Nicky’s insight and expertise stem from her 27 year career in the Army, in command, training, career management, technical and operational roles. From 2009-2012, as a brigadier (and the most senior woman in the Army), she was responsible for the leadership, professional output and standards of 4500 soldiers and for delivering major business and cultural change.
Her broader career experience spans strategy, policy, finance, governance and audit roles in Army Headquarters, the MOD and at the heart of Government. As a Private Secretary, she supported the Defence Secretary during a period of politically-charged decision making throughout fast-moving operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and Sierra Leone.
