Your next A1 Candidate, Boris Johnson

2.6 min read

At Talent Ticker powered by Selligence, our Talent Sourcing application finds the right candidate for you, at the right time. Having recently handed his notice in, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has until 5th of September to land his next role. We want to know- what’s next for this prime candidate?

Before his time as Prime Minister, this jobseeker spent seven years as a Member of Parliament for Uxbridge and South Ruislip. Having been Mayor of London 2008-16 and Secretary for State for Foreign Commonwealth Affairs 2016-18, it’s easy to assume that he may intend to stay in politics. What do Prime Ministers do after No.10, though?

We spoke with Olivia Adams, People Operations Manager at Selligence, who’s looking to fill various roles across the team….

After leaving frontline politics, David Cameron has released a memoir and is currently involved with both Alzheimer’s Research and the International Growth Centre. Harold Wilson hosted BBC Two chat show Friday Night, Saturday Morning and Winston Churchill painted a great deal, with his art still popping up regularly to sell for millions.

That’s not to say that the job hunt for Mr Johnson will be an easy one. The Independent Advisory Committee on Business Appointments advises senior officials on whether jobs they take on after leaving government comply with business appointment rules. Drawing from the experiences of past Prime Ministers, we’ve predicted 10 potential job roles for those recruiters keen to get a head start on finding this candidate’s next role:

  1. President of ‘insert Philanthropic Endeavour here’
  2. TV Chat Show Host
  3. Artist
  4. Writer
  5. Journalist
  6. Speaker
  7. Forum Advisor
  8. Envoy
  9. Zip Line Enthusiast
  10. MP

One thing is clear- Boris is expected to be available for new opportunities imminently.
