RCUK are pleased to announce they have engaged the specialist compliance consultancy firm, Miller Beare.
Miller Beare Compliance Consultants are a specialist team helping businesses to achieve authorisation, manage regulatory obligations and empower directors and personnel at all levels with focused compliance training. They interpret the regulations and provide practical, usable solutions that will work for both RCUK and the regulators. Their bespoke solutions tailored to the commercial environment ensure that their recommendations are fully compliant.
The directors are knowledgeable, experienced consultants drawing on expertise derived from operating successful compliance and training businesses, including more than 12 years collective expertise derived from supporting the Claims Management Regulator.
Co-Founding director Helena Beare started her career in Trading Standards before moving into commercial legal advice specialising in employment law and business compliance.
She operated as a consultant for the Ministry of Justice’s Claims Management Regulation Unit (“CMRU”) for more than 6 years; providing her business and legal acumen both to the application process and the auditing and monitoring of claims management companies (“CMCs”). She was instrumental in devising the current processes within the CMRU relating to CMCs seeking to operate in the field of regulated employment claims. She also demonstrates a wealth of knowledge in what it takes to qualify as an Exempt Introducer under the current regulatory regime and the upcoming requirements of the Financial Conduct Authority.
Helena’s co-director Julie Miller also started her career in Trading Standards before specialising in training provisions across multiple workplace skillsets. She also has more than 6 years’ experience as a consultant with the CMRU specialising in the identification of unauthorised claims management activity and providing professional guidance to businesses on the requirements to be regulated.
RCUK take its regulatory obligatory very seriously and the engagement of Miller Beare is a significant step forward to preparing and achieving full FCA regulation in June/July this year.
RCUK will continue to update you on all the implications of the new FCA regulation over the coming months.
