Giles is the Head of Policy: Brexit, International and Economics. He works with members and policy makers across Whitehall to ensure that the needs of the tech sector are front and centre of the Government’s negotiations with the European Union as the UK prepares to leave the EU, and that UK tech thrives post-Brexit.

Prior to working for techUK Giles spent nearly a decade working in Westminster politics.  He was the senior adviser to the Liberal Democrats on Treasury, Business and Welfare, as well as heading up the Party’s team of advisers post the 2015 General Election.  He was previously the Co-Head of the Liberal Democrat Whips’ Office in the House of Lords and the Lords’ Senior Legislative Adviser, as well as holding various roles for MPs and MEPs both in opposition and during the Coalition Government.

Giles holds an LLB in Law with European Legal Systems from the University of East Anglia.  Outside of work his interests are stand-up, theatre and film.
