Nick Bruton

Nick qualified as an Environmental Health Officer in 1999 after graduating from Manchester Metropolitan University with a BSc (Hons) degree and followed this up in 2003 with a Postgraduate Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety from the University of Birmingham. He spent a total of 12 years working in Local Government in busy West Midlands authorities where he developed a broad range of experience in both health and safety and food safety. Nick was also involved in major accident investigations, handling workplace safety complaints and dealing with food safety related queries.

Nick joined the Company in 2012 and thoroughly enjoys being part of the dynamic team he works with. He now assists a very wide range of businesses to include multi-site builders merchants and restaurants, golf courses and hauliers to name but a few. He prides himself on offering a very friendly and positive approach with each of his clients and always ensures a commercially sensible approach to advising clients with the knowledge he developed through his enforcement role.

Outside of work, Nick quite fancies himself as a dab hand with DIY tasks and is currently taking great pride in fitting out his new home with all of the mod cons and also enjoys cooking for his family. In between that his 14 month old son demands much of his attention and this in turn has led Nick to become quite an authority in his new areas of expertise, Peppa Pig and Spongebob Squarepants. When Nick can make it away from home, he is an avid follower of Aston Villa although based on recent seasons performances he hasn’t felt the need to publicise this fact too much!
