Claire started her working life in retail before studying AAT and joining Whittaker & Co in June 2011 looking after our maritime clients. Only 3 months later Claire found herself based in Muscat as a point of contact for our maritime clients rather than just being at the end of an email or phone call. Stints in Fujairah and Sri Lanka followed before returning to the UK permanently in May 2014 after the death of her father to Pancreatic Cancer.
According to everyone who meets Claire she is very methodical and passionate about her work to the extent of being known for her ‘OCD’ work ethic!
Claire loves football and supports Manchester United and the England Lionesses. Anything football related and she is your Gal! Add a bit of travel into the equation (especially Australia) and happy days.
Claire also lost her mum to Pancreatic Cancer in October 2017 and is now and avid supporter of fundraising for Pancreatic Cancer UK in which she has completed the Cardiff Half Marathon twice and her home town of Oswestry’s Half Marathon and is currently preparing for her biggest challenge to date trekking Machu Picchu in South America in March 2019 raising funds again for Pancreatic cancer.
A random bit of trivia Claire can’t stand Lavender!
