Nichola's experience within HR is hard to beat. Always approachable, reliable and level-headed under pressure, she's a consummate HR professional.

Mark Elliott

Publishing Director at Morris Visitor Publications

Nichola oversaw a period of tremendous change at Time Out and helped manage the people in the business through a challenging time. Her balance of strong pragmatism and focus on the issues at hand meant issues were dealt with decisively and fairly. She was able to juggle many issues at once and was always personable but professional. As a Board colleague, Nichola's passion for the business and its people was obvious and she met each chapter of our time there with good humour and integrity. I valued my relationship with Nichola there and her contribution to that business over many years is indisputable. She will bring a wealth of great experience to any business scenario.

Andrew Shields

Writer, editor and communications professional

Nichola understood that the best way to recruit and retain staff is to create a positive and supportive working environment, and people greatly respected her for that.

Paul Shaw
Director at Mercatus Consulting Ltd

We worked closely  on a number of projects. I always found Nichola to be capable, resourceful, supportive and diligent. She had a particularly challenging role, which she managed with humour and grace

Dominic Wells

Freelance journalist, marketing copywriter, screenwriter, editor

Time Out is a company full of large personalities, and it takes a strong person not only to keep them in line, but to motivate, encourage and get the best from them. In all my dealings with Nichola concerning my 40-odd editorial staff, and there were many, she was firm but fair, always approachable and open to argument, human and refreshingly jargon-free.

Mark Phillips

Former New Business & Commercial Director, Time Out Guides, Time Out Group (London)

I worked with Nichola for many years and during that time she was always totally professional, knowledgeable, helpful and supportive in all HR issues at Time Out Group.

Coulthard Human Resources has worked on a number of projects for us and Nichola has been enthusiastic and very helpful. I would say that our staff almost regard Nichola as a member of our team and has been at one of our Company Days!
Nichola is very experienced and her down to earth character makes her a pragmatic and valued adviser to us.

It is important for us to have the very best outsourced services so we employed Coulthard HR to give us professional HR solutions.  I have no hesitation in recommending Coulthard HR services to any growing business.

Nichola should be very proud of the excellent and professional level of customer service and advice she provides. Her services helped avoid a potential employment tribunal claim that could have resulted in financial loss and stress.

I could think of many words to praise Nichola, but these come immediately to mind; extremely knowledgeable, quick and thorough attention to any matter.

Coulthard Human Resources truly saved heartache, time and money, by swooping in and taking our HR processes in hand. From ensuring our contracts were valid under current law our employee handbook was up to date with all relevant policies and ensuring our staff understood what the policies actually meant and our managers know how use the disciplinary procedures properly . An absolute life saver, I now have complete peace of mind in respect of all my HR.

Nichola ran a very approachable HR Team. I felt very comfortable going to her with any concerns or questions I had and would love to work with her again.
Graham Todman
User Experience & Interface Designer
Of all the places I've worked Time Out had the best HR department under Nichola's management. HR was a day-to-day part of the business, both in terms of welfare of the staff and in keeping a clear line of communication between staff and the management. You always knew what was going on and where the business was headed.
