Get to know Rachel Schofield – Senior Facilitator

Rachel is an accomplished facilitator and communications expert who reported and presented for the BBC for over twenty years, before training as a personal development and career coach.

Her journalistic career was predominantly spent presenting on the BBC’s flagship 24-hour News Channel, where she covered both domestic and international news and was highly adept at handling fast-moving stories and vigorous debate.

Now an accredited career coach, Rachel brings her journalist’s passion for challenging questions, powerful listening and fact-led storytelling to her coaching and facilitation work. She works with individuals, as well as designing and leading group coaching engagements and workshops. She is an experienced interviewer, panel chair and event MC. Her book “The Career Change Guide: Five Steps to Finding Your Dream Job” is published by Penguin.

Her coaching clients span multiple sectors from technology and finance to media and law but are united by a desire to become effective and confident drivers of their own career development.

Her favourite moment on a client engagement is when a client starts to fully trust their own ability and resourcefulness and reaps the rewards of their commitment to experimentation and action.

Out of work, Rachel can be found attempting to develop green fingers on her allotment or to indoctrinate her teenage daughters in the joy of visiting historic buildings.
