Entering the workplace with a Master’s degree in European Politics, Tom didn’t anticipate making such extensive use of it during his early career. Working with Government departments, corporates and NGOs, Tom has led major research projects on issues including Brexit, devolution and immigration during one of the most turbulent periods in British political history. Tom has been a regular media commentator, appearing in outlets such as Sky News, BBC Radio 4 and the Times.

Tom’s other area of interest is financial services, having led the Financial Services Research Team at ComRes and worked with clients including Lloyds Banking Group, the Financial Times and the Financial Conduct Authority during his time at BritainThinks.

Away from work, Tom plays and watches as much sport as he can – particularly football, golf and running. He also speaks French and German fluently – with watching German football at the centre of his Venn diagram of interests.
