Paul is a current Senior Parliamentary Assistant to a senior MP and has now worked for MPs for over 11 years, during which he has built up a huge breadth of knowledge in the day-to-day workings of MPs and their offices. Amongst the MPs that Paul has worked for in a senior position are Ministers, Government Whips, Parliamentary Private Secretaries, the chair of a Select Committee, and a Party Vice Chairman.
With extensive experience, Paul has worked in both a parliamentary and a constituency office and has built up a vast array of knowledge, particularly in relation to casework issues and MP’s office processes. This has given him a strong and up to date insight into the wide variety of social and community issues that come across the desk of an MP on a daily basis.
Prior to working in Parliament, Paul managed an education research centre at the University of Oxford. He was also Policy Adviser to the University of Oxford, advising and drafting policy on the topical issues of admissions and outreach during which he was involved in the setting up of Oxford’s groundbreaking new access schemes. He holds a BA (Hons) degree in Politics and Sociology and an MA in International Relations from Oxford Brookes University, the latter via a full scholarship from the University of Oxford.
In his spare time, Paul enjoys 80’s science fiction classics, spending time by the sea and swimming.
