Nicola Fooks

Recruitment Support Consultant

I have worked at aap3 for 12 years, initially as an IT Account Manager and now as a Recruitment Support Consultant primarily in the Defence & Aerospace arena.

I recruit IT professionals at all levels and I am always interested in speaking to anyone who is looking for a new role for themselves, a new team member or indeed is just keen to get an understanding of the current market.

Outside of work I’m mum to 2 energetic young kiddies who like to take me on crazy long bike rides.
