Rachel is currently working as a Market Data Analyst at Lloyds Banking Group, and started her career at 18, choosing an apprenticeship route. She applied for the Apprentice Management Accountant role at Lloyds, but was unsuccessful and was offered an apprenticeship in providing financial services which took two years to complete whilst working in a Halifax branch as a Customer Adviser. From there she became a Customer Consultant specialising in savings options for bank customers. After 3 years working in a branch, Rachel applied for a Level 4 Project Management Higher apprenticeship working on Legal, Regulatory and Mandatory projects such as Ring Fence Bank and Brexit. Following 2 years’ experience in Project Management, she decided to develop as a Business Analyst focussing on Market Data, which has been her field for the last 2 years.
