Nicola originally joined the firm as a CA trainee in 1999, gaining valuable experience in audit, accountancy and tax, together with her CA qualification. Post qualification she spent sixteen years working for two top ten firms, spending nine years in the central belt of Scotland, with a further three years in Dublin, and four years in Aberdeen. She re-joined French Duncan in January 2019 as Audit Partner.
Nicola has substantial experience in privately owned companies, listed companies and large corporate groups, based both in the UK, Ireland, and internationally. Her experience extends to businesses operating in the construction, technology, food and drink, retail, leisure, and manufacturing sectors, and the knowledge she has amassed in audit and assurance allows her to be instrumental in the delivery of high quality audits.
Having worked in professional practice all of her career, and with a wide variety of clients, Nicola continues to enjoy understanding each business she works with, and the challenges they face. Taking the time to understand her clients provides her with a detailed understanding of the business issues they face, and allows her to use her breadth of experience to focus on delivering value to her clients with a practical and commercial approach.
