Lorraine Osborne: Achieving success against the odds.

Achieving success against the odds

Lorraine Osborne
Finance Manager

Lorraine joined our team in January 2016 and was initially employed to manage credit control. We were quickly impressed with her exceptional organisational skills and experience in finance and banking, and the following year Lorraine was promoted to Finance Manager.

Lorraine’s role is crucial to the success of our business. Working closely with our directorate, she manages our budgets, cash flow, expenditure, credit control, and collates financial reports that enable our executive team to plan for future growth. 

The journey to Lorraine’s career began in Aug 1994 when she successfully completed an access to Business Studies at college while pregnant with her second child. Not wanting to stop there, Lorraine moved to the south coast from London to start an Accountancy and Finance degree at Brighton University.

As a single mum, Lorraine raised her two boys alone, and after many years of working hard and running small businesses that included event management, prop building and PA services, Lorraine was proud to buy her own house.

In more recent years, Lorraine joined Lloyds Banking Group where she spent over ten years as a Corporate Recoveries Executive, where she dealt with asset finance, credit risk and collections and recoveries.

Lorraine says the skills and knowledge she has attained through her life experiences have helped her to make a success of this role and her role at Clarity Environmental. “I understand hardship and I am experienced at finding working ways to help people and businesses make payments of outstanding debts. Running businesses and working in professional and demanding jobs while raising my two children alone means I also had to develop second to none organisational skills. These skills continue to support my role today, and are helping me to ensure that Clarity’s financial management systems are run efficiently and productively.”
