Cause UK

Meet the Team

Clair is managing director of Cause UK.

Starting her career in the marketing departments of fintech and private banking in London, she moved to the Third Sector with Action for Children and Yorkshire Cancer Research, before setting up Cause UK in 2010.

She combines Californian vibes with a Yorkshire work ethic. Her speciality is big idea projects, media stunts, and broadcast stories. She has a knack for engaging meaningful support from celebrities for our campaigns.

A graduate of Warwick University and the University of California, Clair has a Chartered Institute of Marketing Postgrad qualification from Cambridge Marketing College, and leadership qualifications from Sandhurst Military Academy.

She was the Institute of Directors’ Director of the Year for Social Value and Sustainability (2020), and for the Public/Not for Profit Sector, Yorkshire and Humber (2014).

Clair has been an adviser to Leeds Beckett University School of Business and Law, a Trustee of Martin House Children’s Hospice and the Harrogate Homeless Project, a founding director of the Veterans’ Artisan Bakery at Catterick, and a Trustee to the festival she curated, the Malton Dickensian Festival.

She is a Reuters trained digital journalist and Google accredited marketeer.

The clue is in the name! Sister, Ann Chadwick, joined Cause UK in 2011 as a co- director.

Her experience combines working as an account manager in a PR agency, an in- house journalist for a web marketing team, and her first love – feature writing.

As a feature writer for regional newspapers, Ann had stints on the Guernsey Press and Lancashire Telegraph, writing on everything from an earthquake in Iran to interviewing Ian McKellen.

A bookseller in a previous life, she leads on Cause UK’s festival and literary clients.

Her journalism talents are invaluable to Cause UK clients, writing everything from websites, impact reports, brochures, and press releases; Ann still writes features for news and magazines
