I received lots of outstanding applications for the roles of Parliamentary Assistant and Constituency Support Manager in my office. I interviewed some excellent candidates, including many candidates local to South Northamptonshire, and whilst it was a difficult decision, I am delighted to welcome Tommy Gilchrist and Hilary Edwards to my team as my Parliamentary Assistant and my Constituency Support Manager respectively.
Hilary and Tommy will begin work over the next few weeks and I'm sure will be great additions to the team and will work hard to support constituents in South Northamptonshire. Tommy will be leading local campaigns on HS2, planning applications, potholes, wind farms and the Towcester Relief Road to name a few. Hilary is joining us to help support my caseworkers, organise local surgeries and help set up our new constituency office in Towcester. I am looking forward to working with both of them.
Former Magdalen College student, Jonathan Riley has also started as my new Apprentice Caseworker for the next year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ellie Hanger for all her hard work over the last year as my Apprentice and wish her all the best as she moves on to university.
For any local student who would be interested in joining my team as my Apprentice Caseworker for a year, please do get in touch!
