We have known our latest recruit – Nadine Weaver since 2002 when she first came to work
in one of our other business enterprises in Brighton. Nadine is from Swansea in South Wales and had already been working for some time in the St. James Veterinary Group in Wales with a BTEC National Diploma as a Veterinary Nurse.
She has since greatly extended her reach, become qualified in teaching both in the UK and overseas, with some considerable time spent working in Brazil, where we share many links in common.
We are very pleased to report that Nadine has successful qualified from Swansea University with a degree in Environmental Conservation.
Nadine has joined the team here at Isis Environmental in June 2015 and will be working on a number of projects, where we need additional research capability for new environmental business start-ups and as advisers in growth acceleration for SME’s with an environmental product or service.
Handily, Nadine can bring to the table considerable experience in Marine Biology in which Swansea excels, plus a good set of core skills, including speaking fluent Portuguese and teaching/training experience
