head of parliamentary affairs
What brought you to JBP?
I have a very experienced background working in politics. I previously worked as a Conservative Special Adviser for the Leader of the House of Lords, so I have an in-depth knowledge of the inner workings of Parliament and Government. I also previously worked for the Conservative Research Department as a political adviser focussing on detailed opposition research and policy analysis, providing briefing support for ministers, candidates and senior campaign staff during the 2015 General Election campaign. In 2017 I decided to move away from party politics to experience agency life with JBP.
