Rapid Solutions has further bolstered its quality insurance and training services with the appointment of Nikki Garrard, Manager Strategy, Compliance and Operations – Rapid Training.

This work included senior management roles in organisations including Forsythes Training, where she helped create and manage the company’s Career Institute.
