Our People

Our focus is on our people.

Both Directors had the good fortune to join strong graduate programmes and were given many opportunities to grow – via role rotations, education, coaching and mentoring.

Consequently, we strive to place our employees with clients where we know they will grow.

We provide a learning pathway to ensure our employees are qualified to a gold standard, giving them a competitive edge to further their career.

We create a programme of webinars and events over the three years.

Achieving Success Lecture Series

Coming up: Managing Informants - Thursday 10th October

Nick Inge – Director, iTrust Assurance Ltd

The son of a former Army officer, Nick graduated in 1991 with a degree in economics. Following a period travelling and working abroad he returned to the UK and in 1994 joined Kent Police. After a period as a uniformed officer he joined a local intelligence unit.

He soon developed an interest and a specialism in recruiting and handling informants. Initially this was working with informants who provided information about local crime but not long after led him to join Special Branch. This involved him working alongside other government agencies and managing informants that were pivotal to high-profile operations tackling terrorism, domestic extremism, serious crime and corruption.

In 2007 Nick was promoted and after a short period back in uniform started managing informant handling teams across the spectrum of criminality from local crime to terrorism. He finished his career supervising teams involved in Counter Terrorism and now owns and manages a whistleblowing consultancy, iTrust Assurance Ltd. He is the author of two books.

Join us at 6.00pm on Thursday 10th October 2019 at The Yorkshire Grey, WC1X 8PN for a talk from Nick Inge. Drinks and snacks provided!
