Rachael Smyth

Assistant Project Manager

Email: rachael@stepsdrama.com
Rachael holds a degree in English from Royal Holloway, University of London and a postgraduate diploma in acting from Drama Studio London.  As an actress, Rachael worked within Theatre in Education, engaging young learners through interactive drama and facilitated discussion.   Through temporary employment contracts, Rachael gained experience across a range of different sectors including legal, education and telecoms - in both private and public sector organisations.  This diversity of experience has given her a valuable understanding of different working styles and an awareness of effective communication and team working. 

At Steps, Rachael draws on many of the skills she has gained from her varied work history to assist Project Managers and Account Directors in all areas of programme development . She has worked on  programmes with the Ministry of Justice, Royal Bank of Scotland and RNLI.

Outside of Steps you will probably find Rachael at the theatre or indulging her new hobbies of running and practising Yoga (though not at the same time!)...

Most embarrassing moment?  
Falling off the back of a routemaster bus!  I landed flat on my back in the middle of the road. Luckily there was no traffic behind the bus...

What book did you last read?
‘The Island’ by Victoria Hislop whilst on holiday in Crete, where the book is set.  It really brought the book to life...

My mum.
