claire cruickshankWelcome to Grainger PR.

Throughout my career, I’ve observed the exciting work and human interest stories that crop up every day within organisations, from micro-businesses and charities to national companies.  I’ve also seen the huge difference effective PR and communications can make – helping clients reach their audiences in the right way.

This led me to set up my own consultancy in 2007, offering a personal and professional public relations service to help clients grow their reputation and their business.

My passion and career progression follow a Grainger family tradition, dating back over 100 years.

I honed my early skills as a broadcast journalist with local radio station Radio Tay. I then moved to Beattie Communications, one of Scotland’s most successful PR companies and, latterly, worked as Press Officer at the University of St Andrews. With its famous undergraduate HRH Prince William, I was dealing with the world’s press and a raft of associated challenges, which significantly upped my skillset, contacts and experience.

My passion and career progression follow a Grainger family tradition, dating back over 100 years. My great-grandfather was a photographer in the pioneering days and my grandfather was chief photographer/photo journalist with Aberdeen Journals. More recently, my uncle was Editor-in-Chief of the Highland News Group, worked for Scottish Television (STV), and also an award-winning press photographer. Last, but by no means least, my father John Grainger’s career was underpinned by publicity and promotional work.

Put simply, PR and communications are in my blood.
