Nicola is the newest member of our Board.
She initially joined us as an advisor to the Board in 2019 with a specific remit of developing business relationships and enhancing our member services. She was co-opted on to the Board in June 2020.
Nicola’s career has been spent in management and business development, predominantly in education, working in senior management positions and running her own training company. More recently, she is working in the defense sector as well as supporting local businesses with HR advice. Nicola also has vast experience of government funding and tendering.
Born in Dalton, Nicola has lived and worked in the area all her life and really understands the needs of the local community. Like all Board members, she fully supports the credit union ethos and believes that, with its own challenges brought about by the dichotomy between wealth and poverty in the town, the Credit Union is a fundamentally critical organisation to Barrow and the surrounding area.
In her spare time Nicola enjoys spending quality time with her family and enjoys walking and socialising with her friends.
