In September, we welcomed three new faces to the Crest team.
John Milik is the latest addition to the communications team. As an intern, John will support Charlotte Phillips, Anna Bennett and Jess Hull on our public inquiry projects. John has previous experience as a tutor, market researcher and mental health support worker.
John says he is keen to gain an insight into how the criminal justice system functions and the way press coverage shapes public perceptions of justice reform.
Anthony Broxton joins us as Project and Engagement Officer - a new role at Crest - where he will be responsible for liaising with stakeholders on a number of research and client-facing projects. Anthony recently completed a Masters in Politics and Contemporary History at King’s College, London, where he was awarded First Class honours. Anthony has since worked as a freelance journalist and historian, writing regularly for publications such as The Times, The I, Prospect and The Critic magazine.
Anthony is looking forward to developing relationships with stakeholders and promoting the work that Crest does, saying: "It's exciting to be joining an organisation that is working to improve the criminal justice system in Britain”.
Lastly, for the next six months, Julian Sandler will be part of our team while on secondment under the Civil Service Statistician Fast Stream programme. Julian’s most recent role was at the Ministry of Justice, where he was responsible for producing official figures on diversity in the judiciary. Prior to that he was at the Office for National Statistics, where he worked on population data methodology.
Julian says: "Having worked in the justice arena on quite a niche topic, I’m excited to increase my knowledge of the system as a whole through working at Crest on a variety of projects".
