#37: About Life In Government (Interview with ex-Labour Home Secretary Jacqui Smith‪)‬ Amy Talks

    • Society & Culture

For this episode of Amy Talks, I speak to ex-Labour Home Secretary Jacqui Smith and we discuss her previous career as a teacher, life in government (including her tenure in various ministerial roles), her time as Home Secretary and how difficult it can be for ex-ministers to obtain employment after leaving politics. I also ask Jacqui about her work with the NHS Birmingham Hospital Trust, For The Many (which she co-hosts with previous guest Iain Dale), and her time on Strictly Come Dancing in 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic.
