Claire joined Sintons in December 2017 as our Head of People Services, having worked in the HR field for over 25 years at John Lewis and more recently in a Newcastle based law firm for nearly 5 years.

A Chartered Fellow member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, Claire is passionate about her role and enjoys the variety of being in a strategic, as well as operational, HR role, where she can make a positive difference and support the business to achieve commercial success through its people.

Claire is an accredited PRINT coach.

She is also a member of our Corporate Social Responsibility Committee and is actively involved in supporting initiatives that help develop the employability skills of young people in our region.  Currently a board member of JET, a registered charity in the West End of Newcastle, Claire has previously volunteered as a school governor and member of the local CIPD Committee.

Claire also played a lead role in developing the North East Solicitor Apprenticeship programme; a programme we are very proud to be a part of.

Married, with one son, when Claire’s not spending her weekend providing a taxi service for him to football events, she enjoys spending time with friends and family and admits that she’s a bit of a shopaholic.
