About me


Rachel Urquhart – RUHR

I am Rachel Urquhart, director of RUHR.  My passion is about working with companies that recognise the value in their people, and appreciate that they are the key to their ongoing success.

With over a decade of senior HR experience, I am able to advise you and your company on what works and what doesn’t.  This could be anything from getting the basics right (contracts and job descriptions), through to strategic input on changes that you want to make in your business (e.g. mergers, employee engagement or rethinking your company structure).

Having been Head of HR for a large organisation, my aim is to provide that level of knowledge and experience to help small and medium size businesses to achieve their goals. Providing relevant services when required, so that you don’t have to pay for a full time HR Director.

In the last 5 years, I have been Head of HR and Organisation Development (OD) for NHS Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit, followed by contracts as HR Strategy Lead and Head of OD and Learning.
