US Banking giant JP Morgan has today announced the appointment of former Chancellor of the Exchequer Sajid Javid, who will become Senior Adviser on the bank’s Advisory Council for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Javid left his role in the current government in February after refusing to sack his advisers as part of a power struggle with Boris Johnson’s chief advisor Dominic Cummings.
The job marks a return to JP Morgan for Javid, who worked there in the 1990s before moving to Deutsche Bank.
In a statement, the company said: “We are delighted to welcome Sajid back to JP Morgan as a senior adviser, and we look forward to drawing upon his in-depth understanding of the business and economic environment to help shape our client strategy across Europe.”
Javid will remain as MP for Bromsgrove alongside his new role.
