Who we are


About Clare Edwards

Clare launched Regency Recruitment on 6th April 1998 after working successfully as Branch Manager for a national agency.

Clare says ‘We have developed a unique strategy based on the fact we are not sales led but service driven ensuring we deliver the service our customers and staff want and deserve’.

Clare feels privileged to have been able to create a friendly, local company so that she is able to meet every single customer and staff member that Regency work with. Clare loves that over the years so many customers and staff members have come to rely on her when they are in need of help.

To relax outside of running Regency Clare studies martial arts, training in karate, kobudo and tai chi.

Having travelled to Japan for training camps in Okinawa and Tokyo.
Through Martial Arts Clare has had the wonderful opportunity to travel to Israel to train at the Haifa Dojo, explore Tel Aviv and experience the holy sites in Nazareth & Jerusalem.

A dream would be to practise Tai Chi on the Great Wall of China.

Clare supports the British Heart Foundation and annually cycles from London to Brighton to raise important funds for research.

Living in Pitchcombe, Clare loves village life and is blessed to be part of a vibrant and peaceful village community. Where she can often be found helping to organise the annual village fete, church flower festivals, and making canapés to be enjoyed with Pimms on the lawn.
