Amber Rudd

Senior Advisor

After a career in business Amber Rudd was the Member of Parliament for Hastings and Rye from 2010 to 2019.

In Government, Amber was appointed PPS to the Chancellor in September 2012, and in October 2013 she became a Government Whip.

Amber was appointed as Minister for the Department of Energy and Climate Change in July 2014 and, in May 2015 became Secretary of State for the Department. In December 2015 she led the UK team to the successful completion of the Paris Climate Change Agreement. This UN sponsored Conference of the Parties (COP 21) achieved the first ever legally binding global commitment to reduce national carbon emissions.

From July 2016 to April 2018, Amber served as Home Secretary. During 2017, Amber responded to the succession of terrorist attacks, calling for an international response to take radicalising material off the internet. She called for an internet response led by the major Internet Service Providers and travelled to Silicon Valley to make the case for a more responsible role by internet companies. The formation of the Global Internet Forum for Counter Terrorism (www.GIFCT.org) in 2017 addressed this call and has successfully reduced the amount of material online and set up a scheme to ensure smaller companies are also able to remove radicalising material.

From November 2018 to September 2019, Amber served as Secretary of State for Work and Pensions (DWP). At DWP she led a campaign for excellence in UK wide job centres to improve the culture and quality of delivery of all welfare benefits. She has also served as Minister for Women and Equalities, and led on delivering the UK’s first gender pay gap reporting.

During her time in Government she was active in the media and in national debates.

She has recently joined The Climate Group (www.theclimategroup.org) as a Trustee.
