Assistant Head of Finance (Projects)
Claire graduated from Newcastle University with a BSc (Hons) in Physiological Sciences and achieved her Accountancy qualification and Fellowship whilst working. She has previously worked in NHS finance (including at North Tyneside PCG/T and NHS North of Tyne) and has been pleasantly surprised by how many familiar faces she has seen since her return. Claire has recently held a number of finance roles with the Department for Work and Pensions and has been working with HM Treasury on designing new funding methodologies. She is looking forward to the challenge of working on the Vanguard finances.
Claire works part-time and spends her free time volunteering with charities supporting people who are elderly, sick or disabled.
