As a special adviser to the Minister of State for Universities and Science Jo Johnson MP, Gilbert worked on government policy development and comms in the higher education, science and innovation, and space sectors.

He was appointed as a special adviser following the 2015 general election, having previously worked in Parliament for the Conservatives from 2007 to 2010 on research and innovation policy.

Before moving to BIS, he was a senior account director at Hanover from 2010 to 2015.

Charles Lewington, MD of Hanover, said: “Dan was one of the brightest hires we made at Hanover. We are delighted to have him back in the fold. He will be providing advice of the highest quality to a broad range of clients in the Higher Education, Life Sciences and Manufacturing sectors. His policy knowledge and understanding of Government will be especially valuable as we go through this unprecedented period of uncertainty following the Brexit vote.”

Gilbert added: “I’m looking forward to taking on this new role at Hanover, helping to advise clients at a time of great political change. I’m also delighted to be rejoining such a talented and growing team.”
