Rachel Alidoosti Director of HR at Virgin Megastores


With over 18 years of international experience, Rachel Alidoosti’s career in Human Resource Management has spanned across the Middle East and Australia; working for brands such as Philips, Danone and Monarch Group. Rachel currently heads up the HR department for the region’s most progressive and original retail brand: Virgin Megastores; a role that routinely requires for her to think outside of the box in order to maintain, build and motivate a team of 500 employees. Her inherent passion for diversity, inclusion and equality is evident at all levels of the organization; extending far beyond the typical realm of HR, and into the day to day practices, events and policies that celebrate individuality and encourage originality. A strong advocate for learning and development, Rachel is currently also pursuing a Masters in Psychology & Organization from the University of Liverpool to bring in fresh ideas and perspectives into her workplace.
