With over thirty years' experience of working within the Financial Services sector, Avril joined Neil Gayler & Co. in 2014 and is thoroughly enjoying her work here.

She is faced with a different challenge every day and relishes her varied workload. A typical working day is always busy with financial planning, investments and administering mortgage applications.

Part of her job is to meet and greet clients and other visitors, and to provide a warm welcome to telephone callers. The main part of her day is often filled with the processing new business, the maintenance of client records and speaking to providers, solicitors and building societies on the telephone. She is the hard-working administrative engine behind our continuing success.

Before joining Neil Gayler & Co., Avril worked for a large insurance company in Gloucester where she gained a vast amount of experience and knowledge in life and pension administration and mortgage processing. She also worked in general insurance where her role was to administer and produce risk reports for company surveyors.

Avril has grown up twin sons and when she is not running our busy office, she likes to spend time with her family and socialising with her friends. She is currently serving as a Community Governor for a primary school in Gloucester. As a Governor, her role is to support the teaching and non- teaching staff within the learning environment to ensure best practice is maintained within the school. The skills she has learned in this role have been very useful and enhance her role at Neil Gayler & Co..

She also has a passion for baking and creating cakes for friends and family, and she loves designing wedding cakes.
