Clare has a rare talent for finding the peculiar mix of attitude, obsession and talent that we cherish here at Marcussen. She began her career conventionally enough, working as a City recruiter for investment banks and corporates, with the chic Islington flat to match. Eventually she wanted new challenges and swapped the flat for a country cottage, and embarked on a more varied (and, frankly, interesting) phase of her career that ultimately brought her to our door. We particularly value her for her refusal to put forward someone she knows isn’t quite right for a role, even when it would be much easier to do so.
Outside work Clare has her hands full managing two kids, a dog, a cat and a husband.
