We are pleased to welcome Clare, our new Head Office Administrator. This is a new role that enabled us to enhance the level of support that we provide to our Branch Managers. It already feels as though Clare has been with us for ever. Clare is already proving to be an invaluable support to the management team and helping with projects, compliance, data, systems management to name but a few.

Before Clare joined Friends, she was an administrator for the Quality and Progression department for a law firm and undertook a number of projects and brings a host of skills and experience that we needed as our business grows and adapts. Clare describes herself as, “a strong administrator with a wide range of knowledge and understanding of the business support environment covering various industries; with  a keen eye for attention to detail and a passion for making life easy for those around me.  I am joining Friends at such an exciting time and I’m looking forward to providing my support and knowledge to the management team and development of business. I love that care at heart is what this company delivers.”

Its not all work. Clare has a busy family life. “I can often be found at the weekend getting blown away on a blustery beach with my family and dog.  At home, I love nothing more than spending time in my kitchen, cooking, baking or just thinking about food with the radio on!  I’m also a dab hand at crafting and looking forward to doing more craft things with my little girl as she gets older.

Relocating our family to Plymouth has come with quite a few ‘wobble’ moments for me, buying and selling and the stress that’s involved,  but I have been made to feel so welcome in such a short time by everyone in the Friends team. I can hardly wait to see what the future holds for my family in Plymouth and for my second family at Friends.”
