In 2005, she started working in the Bristol office, gained her Certificate of Proficiency in Insolvency which enabled her to study for the Joint Insolvency Examination Board (JIEB)
Rachel said: “I got a non-appointment taking licence in 2012 and then earlier this year I decided to convert to an appointment taking licence. My first appointment as a Joint Administrator was in March 2014.
