Nick King

Nick King, Consultant, Project Coordinator

Originally qualifying as a chemical engineer, Nick worked for Thames Water and ICI before joining WaterAid to head its overseas work. Latterly, he worked for the Environment Agency, chairing the East Midlands Regional Climate Change Group and acting as a sustainability adviser to the GLA. Most recently he worked for Oxfordshire County Council, leading the Council’s contribution to the OxFutures project in partnership with the City Council and the Low Carbon Hub – a really good example of how partnerships, playing to individual strengths,  can help bring about the low carbon transition that Oxfordshire needs.
