Jay joined the LCA team in April 2016 as an Account Executive after previous roles at the London Borough of Waltham Forest as part of the National Graduate Development Programme, and at a public affairs and media consultancy firm.
He has a particular passion for supporting the construction of new schools across the Capital, having worked closely with LocatED – the DfE’s property arm – on a number of projects. He has also successfully supported the delivery of consultation programmes, community and stakeholder engagement strategies for some of London’s biggest developers including Barratt London, U+I and Galliard Homes.
Jay also has experience in delivering major place-making and media strategies for clients. He is currently working with the London Borough of Enfield on their £6bn transformation of Meridian Water, and continues to lead on and provide media support to Piper’s for their annual London Real Estate Forum event.
Having worked for a local authority and PR agency, Jay is able to fuse his experience executing media and public affairs campaigns with a strong knowledge of local government to the benefit of LCA’s clients.
After gaining a BA in English Literature and a MA in Web Journalism – both at the University of Sheffield – Jay worked as a freelance journalist, and lays claim to a number of publications in various regional and trade publications.
Jay is a proud and long-suffering Arsenal fan, though there has been much more emphasis on the latter in recent times...He is also a keen gym-goer, cyclist and goalkeeper, and is generally capable at sports which involve little physical prowess, like pool.
