Rachael Henley

Manager, Associate Programme, Platform Professionals

Team: Platform Professionals, Talent & recruitment

Rachael joined Actis in January 2020, to develop Actis’ Associate Programme and implement a strategy for growth and success year on year. Class sizes have more than doubled since 2019 and our I&D centred recruitment strategy has seen positive results on diverse representation in a short timeframe.

A key part of Rachael’s role is to engage with global stakeholders at all levels and nurture the leaders of tomorrow, working alongside a 35 strong team of volunteer investment professionals who feed into the Associate Programme’s development, ensuring it is optimised for the business’ needs.

Rachael is a good example of the diverse range of talent at Actis, having come from an Arts background. She trained as a professional actor (Royal Central School of Speech and Drama). Her experience spans Executive Search (FreshMinds Talent), Research & Insight in projects spanning Healthcare, Education, Financial Services and Telecommunications sectors (Decidedly), as well as Operational Roles across serviced office management, event and project management.

Having started at Actis in a 3-month freelance role in January 2020, Rachael has become a firm believer in the Actis story, people and values.
