Congratulations to our Global Recruitment & Talent Acquisition Manager, Nichola Davies, who has been shortlisted as a regional finalist for ‘Forward Ladies’ under the category ‘Emerging Leader & STEM Rising Star’.

The Forward Ladies National Awards & Summit recognise the achievements of business women in the UK. They encourage the growth of women and celebrate their success.

Nichola has been identified as an exceptional leader within a large corporate organisation, who has demonstrated a high level of progression.

Since joining thebigword in February 2019, Nichola and her team have successfully recruited 70 new members of staff, entirely eliminated the use of agencies, as well as increasing our online recruitment and talent presence and streamline our global recruitment process. Starting in recruitment agencies, Nichola has now been in the recruitment industry for 10 years.

 Leanne Bottomley, Global Director of HR, said: “I am thrilled that Nichola’s contribution within the Talent Acquisition space has been recognised by Forward Ladies.

Not only has Nichola made a huge influence to our Global Recruitment strategy, she is also a valued member of our senior leadership team.”
