Nigel joined City in April 2020 as a Research Fellow working on the Burdett Trust Early Career Nurse Retention and Burnout Project. He has more than 20 years’ experience as a social science researcher, and began his research career conducting psychological research, and teaching and lecturing at undergraduate level. Since 1999 he has specialised in community-focused research and evaluation work with initiatives that aim to bring about positive outcomes for disadvantaged communities.
He is an impact measurement specialist and in 2006 co-founded NLH Partnership, a research, evaluation, training and development organisation that specialises in helping organisations to effectively demonstrate the impacts of their work. During the past 15 years, Nigel has conducted more than 60 different social research and evaluation projects, across a range of topic areas. He has particular expertise in impact measurement for services for children and families, health promotion and improvement programmes, and community-focused, multi-agency initiatives.
Prior to forming NLH Partnership, Nigel spent four years at Birkbeck College, University of London, working for the National Evaluation of Sure Start, as a researcher, evaluation advisor, and National Coordinator. Since 2014 he has been an Analytical Associate with the UK Department for Education.
