Staff Interview – Nicola

Welcome to the first in a series of staff interviews we will be publishing so you are able to get to know the people that make up DNG Dove Naish. This week it is the turn of our Administration Assistant, Nicola

 

I have worked at DNG Dove Naish as an Administration Assistant for over a year, working alongside the Practice Manager Andrew Picker. I have previously worked as an Email Customer Service Team Leader in an inbound contact centre after graduating from the University of Northampton where I studied Psychology.

What led you to work with DNG?

After working at my last place of employment for five years I had gone as far as I could – I knew the role back to front and inside out! So I was looking for a challenge and to try my hand at something new. I was recruited via Debbie Burbage Financial Recruitment in May 2017, and both the team at DBFR and DNG were so friendly and welcoming.

What part of your job do you love the most?

I enjoy the variety of my job. I can be doing something different every day in my role, with a mixture of small tasks and large projects.

What’s the best part of living / working in Northampton?

For me, one of the best parts of living in Northampton is its central location. From where we are I can get to Birmingham or London in an hour and to the seaside in two hours. We also have some beautiful villages and countryside just outside of the centre. The DNG office is a five minute walk from town centre, so it is very handy to be able to pop into town on a lunch break.

What is your book recommendation?

I recently read ‘This is going to hurt: Secret diaries of a Junior Doctor’ by Adam Kay which I would highly recommend. It is a real mix of laugh out loud funny moments but also quite deep though provoking moments. This is going to be a book I’m sure I will re-read a few times.

What’s the best piece of life advice you’ve been given?

It’s a common one but – Life is short so make the most of it!

Andrew Picker
