In the interim he worked at the Insolvency Service and HM Passport Office as a change management practitioner and more recently as a product manager in digital services. His public sector career started at Legal Aid Agency, where he worked on the fraud and error reduction that enabled LAA to have their NAO accounts qualification lifted.
