Title Sam Gyimah’s second adviser shows trend for ‘loyalty’ jobs Media name/outlet Times Higher Education Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 20/07/18 Description Andy Westwood, professor of government at the University of Manchester and a former special adviser to Labour’s John Denham in his time as secretary of state responsible for universities, said that both of Mr Gyimah’s advisers “will be welcome at their respective departments because of their deep knowledge and experience in their policy areas”.
He added: “In the DfE’s case, I’m sure Diana will bring very helpful additional capacity not least after losing several senior civil servants such as Iain Mansfield, Polly Payne and Ruth Hannant just before the reshuffle that brought Sam Gyimah into the job.”
