Claire Murray joins Inverurie team

Tarves born Claire Murray has joined James Milne’s Inverurie team as Business Services Assistant. Joining Gail Soutar and her team, Claire will be providing payroll and bookkeeping services to clients, as well as assisting with year end accounts.

Claire has recently completed a two-year HND in Accounting and Finance and has a host of experience in working in finance in a variety of industries including oil and gas. Claire has also held financial roles in smaller businesses and including her father’s agricultural engineering business.

Having been recruited and started her new position during the pandemic, Claire is yet to meet many of her James Milne colleagues in person, so is looking forward to getting into the Inverurie office once guidelines allow.

Claire said: “It has been strange starting a new job during the pandemic, but luckily the whole team has been really welcoming. Even though we have mostly only met up through video conferencing and telephone calls, I have really settled in well.

“My current office colleagues are my two chihuahuas who can be a little noisy, so I eagerly anticipate the day when we can get back to the office.”

Partner Michael Fotheringham commented: “Claire is a valuable addition to the Business Services Department and brings with her a wealth of experience across different industries.

“It has been a busy time for James Milne as we support businesses facing challenging times. Our staff members have all been working at home, and we understand that that can be difficult for many, and so we truly value their dedication, professionalism and efficiency.

“We all look forward to welcoming Claire to the Inverurie office again in person, when we can all safely get back together.”
