Stuart Edgar

Account Manager

What brought you to JBP?

I graduated from the University of Sheffield with a BA honours in Politics, before earning an MA in History from the University of York. I went into international logistics, working with multinational clients like Jaguar Land Rover. I joined JBP in 2018.

Tell us about your role

I support several of our clients with their creative communications, from speech-writing and media relations to parliamentary engagement. I work within several APPG secretariats, on topics as varied as vaping and digital currencies.

The UKVIA is a particular passion of mine, as it allows me to use my full range of public affairs skills.

What is your skillset?

I draw on my considerable experience of parliamentary engagement to take our clients’ priorities to the decision-makers who matter. I research and draft policy for our public affairs clients, as well as facilitating parliamentary dialogue and advising on media relations.

I enjoy utilising a suite of engagement options for clients, from roundtables and parliamentary questions, to industrial forums and parliamentary launches.

What do you do in your spare time?

Out of the office, I am lucky enough to support the pride of the Midlands: Birmingham City FC
