Nicola Taylor, Administration Office Manager

Nicola Taylor joined the BISC in April, 2013 as the Administration Office Manager.  She manages the Administration Office, and is a key figure in keeping everything running smoothly. One of her specific duties is looking after immigration information and documents for students and faculty coming to the castle from all over the world. 

Before entering the castle, Nicola had a variety of jobs including being a full time mother, and administering Health and Safety Regulations on construction sites. She then took the opportunity to study English Language at the University of Sussex for three years.  Nicola says: “I’ve retained an interest in phonology and love listening to the various accents to be heard around the castle!”

For her “working at the BISC is like coming into an enchanted kingdom each morning.   The castle is full of history and the grounds are ever changing and beautiful, particularly the 300-year-old chestnut trees.  The people who work here are friendly and many have interesting stories to tell, about the castle and about themselves....”
