Ellie Milone

Account Manager

What brought you to JBP?

I joined JBP in 2023 from boxing charity Empire Fighting Chance, where I was Communications and Advocacy Manager. Prior to this, I spent six-and-a-half years in the elected Mayor’s Office at Bristol City Council, with a focus on communications, engagement, and policy. During this time, I worked on a broad range of projects, including coordinating the successful campaign to bring a Channel 4 Creative Hub to Bristol and delivering the annual City Leadership Programme for disadvantaged young people. While closely supporting the Mayor during many significant local, national and world events, such as the toppling of the Colston statue, Brexit, and the COVID-19 pandemic, I gained a deep understanding of the functions of local democracy.

What do you do in your spare time?
