Former home secretary Amber Rudd is to join city PR firm Teneo Blue Rubicon in an advisory role.

Rudd, who resigned from the cabinet and the Conservative Party in September in the wake of Boris Johnson’s decision to expel 21 senior Tories, announced her new post on Twitter.

She said she would be "giving strategic advice" to Teneo, and would also be taking up a trustee role at The Climate Group.

Rudd was the MP for Hastings and Rye from 2010 to 2019, and as Minister for the Department of Energy and Climate Change she led the UK team to the successful completion of the Paris Climate Change Agreement. 

She was Home Secretary between July 2016 and April 2018 and also served as Secretary of State for Work and Pensions and Minister for Women and Equalities.

Other advisors employed by Teneo Blue Rubicon - whose services include brand strategy, crisis management and communications strategy - include former Conservative Party leader Lord Hague and Senator George Mitchell, the former Chairman of the Northern Ireland Peace Talks.
