Clients – As a consultant, Nick has had repeat work from some clients in the public and private sector for more than ten years.
Commercial – VAT Registered and Insured.
Experience – 26 years consultancy experience for a wide range of private industry, regulator and government clients on projects of different sizes and requiring a wealth of skills.
Flexibility – One of these ways of working should be of interest to you:
- Strategy development and design of projects;
- Advise / train / support your in-house team;
- Deliver stand alone projects;
- Collaborate with your other consultants;
- Represent your organisation.
Hands-On – When you engage Nick to do work, he brings his experience and expertise to all parts of the delivery and not just the management of the work.
Innovative – Sometimes problems require a new approach – Nick has previously developed new approaches for problems associated with e.g. groundwater vulnerability, nitrates impacting public water supplies, and the impact of surcharging of landfills.
Quality & EMS – Nick has previously worked under ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 and works with these requirements in mind now. See the Quality and EMS page for more information.
Reputation – Nick has written national guidance on groundwater risk assessment, been engaged as a national expert on some aspects of landfill hydrogeology, and given a range of well received presentations at national conferences.
Value – As RUKHYDRO Limited has low overheads, Nick's rate is likely to be much better value for you than someone with his experience in a larger consultancy. Put another way, your money is likely to buy 40-50% more time.
Wider Support – Nick has contacts with a number of other associates and larger consultancies and so can build a wider project team if required.
