Claire Maclachlan


19 years in recruitment, 17 of which specialising in Accounting and Finance across Coventry and Warwickshire. Extensive experience in both permanent and temporary recruitment across all levels over the years.  I launched Wallis Lynch in 2013 with my father, we were joined shortly after by my previous colleagues of many years Mairi-Claire Lenton and David Whittle.  Since then we have moved into bigger offices, seen many successes alongside some grounding learning experiences!! The rest.. is still happening. I am loving the journey and very grateful to our loyal clients and candidates that have been part of it so far.

Loves: Chocolate, my small boy, all day breakfasts, anything outdoors, exercise induced endorphins.

Weakness: Chocolate, a fine whisky! Having far too many animals, mainly horses, dogs and cats, currently includes a disabled bunny rabbit and has been known to have two lambs in nappies living in the house.

Worst day in recruitment: Falling off my heels onto a candidates lap at interview. Severe pins and needles preventing swift recovery so get hoisted back into my chair by man I have just met.

Best feature: Severely moral.

Worst feature: Hideously untidy.
