“My name is Nicole and I am responsible for Human Resources here at Aspire in the Community.
I absolutely love working in the field of HR, I am passionate about the value that our staff bring to the organisation and, more importantly, the people we are supporting. I believe that team members are integral to the outcomes achieved by the service they work in and this has a really positive impact on service users.
One part of my role is supporting the development of team members, and nothing pleases me more than seeing individuals achieve their full potential, people who too often don’t realise their own capabilities and the importance of their role.
I love encouraging, coaching and upskilling people and seeing the way in which people grow and develop, both personally and professionally. I am really interested in employee engagement, successions planning and development and culture, and have a very keen interest in employment law.
I am proud to have achieved the Level 5 CIPD Diploma. I am even prouder that I have managed to achieve this valuable qualification whilst raising my daughter who is almost two. Balancing my career with being a great Mum motivates me on a daily basis. Outside of work, I love spending time with her, my partner, and my labrador Jasper. I am lucky to have a great circle of friends, we try to get together every few months for a catch up over cocktails!”
