Katy Nicholas - Vice President (Regulatory PM) at Barclays (Law LLB Hons, 2012)

I wanted a well-rounded course with amazing teaching but also a chance to study subjects in depth, like law and medicine or terrorism and counter-terrorism law. I had a brief stint working as an account assistant for a high end concierge company in London but missed the academic challenge of law and finance. I work in regulatory project management, in banks. I started out working as a Business Analyst/PMO with First Derivatives plc, working in banks in Singapore and Dublin. During my time in Dublin I worked as a project manager for a regulatory programme and absolutely loved the challenge and fulfilment of managing an end to end delivery. I then moved back to London to start working for Barclays as a Project Manager VP on a regulation called BCBS 239. I currently work there and absolutely love it. Newcastle gave me a well rounded education and an ability to decipher and regurgitate detailed information.
