Helen Kirkpatrick - Immigration Director - UK Immigration
Helen has gained over 25 years’ UK immigration experience, having started her career with the Home Office in Croydon. Following a fantastic five years at the front line of the Premium Service Centre, Helen assisted in the development of one of the UK's largest visa companies, before working at a prestigious accountancy firm. Helen established Definitive Immigration Services in 2003 and enjoyed working with a range of corporate and individual clients for several years. Planning a few years away from the world of immigration, Helen completed the sale of her business to CIBT in September 2014; and left to embark on new projects two years later.
Despite acquiring two demanding Portuguese Water Dogs and dutifully attending the gym, Helen missed the maelstrom of working in UK immigration and set-up a new immigration consultancy. Kirkpatrick Whyte has been established to pick up where Definitive left off, with the intention of offering a friendly, personalised, pro-active and effectual service to both UK employers and private individuals.
Nicola Fox - Immigration Consultant
Nicola worked for many years in International Sales and Marketing within the music industry, most notably with EMI Music, and at the UK’s largest music distributors and record labels within the Independent sector. The strategic placing of music product around the world, and the breaking of new artists into global markets has given Nicola the ability to identify what clients wish to achieve, and work with them to arrive at an end goal.
Having opened, run, developed and ultimately sold her own business within the hospitality and service sector, Nicola took the opportunity to venture into the expanding world of immigration where her belief in the importance of the individual is very relevant, and since then has set out to develop her collaborative, long term and relationship-driven approach working with both individual and business clients.
