Did we mention how proud we are of the Metis Ireland team?
We’ve assembled such a wonderful bunch of bright, passionate, talented people that we can’t help wanting to show them off from time to time.
Up in the chair this time is Sinéad Clinton, our Head of Operations. She keeps the wheels turning and well-oiled within the business – but we’ll let her do the talking from here on.

Hi Sinéad! Describe in three words the kind of work you do every day?

Rules, rules and rules! Basically, I follow rules, I implement rules and I make sure everyone understands the rules.


What’s been your proudest moment at Metis Ireland?

I had a whole different answer to this, but it changed on Sunday 17th May when I submitted my final assignment for my BA in Management Practice… that was a very very proud moment for me, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the encouragement and support of everyone in Metis Ireland or without the financing!


Tell us the quote or phrase that goes through life with you.

In my family whenever any of us are fed up with anything in life my mother would always tell us to ‘throw your cards into the air and see where they land’. Basically, never feel trapped, there are always other options and life is what you make of it.


What’s in your Metis LifePlan?

My short term plan (and hopefully Covid-19 hasn’t scuppered this) is to buy a home. My ongoing plan is to travel as much as possible to as many different places. My long term retirement plan is to adopt all the dogs and be a crazy dog lady!


Where is the most interesting place you’ve been?

In 2011 I visited my Aunt Helen in Zambia where she had lived since before I was born. It was such an amazing experience, we saw and did so much, but the highlight was spending time in the school she had set up for children with special needs (see the image above!) and getting to see first-hand all the work Helen had done in her life. It is a trip I will always treasure.


Who is your hero and why?

I am going to borrow from my colleague Niamh who I think gave a really good answer last month. I don’t have a specific hero, but I really look up to so many people who battle against adversity and come out the other side.


If you could give your younger self one piece of advice what would it be?

Stop being stubborn and ask for help!
