Last week we said a sad goodbye to Senior Policy Analyst Callum Tipple. Callum joined us in 2018 from the think tank Global Future, having graduated with a first-class honours degree in Philosophy and Spanish from the University of Oxford.
Callum has contributed a tremendous amount to Crest’s success over the past 18 months, including working closely on our major research into the drivers of serious violence and, more recently, leading on a deep dive project into the policing of extremism.
His cheerful demeanour and enthusiasm for Crest’s varied portfolio will be sorely missed, particularly in the face of the many challenges presented by the recent COVID-19 lockdown.
We’re thrilled that Callum’s next role will be at the heart of politics, as Policy Advisor to the Rt Hon Peter Kyle, Shadow Minister for Victims and Youth Justice and the Labour MP for Hove.
It’s been a pleasure to work at Crest for the past two years. I’ve learnt an awful lot about policy-making and strategy at both the local and national levels, and have enjoyed the chance to directly influence frontline provision through work with key partners such as police and crime commissioners. The team is supportive and friendly, which has been brilliant when delivering to tight deadlines.
I’m really looking forward to using the grounding in criminal justice policy that Crest has offered me in my new role. I wish everyone at Crest the very best, and can’t wait to see the exciting outputs due for publication over the next few months.
CEO Harvey Redgrave said:
During his time at Crest, Callum has proved to be a fantastic asset to our team, driving forward our work on violence, criminal justice effectiveness and extremism. We wish him every success in his future career.
