Being a Special Adviser - So what's the role?

It has to be someone you trust 100 per cent....You can't yourself deal with everything all the time. So your special advisers need 

  • to take some of the load off you,
  • be able to tell officials and others how you will react to issues, and
  • to be looking out on your behalf for things which could become a concern -spotting bear traps.
