Information about our services for patients and families.Our care services
Our Chief Executive and Executive Leadership Team (ELT) members support the Board of Trustees, leading the charity’s operations and overseeing the day to day running of both hospices – Chestnut Tree House and St Barnabas House. Heading up the various departments within the charity, the ELT meets regularly to review organisational performance, manage the implementation of strategy and agree policy.
Nicole recently joined the charity in February 2021 and is responsible for the overall financial strategy, planning and reporting, and financial governance at St Barnabas. She is a qualified Chartered Accountant and Corporate Treasurer and has 15 years’ experience in senior finance and strategic posts at a number of organisations both on an international and national level. Most recently, Nicole served as the Deputy Director of Finance at Barnardo’s where she led the finance function across various disciplines.
Nicole is a firm believer in empowerment and treating people with respect and compassion and has long admired organisations whose ethos has this at the heart of everything it does. She is passionate about encouraging a culture of inclusion, believing that it leads to better collaboration, understanding and compassion.
“We become much more motivated and engaged once we stand together for a greater purpose.”
When not at work, Nicole can be found exploring the scenic walks across the Downs in West Sussex, with her dog Sir Henry, or running forlornly after a tennis ball on the courts!
