Jill Nother
CIPD Senior Tutor and Trustee of the Jill Nother Scholarship CIC Ltd

I founded Busec in 2002 and served as the leader of the business until 2019. Today, I look after a small portfolio of students as I move towards retirement.

In 2021, we were able to launch a long-held dream of ours to offer scholarships for students who would like to forge good careers for themselves in people management, but are held back by being unable to fund the cost of studying for a CIPD qualification.

So, while I reduce my daily work with Busec Nova and the CIPD, I’m looking forward to my role as a trustee with the JN Scholarship. I’ll be using my skills and experience, gained from a variety of HR and training roles in the public sector, to good advantage as we support our scholarship students to achieve training, CIPD and ILM qualifications.

I gained my CIPD Post-Graduate Diploma in 1994 and became a Chartered FCIPD in 1997.

Outside of work, I enjoy reading, cooking, gardening, good walks and holidays where I can experience different environments and cultures. I love my weekly zumba, yoga and pilates classes. I also volunteer for two charities when I can: The Rowans Hospice and Chichester Cat and Rabbit Rescue Centre. I get to meet some lovely people through that.
