Sarah McGuire

Group Head of Recruitment, MAG

“After graduating with a law degree from Sheffield University, l (eventually) changed paths and pursued a career in HR. I have particular interest in Talent and Resourcing, Diversity and Inclusion and HR Digitalisation. My background is mainly legal and professional services, with the last 5 years being spent at MAG where I have enjoyed a number of roles. As Group Head of Recruitment I have grown the in house team to support over 700 hires per annum under a direct sourcing strategy; launched new technology, such as video interviewing, across the group; standardised processes and developed MI to improve the user journey, and commissioned a review of our talent acquisition practices through a diversity and inclusion lens. It has been a challenging and busy time with a lot more on the list to achieve over the next 3 years including technology transformation, employer brand and social recruitment strategy. Out of work my daughter Isla takes up most of my spare time whether that be at swimming classes, ballet classes or at the park… when I get the chance I enjoy cooking, reading, cinema and seem to constantly be decorating or renovating houses!”
