Jill Nicholson

Director (Operations & People)

I have worked for Cartrefi since 1998 when I was appointed as a performance manager for Bridgend, Cardiff and the Vale. I then became a Regional Director following our restructure in 2000. My previous work experience is in homelessness and housing advice which I did for 16 years in London and Cardiff.

The best part of my job is meeting all sorts of people - many of the people we support and their families, our employees and community supporters. I believe that the work that we do really makes a difference to people's lives and it's inspiring for me to see the good work that our teams are doing.

In my spare time I enjoy knitting and crochet, gardening, reading (especially crime novels). walking and cooking
