UK — Strategic insight consultancy BritainThinks has hired former Labour Party advisor Julia Ridpath to be a senior research executive in the latest of a number of new hires.

Ridpath was most recently campaigns advisor to Harriet Harman QC MP, during her tenure as interim leader of the Opposition. Before that she worked in the strategy and planning department at The Labour Party where she was a member of the team conducting opinion research in the run up to the 2015 General Election.

At the Labour Party she developed her quantitative and qualitative research skills and gained experience using audience insights to deliver strategic solutions to complex problems. Prior to joining the The Labour Party, she completed internships at both Transparency International UK and at the Chicago headquarters of Obama’s 2012 presidential re-election campaign.
