Nicola joined Oxfam GB in November 2016 as Deputy Director of Fundraising and was appointed Audience Engagement Director in October 2018. With a new audience focused strategy, Nicola is responsible for ensuring that in public activities, Oxfam listens and responds to the interests and focus of its supporters. When in contact with Oxfam (for whatever reason), it should be easy, interesting, informative and inspiring.
Nicola's first charity role in 1993 was at World Vision and she has since worked across UK and international charities for humanitarian and development programmes and medical and child-welfare causes. Before joining Oxfam, Nicola consulted for two years with a range of charities on their strategies and income generation. Previously a founding trustee of AfricaCheck (Africa's first fact-checking organisation) and currently a trustee of Livability in honour of her sister who was a beneficiary of their services.
Having taken a Metallurgy degree in Oxford with Oxfam quite literally on her doorstep, Nicola is proud to be able to use her years of charity and communication experience to further develop engagement with Oxfams supporters so that every one of their actions is rewarding and valued.
