Rachel Sheppard

Head of Operations

Being the Resourcing Manager at Foolproof means I’m fortunate enough to occupy a position at the centre of everything we do. It’s my responsibility to ensure we have the right people working on the right projects at the right time, for the benefit of both our people and our clients. I have a keen interest technology as well as a technical background so I’m also involved with the Internal Systems team here.

Both these roles mean I get to talk to people in every area of the business. This allows me to find out exactly what new and interesting directions we’re helping our clients to take and ensure we have the skills and infrastructure to support that.

I love the challenge of adapting quickly to new situations and re-organising around changing requirements and priorities. I’ve spent my career in consultancies and agencies and love learning from and working with the enthusiastic and smart people that inhabit them.

Outside of work I enjoy the challenge of the various sporting activities I seem to find myself doing which usually involve mountains or being on the water. In other quieter pursuits I’m planning a garden mainly aimed at providing ingredients to create, or go into alcohol, and slowly cultivating an expensive taste in rum and gin.
