Claire in a few words

I am currently delivering services as Senior Recruiter for Amazon AET (Amazon Experiences and Technology), hired specifically to coordinate their expansion into new European and African markets. Due to the economic downturn and changes to the company’s expansion strategy, my position there is not guaranteed. I thoroughly enjoy working for Amazon but am now considering other opportunities as we move towards 2023.
I have 16 years’ experience in international recruitment, global mobility, talent management and emerging markets. I am proficient in developing fundamental HR policies that are cost-effective, feasible, and compliant with established policies in order to achieve organisational goals, amplify employee development, and improve performance. My primary areas of expertise include strategic HR planning, talent management, employee engagement, and training & development.
My talent acquisition strengths are fully complemented by my business acumen and competencies that surround project management, financial planning, sales & marketing, budget management, and business development. Over 16 years’ experience working in international environments such as Ireland, the United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and EMEA countries have equipped me with the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to recruit and retain talented employees in order to support organisations in meeting their defined objectives. I am fully accustomed to developing my tactics in accordance with corporate requirements, commercial demands, and workforce needs. If given the opportunity, I will work tirelessly to deliver lucrative outcomes for your organisation.
