Account Manager - Scotland
Elspeth joined Newsdirect in March 2021 and covers a portfolio comprising of all things environment, agriculture and rural affairs.
She previously worked at the Institute for Government, doing research on devolution in the UK, including the funding of devolved government, the cooperation between the UK’s four governments during the pandemic and tracking support for Scottish independence. She also worked at UCL Constitution Unit assisting on a piece of research investigating a future border poll on the island of Ireland. She graduated from the University of Edinburgh with a degree in politics in 2019.
Politics aside, she spends her time buying books she’ll take years to get round to reading, going for walks in graveyards and making vegetarian lasagne (and other things too, but mostly lasagne). She could talk for hours about the London Underground, Taylor Swift and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
