After graduating with an honours degree in Business Studies and Accounting from Edinburgh University in 2000, Claire went on to train as a Chartered Accountant with KPMG in Aberdeen.

In 2008 Claire moved into industry as the Group Accountant for Triton Group, a private equity backed subsea services group. As the company was relatively new, and acquisitive, she was responsible for creating the group reporting templates, producing consolidated management accounts, accounting for new acquisitions, preparing management information and overseeing the subsidiary finance teams and the group audit. A year later she was promoted to be the UK and Group Regional Controller. In this role she oversaw the UK finance team reporting directly to the CFO.
