Nicola Peters is a Business Support Manager for BIE’s transformation team. We caught up with Nikki to learn more about her crucial role within the transformation practice, her life in Formula 1 before she joined BIE and who she'd be for the day if she could be anyone...
In a nutshell, my role is to support the day-to-day operations for the transformation team. They are a fast-paced and results-driven team, so it certainly keeps me on my toes. In addition to this, I also work closely with the wider BIE team to organise targeted BIE networking events for our community of candidates and clients.
I really love to learn. Learning more about recruitment and the people I work with every day really makes me tick.
Working hard and taking time to learn new skills is really important. I also think keeping a positive attitude and investing time in exercise and enjoying life outside of work helps performance in the office.
Prior to joining BIE, I was Personal Assistant to the CEO at JI Catering, who hold the hospitality contracts for Haas and Ferrari Formula 1 teams, so I spent my time traveling with the teams and was fortunate enough to see the world.
Operations is the glue that holds the teams together and enables them to focus on delivering excellent client service and candidate care. The whole operations team supports each other and works hard to stay organised so our respective teams of consultants can focus on what they do best.
Strong organisation and communication skills are key.
In a world where you can be anything, be kind.
I am passionate about being prompt with tasks and helping my team as quickly as possible to get things completed .. and fire rockets!
The culture is like family, everyone looks out for each other, works hard and delivers excellent results. BIE also gave me the opportunity to move remotely to Dubai for 2 years as my partner had a job offer. They were very supportive and helped me make it work.
The onboarding was brilliant – Lisa does an amazing job! Although it was virtual, due to the pandemic, I was given a detailed PowerPoint of information ahead of all my meetings and the information was all really helpful and relevant – I also felt like I was given the correct amount of work early on.
I lived in LA for 6 years.
