Rachael North, Founding Director

With a strong track record of success and influence in the in-house legal sector, Rachael brings a wealth of experience and market knowledge to the in-house legal and coaching industry.

After reading law at university Rachael commenced a thriving career in executive search and recruitment. Specialising in the in-house legal sector, Rachael executes strategic searches on behalf of clients throughout EMEA and has been doing this for more than 20 years. Over this time she has advised on many high profile General Counsel appointments and recruited and re-structured legal teams at all levels across multiple disciplines and sectors.

For many years Rachael was Director, Partner and member of the global management team, as well as a key business developer, for a leading international search and recruitment firm. The firm started out as a small, national consultancy when Rachael first joined and eventually became a prosperous global business, before exiting. Post exit, Rachael sought out a fresh challenge and established the in-house search practices for two companies, a recognised national firm and a boutique practice.

Over the years, Rachael has established many long-lasting connections and co-founded some of the leading networking and ‘think tank’ events in her industry including ‘The General Counsel Dinners,’ which continue today.

These enduring professional connections and this deep understanding of her clients has been a great source of satisfaction for Rachael. So much so that in the past year, she has concentrated her knowledge and interest in this area by training as a personal development and corporate and executive coach with ‘The Coaching Academy,’ the UK’s leading coaching institution.

All combined, this rich, professional and personal experience has gained Rachael the hard-earned reputation as a ‘go to’ consultant for many in-house legal and coaching clients in the UK and internationally.

In her ‘free’ time Rachael is an avid listener of TED podcasts and recommends them to all! She enjoys indulging her fervour for interior design wherever she can but most of all, she loves to spend time with her family, including two beautiful sons, who make her smile every day.
