Nicola has 20 years’ experience within commercial roles at Mars, United Biscuits and GlaxoSmithKline, from Territory Representative to Sales Director. As founder of Abriko, her ethos is simple: to have a recruitment consultancy where everyone has worked within FMCG and understands the industry inside and out. An agency where everyone has the knowledge to ask the right questions and genuinely understands the roles they recruit for because they’ve done them themselves. This makes abriko bespoke in every way. Nicola has recruited for major blue-chips, SMEs and start-ups in the UK and has also formed teams across Europe. She speaks French and German, is hugely passionate about the FMCG industry and outside of work has a strong interest in health and nutrition and is a qualified Personal Trainer.
Nicola graduated from the University of Nottingham with a BA in French & German.
