Meet The Team! Claire James

Cat-loving Claire is a former wannabe dancer and interior designer – having spent several years in industry, means that Claire understands the challenges clients face and how to support them.

How long have you worked with Ducketts?
Eight months, it's flown by.

What’s your job title?
Management Accountant.

What’s the best thing about being part of the Ducketts Team?
Everyone is helpful and supportive.

Describe your job in 3 words.
Rewarding, Challenging, Evolving.

What was your previous role and how does it help you in your day-to-day job now?
I worked for 19 years at the same company in various finance roles, beginning as Finance Assistant and ending as Finance Operations Manager. I believe its given me a great understanding of some of the challenges clients may face and how to support them.

Why did you join Ducketts?
I did a little research before joining them and liked what I heard and saw, it’s a well-respected company and team.

What’s your favourite film?
Depends on what mood I’m in, either The Holiday or Die Hard. It's been pointed out to me that these may or may not be Christmas films – I’ll leave that up to others to debate.

Who would you most like to swap places with for the day?
Whilst there are plenty of key historical figures I should probably be choosing from, I think being honest, I’d choose to be one of my cats.

When you were young, what did you want to be when you were older?
A dancer or an interior designer, I always liked maths but didn’t know what I could use it for.
