Nicola is a founder of BIRCH-HR with Sam Hulson. Nicola has extensive HR experience in the public and private sectors across education, manufacturing and engineering.
Nicola’s core specialism, adding a great deal of value to our clients, is working alongside Catholic school and multi-academy companies and supporting maintained, free and independent schools, academies and multi-academy trusts as a Senior HR advisor and consultant.
Nicola is also mum to George, who is living with the life limiting disease Cystic Fibrosis. She spent 4 gruelling years campaigning for life saving drugs to be made available on the NHS while they were locked in a financial dispute with the pharmaceutical company. The first step of that campaign was successful in October 2019.
This week the news broke that the next generation of CF drugs will be available on the NHS as soon as they are available. For George, this is the nearest thing to a cure!
