Former student appointed as Shadow Scotland Minister

Paul Sweeney, former Economic and Social History student, has been appointed as Shadow Scottish Minister by Jeremy Corbyn in his recent Shadow Cabinet reshuffle. Paul was only elected as a Labour MP at the recent General Election and is one of 20 new appointments to the shadow front bench. 

Paul is remembered from his time at the University as an excellent student who was very keen to enter into the workplace. He worked for BAE Systems in Scotstoun, and was involved with the Business Archives Council of Scotland and the Glasgow University Archives in ensuring that business records from one of the predecessor shipbuilding firms were preserved. Immediately prior to his election, Paul spent a year as a senior account manager with Scottish Enterprise on its company growth, innovation and infrastructure team.
