Nicole is a Gamilaroi woman from Moree. Nicole has spent many years working in employment, recruitment, policy and strategy development. Her experience in the community has led her to question how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are recruited, and how their skills are recognised in organisations.
Nicole aims to develop a competency set based on the skills, knowledge and attributes that Indigenous people bring to the workforce – skills which have not been acquired through formal qualifications or training.
Nicole is currently a Mentor with Training Services NSW, supporting Aboriginal trainees and apprentices. She was previously Manager, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Workforce Engagement with the Australian Red Cross. She completed Bachelor of Business in Human Resources, and Master of International Sports Management at Southern Cross University.
