Eden is now part of a team which helps to communicate the Prime Minister’s domestic priorities agenda, arrange visits and ensure trips run smoothly.
Her role takes her far and wide to all corners of the country and beyond – recently, Eden travelled to Berlin with the Prime Minister to accompany him on his visit.
Eden said: “Anywhere the PM goes, we go in advance and we are also there when the PM is there. It is about how we communicate the PM’s agenda and policy announcements.
“In a hypothetical situation, if the PM was to announce £100m investment into technology, we would find suitable places for him to visit and make it happen.
“Being a Civil Servant is really interesting because you’re politically neutral but you’re there to serve whoever is in power and to enact their agenda.”
Eden reflected on her time at the University of Hull, and the platform it provided her to reach the highest levels of government.
“Having a sandwich year as part of my degree and being able to have it on my CV was invaluable. Some of the work I did was fairly basic, but trying out different things meant I could refine what I was good at and realise what I enjoyed, which was event management.
“I fully put that sandwich year down to where I am today, without it I do not think I would be where I am now.
“You have got to think outside the box of what you can do with a law and politics degree. I quickly realised I was not going to be a barrister or a solicitor, and had to think about where my skills could take me.
“Hull was my first choice because of the sandwich year and if you’re thinking about it, I would say come to Hull, because it has a great vibe about it. I really loved it – I loved the smaller community feel, met some brilliant people who I am still great friends with today.”
