Claire Padgett

Team: Secretarial & Admin Roles

I specialise in: Logistics, Sales Support, Finance, HR, Internal Recruitment

Languages: English & German

I’ve been at Euro London since: 1997

About me: I studied European Business and Technology at University, which involved living in Germany for a year, studying and working;  so finding a role connected to languages and business was always going to be my goal. My career at Euro London has spanned from setting up the Call Centre Resourcing and Euro London “North” teams, to Internal Recruiter and Branch Manager for Windsor and Senior Manager. After taking time out to have my second child, I now work as a Consultant, recruiting for Clients across the UK and Europe.

If I was a famous person, I would be:The Queen – just for a day.

Fun fact: I once lost a game of “fight your way out of the giant paper bag”, on stage in front of 1000 people, which made my daughter burst in to tears with shame.
