Former civil servant joins BEIS as special adviser to Andrea Leadsom

A former communications specialist at the Cabinet Office has become a special adviser to energy and climate change secretary Andrea Leadsom.

Samantha Magnus previously worked as a senior communications manager for Leadsom - while she was the leader of the House of Commons in Theresa May’s government - and as a press officer in the Cabinet Office.

Before moving to the civil service, Magnus worked for the public relations company Freuds and as a parliamentary assistant to Conservative MP Karen Bradley, who campaigned to remain in the EU during the referendum but backed the Withdrawal Agreement negotiated by former prime minister Theresa May.
