Following over twenty years of working as an HR practitioner in the NHS Wales and latterly in Scotland where she worked as Deputy Director of Workforce at NHS Grampian, Clare enjoys working in the housing sector in north east Scotland. Having joined Osprey in 2017, one of the major challenges is still getting to grips with the wide remit her role covers – customer services, governance, health and safety, IT, risk management, data information and communication as well as HR, are all areas of her responsibility. All goes to make sure each day is different and certainly a learning experience!
