Claire Renfree

Position: Accounts Manager

My day to day role at Oscars:

I am responsible for all aspects of the accounts function for the business including paying landlords and suppliers. I also specialise in the use of Sage accounting software and VAT in addition to supporting and advising other members of the team based on my experience working in all roles.

What I like best about my job:

I enjoy everything! I find the job itself very rewarding. It’s not a job when you love what you do! I love to see happy clients, happy staff which makes every day enjoyable.

My first house:

My current house which is a cosy terraced home in West Hull.

My dream home:

Now you have me stumped! In the winter, I would love a farmhouse in the Yorkshire Dales with amazing views of the beautiful countryside. In the summer months, a charming traditional Greek home with beautiful surroundings and lots of bougainvillea bushes in my peaceful courtyard garden. Perfection!

In my spare time/hobbies:

Most of my spare time is spent with my family. My beautiful daughter (aged 8) entertains me on a daily basis and of course my husband and dog ‘Bramble’. I enjoy the local gym taking part in body combat and body pump classes each week, and have just started the local park run.

My favourite local restaurant:

Gusto’s in Newland Avenue.

If you live in East Yorkshire you must:

Walk on the Wolds Way – it’s stunning! If you are in the city centre, then my advice is to always look up as the architecture is incredible and often goes unnoticed. The tour of Hull is also excellent to learn things you didn’t know about our great city.

Best piece of advice:

Let your smile change the world but don’t let the world change your smile.
