Rachel Measures

I’m MPA’s resident CRM and Excel super geek. My role is to help our delivery team understand and support customers better through data interpretation and analysis. The other string to my bow is I am a member of MPA Pulse. We exist as custodians of MPA’s employee culture and work hard to maintain a great working environment.

My best experience at MPA so far…

For me one of the most important things is how supportive MPA are from a pastoral sense. I have young children and juggling work and home is a challenge but the unwavering support and flexibility that is here is invaluable.

Being a member of MPA Pulse has been a great experience as it has allowed me to work with people from across the business that I wouldn’t normally get to know and also dealing directly with the Board of Directors.

MPA offer industry placement positions every year and working with the students has been brilliant. They bring such a fresh perspective and challenge the way you do things. It’s a privilege to work alongside them and see them develop in knowledge and experience.

Rachel in 3 words:

Fun, feisty, sincere.

Favourite book / movie / play:

Book: Harry Potter (yes, I queued in the night for the books), His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman, I also love an autobiography – recently read Michelle Obama’s “Becoming”.

Movie: my indulgence is anything cheesy and musical – Grease 2, Mama Mia, Dream Girls. I also really enjoy SciFi especially the recent Star Treks, Passengers, the Martian.TV series – I have to mention Band of Brothers as my all-time favourite tv box set, I never get tired of watching it

Play: I loved musical theatre and Matilda is the best thing I have seen in a long time. I also saw Only Fools & Horses recently and it was great fun.

Hobbies and interests:

I have small children so most of my time is taken up with them. As a family, we enjoy arts & crafts, gardening, lots of Disney and camping.

I enjoy baking and recently made a princess cake for my daughter’s 5th birthday.
