Nicky is a geologist who has spent time travelling internationally working in various mines, exploration projects and civil infrastructure. When she decided to have children and return to Tasmania it was important to her to find a role which provided opportunities to maintain connection with the industry she loved but still be able to spend quality time with her children. She found this in pitt&sherry where her role as Ground Engineering Team leader has provided opportunity to build a skilled team of mining, geotechnical and geological experts who work on projects in Australia and across the globe. Nicky and hr partner work flexibly to manage school and play commitments and include travel for work as and when required including site work in Philippines, PNG and remote Australia. She also managed to take 6 months leave to spend time with her children before they embarked on high school. Nicky works 4 days a week on varied days and times, from home some days, or in one of the many p&s offices, all supported by the any place/ any time technology which all staff have access to. She also has a role as executive director on the pitt&sherry board where she works collaboratively with other board members from offices in Melbourne, Launceston and Hobart.
