Claire Bannister

Executive Assistant 

I joined the CSJ in June 2018 as the Executive Assistant to the CEO. My role is to organise, manage and keep him on track, not an easy task but I like a challenge! I graduated from New College, Durham with an HND in Business and Finance, and I then went on to complete a post graduate qualification in Executive PA Studies. I have over 20 years’ experience as a PA and Office Manager and have worked for a number of board-level executives. I am a keen runner and have completed numerous half and full marathons over the years, but am now opting for a more sedate sport with plans to take up golf.

I auditioned to be a cheerleader at 14 having never done a single cheerleading lesson.
