This month, Crest welcomed Kobby Thomas, who will be joining the team as part of a six-month secondment from the Civil Service Fast Stream. Kobby is in his second year of the Fast Stream, having already gained experience working at the Ministry of Justice and the Department for Health and Social Care.
Kobby has a keen interest in crime and justice, which drew him to the secondment with Crest. As Strategy and Policy Projects Lead, Kobby will be supporting the team on analysis for research and consulting projects, as well as project managing research into the link between social media and serious violence.
Kobby said: "I've only been here for a week and I'm already enjoying the energy of the team and the diversity of the work at Crest. Over the next six months, I can't wait get stuck into analytical research in the criminal justice space, working on some particularly relevant and impactful projects. I'm sure I'll be taking what I learn here back with me to the Civil Service"
