His career in the world of bricks and mortar was with Unite, a provider of student accommodation, as a project manager and consultant. Before this he qualified as a Chartered Accountant with Ernst and Young. Nick graduated from Exeter College, Oxford with a degree in Engineering Science and is currently pursuing a PhD in Theology through the Faculty of Divinity.
