Our Director, Christian Guy, will be leaving the CSJ next week to begin work in 10 Downing Street, serving the Prime Minister as a Special Adviser for welfare reform and opportunity.
Christian will be working within No.10's Policy Unit, which is led by former journalist Camilla Cavendish and reports directly to the Prime Minister, to help the Government deliver its commitment to build One Nation and true social justice.
As well as working with departments to roll out CSJ ideas like Universal Credit, Christian will be helping to develop big reforms for the future to transform lives and create opportunity in the poorest parts of our country.
Christian joined the CSJ in 2007, as an intern, and leaves having led the team for more than three years. During his time in charge the CSJ has known increasing political impact - including work to inspire the Modern Slavery Act and many manifesto commitments at the last election - and has continued to win recognition as one of the UK's leading think tanks.
He will be missed but we thank him for what he has achieved here and wish him well for all he is to work on in government.
We will be in touch with more information about his replacement shortly.
Mark Florman, Chairman
