Nick Aldworth retired from a 36 year career in the military and policing in May 2019. Across that time he enjoyed multiple operational roles, with the last 5 years serving within counter-terrorism (CT) and retiring as the UK’s CT National Coordinator for Protect and Prepare where his teams were responsible for helping make the UK stronger against terrorism and more resilient to its impacts.
He was London’s CT protective security and preparedness lead during the 2017 terrorist attacks, responsible for coordinating the police protective security response to those incidents as well as supporting the private sector to make themselves stronger. Prior to this, Nick was head of policing and security at Parliament, managing a mixed team of 500 security and police officers. From 2011 to 2012, Nick was the firearms planner and commander for the 2012 Olympic Venues in Central London.
On retirement, Nick joined forces with Figen Murray, whose son was murdered in the Manchester Arena attack, and Brendan Cox, the husband of Jo Cox MP, in campaigning for the UK Protect Duty, and he was the author of the proposal on which the government has recently consulted.
Nick set up his own company, Risk to Resolution Ltd (R2R), with a view to helping organisations identify the challenges they face and support them, and their staff, in resolving them.
