Nichola Ebbern - Speaker
Associate Director
Capita Real Estate and Infrastructure

Nichola is passionate about safety, health and wellbeing. Her background is diverse with experience in a variety of organisations such as Battersea Dog’s and Cat’s Home, Christie’s Auction House, Spectrum Housing Group and EMCOR UK as well as military experience as an Army officer which has led to a broad skill set. Her roles have often had operational focus but always with a health and safety bent. 

Nichola has had great success leading these organisations in creating healthier and safer working environments and improving their overall safety culture. Her excitement and drive to support staff to be more effective in the workplace led her to join the Capita H&S Consultancy to enable her to reach out to a larger number of organisations. 

At Capita, Nichola’s role is to take her experience and enthusiasm for stress and mental health management in the workplace and create products that can truly help organisations manage their staff in a compassionate way. 

This then allows the organisation to become more productive, reduce costs such as recruitment and absence management and become an employer of choice. In addition to leading the Wellness at Work team, Nichola also manages Capita’s health and safety training division, delivering both accredited and bespoke training across a multitude of H&S topics. 

Helping some of the country’s leading organisations such as Skanska and Southern Water to ensure their employees are trained to the highest standards. Nichola provides training at all levels from senior leadership and throughout the operational structure
