pursue the career you have today?

Loads of people, my parents, my family, and friends.

  1. How would you describe your job to a bunch of kids?

I help Neylons keep current clients, and also get new ones.

  1. What is your proudest moment at Neylons?

Graduating from the Academy.

  1. What do you find the most challenging in your role?

Time management can be an issue, especially considering how busy we all are.

  1. What have you gained from working at Neylons?

Loads. I’m lucky that all the people I engage with share their time and their knowledge without complaint.

  1. What’s the best advice you can give to someone who just started their career?

Work hard and if you ever feel you are being taken for granted, leave.

  1. What’s something most people don’t know about you?

Nothing interesting! I can play the trumpet!

  1. What would be three words to best describe you?

  1. Motto or personal mantra?

What’s for you won’t pass you.

  1. Do you cook? What’s your favourite recipe?

Yes, I do! I have a recipe for monkfish wrapped in bacon that I love.

  1. You’d like to be famous for?

I don’t think I’ll make it as a professional rugby player at my age, so now I’d like to be a professional golfer!
