We’re running a short series of interviews about our team members to help you get to know us better. Here is more about Claire Brown
1. What do you do?
I’m the Assistant Coordinator at Holybrook and provide organisational support to the team. I am currently working on composing a Staff Handbook and helping to advise on HR policies and procedures. I also work with some of our clients offering financial and administrative assistance and am currently undertaking a Diploma in Personal Performance Coaching to be in a position to also offer coaching to clients next year.
2. Why are you a Holybrook Associate?
Having worked within a range of HR & Operational roles for the past 12 years across the Charity, Health & Education sectors I am really keen to extend my skills to the Commercial Sector. Working with a team with such diverse skill sets creates a great environment for learning and development, which is something I’m really passionate about.
3. What do you like most about working/living in and around Reading?
Reading combines great vibrancy and access to London and other major cities whilst also offering some really stunning peaceful green spaces just a short journey away.
4. Who or what would be your ideal client or project?
My ideal client would be someone at the beginning of their journey; a business start-up or new charity brimming with energy and creativity looking to do something that will make a difference to others. I really value the opportunity to help grow and support clients through a range of strategic initiatives, helping to develop individuals and organisations.
5. What are your favourite things to do outside working with Holybrook?
Alongside my work at Holybrook, I coach individuals privately and really enjoy working with clients to enable them to move forward from where they are now to where they want to be. I also enjoy swimming, Pilates, singing and being creative.
