Amy Swallow – Account Manager

What was your first job?
My first job was as a nanny, I was 18 and had to look after a 4-month-old and 5-year-old. Being a big kid myself, I let them run riot in their huge house, it was great!

What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I wanted to be a vet. I would make my own vet practice in my bedroom, dress my cat in bandages and walk around with in mini scrubs which my mum made me. I love animals and I am obsessed with David Attenborough and any nature documentary. I also aspire to own a sausage dog called Baguette.

Soundtrack of your life?
Well it has to be Earth Wind and Fire – September! I’m a HUGE 70’s and 80’s fan, that is all I listen to, my Spotify is filled with pure golden oldies. September gets me in the best mood ever!

Biggest pet peeve
Laziness! I’m not a lazy person and I don’t adjust well to lazy people around me. I like to think I have a ‘get up and go’ attitude which I consider a good thing!

What is one thing you’re learning and why is it important?
One thing I’m learning is to slow down and have ‘me time’, whether that be in the gym or with a facemask on the sofa. I often find myself exhausted by Friday as I commit to too many plans in the week, so I’m learning to say no and just chill out instead.

Favourite phrase; English and another language
‘Think smarter not harder’ – I have to thank fellow Bubble, Louise for that one!

What is your guilty pleasure?
Simply Red. I know it’s weird, but I have a huge soft spot for Mick Hucknall. Maybe it is because we’re both gingers, so we have a connection, but his silky-smooth voice sings to me!

What is your most used emoji?
I always use my personalised bitmoji, who wears a crown, obviously.

Do you have a hidden talent?
Karaoke. I like to think I’m a great singer and I often find someone to do a duet with, my go to songs include Fernando by Abba, Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen and Barcelona by Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballé.

Do you have an industry idol, if so who? And why?
My industry idol is Anne Louise at Avid. Having graduated from the Rise Mentoring Programme, she was my mentor and I loved getting to know her as well as receiving some great advice, structure and guidance during the scheme. Thank you, lovely Anne-Louise!

What is your favourite thing about being a Bubble?
My favourite thing about being a Bubble is the respect that we have within the industry. Of course, everyone recognises our infamous striped shirts, people know immediately who you work for and I feel so proud to wear my stripes!
