Rob's Team

I have a hard-working support team that assists me in my duties as an MP:

Alice Tapfield – Parliamentary Aide

Alice manages Rob’s diary in Westminster, provides assistance to enable him to function in his role as an MP, and provides research assistance for a variety of topics, such his All Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs).

Alice is covering Michelle Bass' maternity leave.


Tamsyn Becalick -  Junior Caseworker



Tamsyn works three days in Reading and two days in Westminster. She assists Rob with the Portcullis Club, casework and correspondence from constituents about local and national issues.  


Jon Boulton - Parliamentary Researcher


Jon helps Rob by conducting Parliamentary research,  assists with the drafting of written and oral questions, speech-writing, researching and drafting policy papers and national media work.


James Giblett - Constituency Caseworker


James helps Rob deal with correspondence from constituents about local and national issues, drafts press pieces following Rob's attendance at local events and helps Rob to communicate regularly with constituents through fortnightly email newsletters and the Parliamentary Report newspaper.

James helps Rob organise the Job Fairs and attends meetings in the constituency with Rob.


Alison Swaddle - Constituency Secretary (part-time)

Alison helps Rob with his constituency community work, local surveys, local media work and the Reading constituency office administration.



I can sometimes offer work experience opportunities. Please contact me if this interests you.
