Skyline was poised for growth but the Board was struggling to understand the implications of this with the current organisational structure. Nicholas was quick to offer his support and crafted an engagement which was inclusive, professional and supportive. He quickly established a strong rapport with staff and Directors, clearly articulated the key issues in a way that the Board could grapple with, and proposed pragmatic and relevant solutions that were embraced by the board. As the Chairman I greatly appreciated Nick’s knowledge of the sector, his ability to synthesise a vast array of inputs and his guidance through the process.
I highly recommend Nick as an expert executive sounding board in Government, Corporate and Not-for-profit contexts and a most supportive champion for change.

I have worked with Nicholas in a classification and salary review for Boroondara’s Local Laws Support Service Officers. This review was undertaken at a time of industrial disharmony within this team and Nicholas, through his professional and experienced approach, was able to provide an outcome that was balanced and thorough. I would recommend Nicholas for future roles in remuneration and classification review processes. He brought a wealth of knowledge that aided in the acceptance of the outcomes.

I have known and worked with Nick Jackson for well over 10 years. Nick has always been my first call for professional advice on remuneration and personnel issues. His advice and support has always been timely and practical.
He has a good feel for cultural perspectives and their importance in delivering results. I both enjoyed and benefitted personally from his support and advice. I have no hesitation in recommending Nick as a professional Human Resources advisor.

I have known Nicholas Jackson for over ten years and sought his support and advice on matters relating to executive remuneration and performance pay on many occasions. He has always delivered against my expectations by taking the time to fully understand the nature of each executive job and thoroughly research the relevant remuneration markets. He has also been able to provide real insight into the design of short and long-term incentive plans while paying particular attention to the inter relationship of key roles within the organisation. This was achieved based on his understanding of our role as the owner / operator of the largest open cut coal mine in the Southern hemisphere and the largest Victorian Power Station in the Australian Energy Sector.
