Rachel joined PLMR in 2021 and supports clients with public relations, media relations and reputation management.
Before joining PLMR, Rachel worked for three years at a PR agency based in Cambridgeshire. She gained a wide range of experience in the education, charity, public and private sectors and developed skills across a range of disciplines, including media relations, public relations, community engagement, change management and reputation management.
Rachel’s specialism is Education PR, having worked closely with a variety of school trusts, as well as education recruitment websites. She also specialises in internal communications, carrying out audits and supporting change programmes for national companies. Alongside this, Rachel also supported with comms for a global engineering firm and regional housebuilder, gained experience in the planning and community engagement department, and co-ran Peterborough’s City Leadership Forum, which is a network that brings together senior leaders to innovate and help progress the city.
Alongside her role at PLMR, Rachel volunteers for the national Engage for Success movement, which promotes employee engagement as a better way to work because it benefits individual employees, teams and whole organisations.
Rachel graduated from Newcastle University with a First-Class BA Hons in Geography in 2017 and her dissertation was focused on the future of Smart Cities.
