Our people

Lucy Ghawss


“Having a happy team really does drive performance and enhance client relationships”.

I joined Rayner Essex in 2008, having commenced my career as a placement student and then returning as a graduate in the Audit department, going on to qualify with the ICAEW as a Chartered Accountant within the firm.

As Partner and Head of Audit, I have overall responsibility for the firms ACA graduate training programme and I’m currently the President of the ICAEW Bedfordshire & Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire District Society.

As a general practitioner with extensive experience in working with various clients ranging from start ups to SME’s and large corporations from all industry sectors, my main aim is to transform audit to a pleasurable and meaningful experience for both clients and our team alike.

I am an advocate for mental health and wellbeing and my main focus whilst managing a team is to create a happy working environment, where people can feel comfortable and authentic. I strongly believe that having a motivated team really does drive performance and is a leading factor in Rayner Essex providing excellent customer service.

Outside of work I can be found either at the gym, socialising with friends or simply chilling out with a good box set.
