We thought it would be good to introduce some of the faces here at Swan. Last month it was Sarah Fryer, this time it’s Claire Eastwood, our Office Manager.
The Swan Energy team was delighted to welcome Claire into the fold back in September 2014. She came from a background in customer service and admin support roles; most recently Claire had worked as Court Clerk and was the person that shouted “All Rise”. How interesting is that!
In Claire’s role as Office Manager she is everyone’s ‘go-to’ person and a central cog in the wheel. Day-to-day she takes care of organising diaries, site visits, meetings and hotel bookings – and when you ring into the office Claire is likely to be the person that answers. She also takes care of invoices, meeting minutes and supports the team of analysts and consultants where they need a helping hand. Not forgetting of course that Claire holds the crown for best Tea Maker at Swan!
Apart from good organisation skills, Claire injects plenty of humour and banter into the office. She would also say that she’s very good at nagging the rest of the team.
Claire’s favourite pastime away from work is spending time with her five grandchildren and she also loves holidaying. Over the past 12 months she’s been to cruising to Guernsey, Malta, Greece and Sicily – as well as Lanzarote, Budapest and Spain. She’s also got Scotland, Bruges and Menorca marked up on the work’s holiday calendar!
