I joined JBP in April on an internship and quickly progressed. Prior to joining JBP I studied politics at the University of Bristol before embarking on a master’s in political theory at LSE. My master’s gave me intellectual freedom and allowed me to explore a breath of subjects that had fascinated me. However, whilst studying philosophy I became naturally somewhat disillusioned with theoretical ideas never materialising into pragmatic responses. When looking for a career path I wanted to be able to help cultivate and design approaches that had direct application, one in which I could see the results. I have already been a witness to many wonderful projects being actualised.
I generally work on stakeholder engagement though I would say my role is incredibly varied. Some of my duties include media monitoring, stakeholder database building, event management, researching stakeholders, drafting briefs, and providing updates to our clients.
Predominately I spend any spare time I have with my family and friends. I’ll often cook, or more accurately burn, meals for us to dine al fresco in the idyllic English weather whilst I attempt to instigate conversation towards my latest hyperfixation, currently property markets. I have a keen interest in travel, which often does not materialise itself outside of google searches. However, In the past I have found myself fortunate enough to visit southeast Asia, America and the middle east. On my travels I’ll often be found grappling with a book on modern philosophy before trading it in for a trashy romance novel found on the airport shelves of a WH Smiths.
