How Nicola is building a better working world

“Every day I feel I contribute a little to our organisation’s commitment to building a better working world. Whether it’s recruiting the next generation of leaders onto our graduate and apprenticeships programmes, supporting a business with its growth strategy or developing a people strategy that will propel businesses into the future world of work.
