Clare joined Causeway in 2020, having worked before in various roles of administration. Clare deals with all our phone lines and email inboxes, supporting our tenants and external partners with any queries they may have. She loves nothing more than making an excel sheet or writing a to-do list, to keep things running smoothly for the rest of the team. She likes to do volunteer work, and in the past has spent time in Uganda working with communities there, and more recently helps with collections and projects for various London charities.

Before moving to London, Clare studied English & Anthropology in Ireland. In her spare time, she loves to read and pet dogs.

She also works closely with our partner organisations and landlords to ensure we are offering the best service and support for the people who live in our homes.
