Charlie Winstanley

Head of Regional Economic Change

Charlie joined CLES in January 2024.  Prior to joining us, he worked in local government for nearly eight years as a Political Advisor, working as part of the executive of both council and city regional governance for Salford City Council.

Here’s what Charlie said when we asked, “why did you choose CLES?”

I have always taken a keen interest in the pioneering work and research coming from CLES, at the cutting edge of policy and economic analysis in the UK. CLES provides great thinking, research and constructive challenge to our discourse on the economy, always putting people at the centre of our discourse.
