Nick Tindley

Partner and Executive Manager, HR Consulting and Advisory

Nick is a Partner at Citation Legal and the Executive Manager of HR Consulting and Advisory Services at Citation HR. Based in our Melbourne office, he has over 19 years’ experience in providing industrial relations and employment law advice, with particular expertise in the retail industry. In his role as Executive Manager, Nick supervises both the consulting and advisory teams at Citation HR and is responsible for managing a number of key client relationships.

“In my work at Citation Legal and Citation HR, I focus on providing our clients with solutions, not answers. The advice and assistance I give is designed to build the business’s own capability. I also make sure I get to the heart of an issue so that I can come up with the right solution. I always put a great deal of effort into understanding the way a client’s business operates, their cultural values, and exactly what issues they are trying to address. After all, this is the framework in which the business operates and it’s crucial that any solution I propose for a client fits harmoniously within that framework.”

Nick’s areas of expertise include:

  • Negotiating enterprise agreements.
  • Managing No-Disadvantage Test /Better Off Overall Test compliance.
  • Drafting and reviewing employment contracts.
  • Managing executive terminations and redundancies.
  • Managing underpayment claims.
  • Advising on equal opportunity and harassment issues.
  • Advising on how to manage ill and injured workers.


  • Bachelor of Laws (Queensland University of Technology).
