Spotlight On: Claire Hornett, Finance Administrator

Updated: May 31, 2023

Continuing with our 'Spotlight On' stories about a member of our team, this month it's the turn of Claire Hornett.

What's your role at Venture 1?

I'm the Finance Administrator.

What sort of things do you do day-to-day at Venture 1?

I look after the invoicing, answer finance queries, and pay the bills. It’s a lot more complex than it sounds! I’m freelance so I work from home – luckily I knew some very clever techie people who were able to sort my PC out so that everything runs smoothly (thank you helpdesk 😊).

What do you like about working at Venture 1?

I’m fairly new here so I’ve probably been asking lots of silly questions - but everybody has been incredibly helpful, so I’ve almost found my feet already! I also love the flexibility to work the hours that fit around my lifestyle.

What do you do outside of work?

Football, football, and more football! I usually play four times a week for ladies, mixed, and now men's teams (which is allowed at over 50’s level, yay for getting old!). Friendlies, league, and national – with a couple of international trips coming up. Other than that, I love snorkelling – Red Sea if possible, and have been known to do the occasional pub quiz.


  • Favourite Film: Life of Brian (the Latin graffiti is genius!).

  • Favourite Dinner: Raspberry pavlova

  • Favourite Drink: Very milky Mellow Birds coffee (much to the amusement of certain other Venture 1 staff members!)

  • Favourite TV Program: Taskmaster (who wouldn’t love a go at those tasks!)

If you could invite anyone round for dinner, who would it be?

  • Ozzie Ardiles (to teach me how to master that flick he does in Escape to Victory)

  • Michael Palin (I just love his sense of humour and imagine he must have some incredibly interesting anecdotes)

  • Angus Young (to ask him if the video for Thunderstruck at River Plate was real – what a gig!)
