After two years he started working for the Civil and Public Services Association and also joined the House of Commons as a researcher for a recently elected MP. In 2000 Tom became Head of Campaigns for the Public and Commercial Services Union and in 2004 was promoted to Director of Communications responsible for the organisation’s communications and public affairs strategies. His remit in this role was to improve member engagement and the profile of the organisation, which saw a substantial increase in membership numbers.
