Claire Farrow

Inclusion & Diversity Client Partner

Claire is Outsource’s Inclusion & Diversity Client Partner, working with our Clients to create an inclusive culture where all employees feel valued and highlighting areas for improvement in attraction and hiring processes in order to widen the candidate pool. To achieve truly inclusive recruitment practices, it is necessary to support everyone in their career search, recognising when to adapt the hiring process to ensure everyone has a fair chance.

When we look closely at Inclusion, it is becoming more and more apparent that a lack of agreement exists over who should be responsible for developing the internal culture and Claire truly believes that every individual has a duty of care to ensure all their colleagues feel included. In fact, she believes that Inclusion should be synonymous with Communication. After all, do we really know how our colleagues feel if we don’t talk to them?

Claire started her career with Outsource in 2009 as a recruiter for a number of Outsource's key accounts. From there, she moved over to account manage, and then later, programme manage Outsource's two largest financial services clients, supporting with contingent, executive and permanent hiring strategies. After 8 years, in 2017, Claire set up the Diversity Matters team to highlight the worrying lack of inclusion and diversity in the technology and engineering sectors.

Claire is an enthusiastic linguist in Spanish and French, loves to travel and when possible, fits in the occasional half marathon!
