Nigel Price is an experienced outplacement consultant who has helped over 500 candidates to cope with the experience of redundancy and find new jobs.
Having originally gone to University College London to study Mathematics, he instead gained a degree in English. His subsequent career has been equally varied.
He has written three text books on computer programming and operating system design and in the 1990s trained programmers from both Microsoft and IBM. In recent years, he has designed and built websites for a range of organisations. As a consultant for Bible Society’s Computer Aided Translation Department, he has also compiled and edited two published back-of-the-bible concordances, one for the Contemporary English Version (CEV) and the other for a 400th anniversary commemorative edition of the King James Bible.
Nigel has also written, produced and sometimes directed video and audio training programmes for many companies and organisations, including Sainsbury’s, Brake Bros, United Distillers (now Diageo), Dupont, William Hill, East Midlands Electricity, the Methodist Association of Youth Clubs and the Dearne Valley Partnership.
Nigel is a member of Cirencester Baptist Church and is a busy lay preacher and former lay pastor of King’s Stanley Baptist Church.
He is currently trying to finish a comic novel about nineteenth century scientists. The Science Fiction Grand Master Gene Wolfe dedicated two novels to him (Home Fires and A Borrowed Man) and once wrote in the anthology Ghosts by Gaslight that Nigel is “intimately familiar with the culture of Victorian England”. He isn’t really, but it was a very nice thing for him to say!
