Ex-recruiter Bradley helps Tories appeal to the youth

A former recruiter-turned-MP has been charged with helping the Conservative Party increase its appeal to young people.

In a newly created role in Prime Minister Theresa May’s Cabinet reshuffle yesterday, Ben Bradley, Conservative MP for Mansfield, was appointed the Conservative Party’s new vice chair for youth.

As well as holding a number of roles within the Tory Party, including leader of the Conservative Group and campaign manager, Bradley had a four-month stint at recruitment giant Hays back in 2013 as an associate consultant specialising in accountancy and finance placements.

Other major moves in the reshuffle saw Esther McVey, a past employment minister, promoted to work and pensions secretary, secretary of state for education Justine Greening resign from the government after refusing a job as work and pensions secretary, and Brandon Lewis becoming Tory chairman.
