Claire Harrison Headshot
Claire joined the company in 1998 and recently celebrated her 25th year of service. She began as a Warehouse Operative, gaining experience in various roles and departments such as tobacco, ambient, and temperature control. With proficiency in diverse warehouse tasks and operating multiple pieces of MHE, including high-level reach trucks, Claire’s dedication led her to secure a position as a stand-in section manager. Progressing through the ranks, she became the Shift Manager, proudly becoming the first female in that role at Haydock, which she has held for the past 15 years. Claire finds joy in leading and developing her team to achieve daily, weekly, monthly, and annual objectives, prioritizing safety and timely stock delivery to branches. With prior managerial roles and a BTEC in Sales and Retail, Claire initially joined Booker to balance work with caring responsibilities for her son, but her passion for the job and career growth opportunities kept her engaged. Throughout her tenure, Booker supported Claire in obtaining CMI and CIPD certificates, along with extensive coaching and training, enhancing her managerial skills to tackle modern challenges positively. Claire takes pride in balancing her role at Booker with her responsibilities as a mother and wife.
