Hi, I’m Sarah McDonald and I’m a Manager here at Claritas. I joined the team 7 years ago in 2015.
My role mainly consists of looking after the finance side of things here at Claritas. I also look after graduate recruitment and employment related securities compliance.
My first role was with a small accountancy practice, where I gained lots of experience in preparing basic accounts and general secretarial and office duties. Since then, I joined Claritas firstly as an Office Manager, progressing into the Manager role I have today. I have had lots of support from colleagues and family along the way, which is so important and appreciated.
Claritas have been incredibly supportive with the progression of my role, from helping me to gain professional qualifications to fantastic mentoring along the way. This has helped me to grow in confidence and gain the necessary skills to support the team as we grow from strength to strength.
The biggest barrier I have faced, was not knowing what career I wanted to do when I left school. I have always enjoyed numbers, so figured this was a good place to start! I think it is so important to enjoy your work, as you will learn so much more along the way.
The highlight of my career was gaining my role at Claritas. Working previously in the same job at a small accountancy practice for over 16 years, I was very comfortable within that environment, however, I had decided the time had come to look for a new challenge and it was the best decision I’ve ever made.
Don’t be afraid to push yourself out of your comfort zone, apply for your dream job – you may surprise yourself with what you can achieve!
