  • People are multi-dimensional and one size does not fit all. It is hard for one job or one employer to give you everything you need or want.
  • A portfolio career is designed by you for you. You can edit it over time to suit your changing needs and wants and adapt to market conditions.
  • You can be all of who you are with a portfolio career, feeling authentic, enjoying freedom, flexibility and new challenges and learning experiences that express and fulfil multiple skills and interests.

How I help you create your portfolio career

Rachel BrushfieldHi, my name is Rachel and I am founder of the Energise LLClub, a community of women lawyers with portfolio careers. My job is to support you to liberate all of your talent.

I help my clients to re-evaluate their career and to create a portfolio career that fits them perfectly. I also help them to market and manage themselves for maximum fulfilment and minimum stress.

I have helped hundreds of professionals to re-evaluate their career, gain insights, greater awareness, new clarity, enhanced confidence and conviction to make the changes they want and be more of who they are.

I have and enjoy a portfolio career myself because I love variety and new experiences, and because freedom, choice and space are key personal values. I value career fulfilment and put this at the heart of my decisions – I design my work to give me the life that I want and enjoy a great work life blend. Does the prospect of doing this for yourself appeal to you?

My own portfolio career consists of career coaching, e courses, consultancy in talent management and learning and development, business development mentoring, writing books, chapters and articles, events and creating and curating content.

What do our clients say about their portfolio career?

“I always found being a lawyer narrow and restrictive. I guess you could say that I am an atypical lawyer. I feel so much happier now that I have made the break and created my own portfolio career. I love the variety, freedom and autonomy it gives me – I feel like a new person! I enjoy the legal component of my portfolio career much more now it is one part not all of my week. I wish I had made the break years ago!”

“Being a working mother, flexibility is vital to juggle work and family life. Let’s face it, law firms are not really places where women can enjoy flexibility and progress easily. My portfolio career combines freelance lawyering, and my own dog walking business. I work from home and can juggle my hours to suit my needs and my clients. I even get time to volunteer for my local charity and do an evening class once a week.”
