Claire Rusby

HR Director,
UK Greetings Ltd

Yorkshire and Humber Leadership Board

Claire Rusby is HR Director at UK Greetings Ltd (UKG), one of the largest publishers of greeting cards and social expressions products in the UK and one of the Kirklees Top 100 companies. 

In her role as HR Director, Claire is responsible for people and culture including responsible business through UKG’s sustainability strategy which is aligned to the United Nations’ Global Goals. As one of the biggest employers in Dewsbury, striving to be a responsible business and supporting the local community is very important. This is one of the reasons UKG became a member of Business in the Community in August 2020. 

Claire has over 20 years’ HR experience and is a chartered member of the CIPD. She recently gained an MBA qualification through Cranfield University, a challenging but very rewarding experience which has given her a much broader business perspective. It also ignited a passion to become more involved in the wider business arena, one of the reasons Claire has chosen to join the Yorkshire and Humber Leadership Board along with championing responsible business in the region. 

Claire is Yorkshire born and bred and loves walking her dog, a welsh terrier, in the local countryside but equally loves travelling and exploring new and different places.
