Claire – 4 years at Clicky!
Claire is celebrating 4 years at Clicky this month. To celebrate we wanted to share a little more about Claire, and her time with us.
What was your background before you joined Clicky?
My career has spanned roles worldwide, which have been some real highlights in my career. I have been fortunate to have had several HR and recruitment roles in the UK and Sydney along with an HR Business Partner role within a private family business.
Personally, prior to joining Clicky I enjoyed a short period of time not working – renovating our home and managing two children.
Could you tell us about your role at Clicky?
I am Head of People and Culture at Clicky. I love my job, it is so varied and diverse, every day is so different.
Some days I will have a real focus on the recruitment, onboarding, and health and wellbeing of our staff, other days will involve collaborating on career progression and physical working facilities whilst ensuring that we’re constantly creating the best environment for our team to be successful.
Talk us through a typical working day for you
Every day is so different! This year has been even more varied (and challenging) with the addition of homeschooling my 2 boys so I’ve had to adapt my day as needed.
I am an early riser and will generally start my day with a cup of tea while checking my email. I have numerous google meet calls throughout the day with team members, job chats with potential candidates and several times a week hold a virtual tea break for anyone wanting to catch up. I will try to block time in my diary for more concentrated work – where I might be working on policies or processes.
Finally, what would be your main piece of advice to those looking for a job at Clicky or looking to start a career in our industry?
- Think about why you want to work for a specific employer and make contact – even if you don’t see an exact job role being advertised, get in touch, and interact with the business.
- Put a CV together that tells your career story – be able to talk through your experience and what you can bring.
- Follow social media accounts and build up your connections on LinkedIn within the industry.
- If you don’t have specific experience or a background in digital, show initiative by focusing on your personal training and development which may span the wider digital landscape.
