Alistair is passionate about international development and wants a career that helps to reduce economic inequalities globally. Having been educated at a comprehensive and then a grammar, Alistair has seen the stark inequality of opportunity in the UK. He has a vision where young people, particularly from minority and socioeconomically deprived backgrounds, recognise their talents and ability, and thus have the confidence to be recruited for, and excel at, some of the most sought after jobs in the world. Alistair is now in his fifth year in the Civil Service. He has done both domestic and international jobs at HM Treasury.
Alistair now works at the UK's Department for International Development, trying to improve developing country's taxation systems. Before joining the Civil Service he taught in a secondary school in Ghana, analysed social welfare policies for the Government of Goa and worked as a trainee consultant for an international development consultancy in London.
