Mark Spencer-Scragg

Personal Assistant & Office Manager

Manchester born and Lancashire raised, Mark started work with The Post Office, before forging a career in HR & Training and moving to London to pursue his working life in the private sector. Meeting (his future wife) Alison meant a move to Liverpool and arrival of their twin boys – Oscar & Alfie – in 2012 allowed Mark to become a ‘stay-at-home dad’ to allow Alison to pursue her political career with UNITE, the Trade Union.

A socialist, trade unionist and politically active in the Labour movement, the opportunity to join #TeamTG as Theresa’s Personal Assistant and Office Manager was too good an opportunity to miss. Mark is now responsible for managing the constituency office in Liverpool and making sure #TeamTG in Brussels and Liverpool have everything they need.

The limited spare time Mark has is taken up with amusing the twins and, very occasionally, watching Chelsea FC!
