I have worked in Armatile for 12 years now. I first joined at the age of 16 on work experience and haven't left since.

Describe a typical day in your job in Armatile
I spend most of my working day based in the Armagh showroom meeting new build buyers. I assist them with their tile selections and liaise with them until their project is complete to ensure they get the best possible end result for their home. As a result, I work closely with builders and developers too on a day to day basis in order to meet completion dates and deadlines. I've been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to work on a number of projects with designers as a result of this. I also get to spend time out on the road keeping up relationships with current customers and trying to generate new business, so there's never a dull moment!
