Rachel specialises in management development and personal effectiveness.
Rachel has 8 years’ experience of fundraising and project management in the charity sector. Before joining =mc, she specialised in direct marketing and was a Senior Project Manager at the British Red Cross managing fundraising campaigns, alongside supporting and developing the team.
I am supporting a number of UK organisations, including New Economics Foundation, National Deaf Children’s Society and Yorkshire Dales National Park, through a range of courses including Managing Multiple Priorities and Management Development. I’m looking forward to delivering =mc’s upcoming Emerging Managers Programme and working with my colleagues to develop our in-house bespoke training.
Before =mc, I worked in a range of roles at the British Red Cross. I project managed large direct marketing campaigns across different channels, including mail, telephone, digital and TV. As a team manager, I recruited, trained and supported my team to ensure they delivered an excellent experience for supporters.
Alongside my day-to-day role, I am on the roster of the Logistics Emergency Response Unit, part of the Red Cross movement’s response to international emergencies. This is a rapid response team that deploys globally following a disaster, and involves working together with experts to deliver goods to where they are needed most.
In all of my roles, I have really enjoyed working with and developing others, to ensure that they had the skills and confidence needed to deliver sustainable results. This love of developing people and delivering training has led me to concentrate on a career in learning and development.
