What brought you to JBP?
I graduated from the University of Sheffield with a BA honours in Politics, before earning an MA in History from the University of York. I went into international logistics, working with multinational clients like Jaguar Land Rover. I joined JBP in 2018.
Tell us about your role:
I support several of our clients with their creative communications, from speech-writing and media relations to parliamentary engagement. I work within several APPG secretariats, on topics as varied as vaping and digital currencies.
The UKVIA is a particular passion of mine, as it allows me to use my full range of public affairs skills.
What is your skillset?
I draw on my considerable experience of parliamentary engagement to take our clients’ priorities to the decision-makers who matter. I research and draft policy for our public affairs clients, as well as facilitating parliamentary dialogue and advising on media relations.
I enjoy utilising a suite of engagement options for clients, from roundtables and parliamentary questions, to industrial forums and parliamentary launches.
And finally, what do you do in your spare time?
Out of the office, I am lucky enough to support the pride of the Midlands: Birmingham City FC
