Claire Allsopp

Receptionist/Office Administrator

Job Role

I joined EMG in January 2022 working on reception 2 days per week meeting and greeting clients when they come through the door or when they call us.  There are many tasks we do on reception from making coffee (which is very hard to get right) to opening the post and scanning on our system as quick and efficiently as possible to allow Fee Earners to get on with their work.


When I left school (many years ago) I worked as an audio/typist in a Solicitors office in Newcastle before joining Sage UK Ltd for 32 years in Sales/Retention team working to strict deadlines and targets before semi-retiring and then joining EMG.

What do you like about working at EMG?

Although EMG is growing and getting bigger, I don’t feel like just a number…everyone is friendly and approachable that made it easy for me to fit in and feel part of the team.

Outside EMG

In my spare time I love spending with my family, my hubby (better half) Michael, my gorgeous son Andrew aged **? (well that would give my age away) who lives with the lovely Kaleigh his wife and I have a wonderful grandson Alex who will be 18 next year…also I take care of my 81 year old mother Jean who is still doing well for her age, she has a better social life than me!  In my other spare time I still enjoy playing netball that I have played since school (I know a long time) 😊 also I love having holidays and weekends away.  Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year as I just love everyone getting together having fun.
