Nick’s interest in organizations and people management has developed over several years having been involved in the family business which he then went on to manage. Following this experience, Nick had a 10 year spell working for Norwich Union Life & Pensions where he became a senior accountant. His role involved managing the relationship between Life Finance and the investment fund managers in London, where he further developed his interests in human attitudes and behaviour at work.

Following Honours at Bachelors and Masters level, Nick achieved a PGCE in post-compulsory education and training, and completed a PhD at the University of Leeds in organizational behaviour. His PhD thesis focused on perceived fairness in the merger and acquisition process, its antecedents and outcomes. This being a relatively unexplored area of organizational psychology, the findings were of considerable interest.


Nick’s main research interests are to gain a better understanding of employment relationships and how these are affected by attitudes at work such as perceived fairness, trust and organizational commitment. Nick’s other main research interest is organizational change and its impact on the employee, particularly the dynamics of its relationships with identity and organizational culture. However, his broader interests cross the boundaries of organizational psychology.
