About Nesta

Nesta is an innovation foundation. For us, innovation means turning bold ideas into reality and changing lives for the better. We use our expertise, skills and funding in areas where there are big challenges facing society.

Claire works in the strategy unit, supporting Nesta to develop, deliver and iterate its 10-year strategy.

Prior to Nesta, Claire worked as a strategy manager in Deloitte's climate & sustainability team, where she helped organisations develop strategies and propositions to tackle some of the biggest social and environmental challenges facing our world today. Her work ranged from supporting a telco to develop a new product proposition for sustainable agriculture, helping a business measure the impact of their digital inclusion programmes and developing and running a series of pilots to help a pharma company reduce their Scope 3 carbon emissions. Before that, Claire was a consultant in Monitor Deloitte, Deloitte's strategy arm.

Claire holds a BSc in Natural Sciences with a focus on geography and biology from Durham University.

Outside of work, Claire loves trying out new vegan/veggie restaurants and exploring North London's parks and wild swimming locations.
