Nicola Reece

Nicola Reece

Committee Member

I’m passionate about all things Digital, specifically Digital Marketing and Technology. Having worked in Recruitment for 5 years; I understand the importance of networking. I see myself as a ‘match-maker’ whether I’m connecting a relevant person to an exciting job opportunity, a client to a talented individual or networking myself to promote my personal brand.

I started off my career as a Marketing Assistant at a corporate events company in London and quickly found myself with working in Digital Recruitment. In 2016 I made a big decision to leave the big smoke and relocated to Melbourne. I wish I was introduced to the Digital Women’s Network sooner as I truly see the benefit in networking with individuals, especially when you move to a new city like myself.

What do you enjoy most in your job or skills you have refined that could help people with if they are needing advice?

Listening and giving advice – if I can’t help someone directly I always point them in the right direction or suggest someone that can. Working in recruitment I have tailored my communication skills, interviewing skills and also resume writing.

What are your goals for joining DWN?

Connect with like-minded, passionate and digital-focused individuals. Having relocated to Melbourne in 2016 and attending networking events I understand the benefit and hope that I can bring new ideas and contribute towards the continued success of the Digital Women’s Network. I’m looking forward to promoting the DWN through my personal and professional work.

What do you enjoy about networking?

Networking provides me with a vehicle to not only grow and develop my professional and business network, it also allows me to learn and grow personally from talking to individuals who are open to sharing their career experiences to me.
