Claire is our Business Support here at IFS – having spent 16 years growing up in South Africa she has experienced a very different childhood than most, living life in the sunshine Al Fresco style enjoying a life of regular BBQ’s and swimming in her outdoor pool. Relocating back to UK in 1998 in Kent where she was born, she moved to Poole after what was meant to be a 2 week stay with friends turned into a carefree 22 year old Claire deciding to never go back as she fell in love with the sunny south coast.
Professional life for Claire started out gaining her insurance qualifications at a small brokerage in South Africa, locally she worked at Frizzell Bank then on to Hill House Hammond where she actually met our director Marcus. After a career break to have her daughter and son whom she completely adores she completed an NVQ2 in Beauty Therapy and worked part time in Customer Services for 11 years and then went on to have her third child, a little boy who is equally adored and brings so much joy to her family.
Now back in the financial industry again Claire is bringing her many skills and knowledge from all her life’s experiences and putting in some great streamlined processes within IFS. Claire says what she’s enjoying most here at IFS is “working alongside a lovely down to earth and professional team and interacting with lovely friendly clients.”
One of Claire’s favourite pastimes is socialising with friends and family over a glass of wine. Claire enjoys music “especially a bit of Rod Stewart and Elton John” and in between times she loves long walks on the beach and going to the gym.
