Country girl turned Head of Human Resources extraordinaire, Claire Silver always dreamt of seeing the world: growing up on a farm, she fantasised about living in the iconic cities she’d seen in movies. As soon as her gap year rolled around, Claire headed to London, then New York City…and suddenly, she couldn’t stop travelling the world. Luckily, this made for a career well spent in travel and recruitment leadership roles, the perfect primer for her role here.

Claire describes her “life changing” East Africa tour (with her husband Dan) as one of her most special travel moments; mesmerised by the land, people and animals of Africa. “We especially loved our safari in NgoroNgoro crater and our intense, muddy, challenging and magnificent Gorilla trek in Uganda.”

From ticking gorillas off her bucket list to raising two cheeky monkeys of her own in recent years, Claire also finds a lot of satisfaction in her work at Inspiring Vacations, where she has nurtured the company's recruitment, work culture and purpose from a modest travel start-up to the success story it is today. “We hold very high expectations of ourselves to ensure we deliver truly inspiring customer experiences, and that begins with recruiting and retaining the very best talent to do that.”
