DIARY: Ffion Hague returns to her old ways following Tories' election defeat

It seems Ffion Hague, wife of outgoing Tory leader William Hague, is back on the headhunting beat following her break from the office during the election.

Ffion, who took leave of absence from her job with Mayfair-based City headhunting firm Leonard Hull to support her husband during the election, was recently spotted networking at a client and journalist bash for Edelman London's financial division.

Ffion was busy building contacts at the party, held at The Reform Club in Pall Mall, London, mingling with many of the City's great and good.

It could be a sign that Ffion is paying special attention to her career in view of her beleaguered husband's recent election disaster. It is reported that with a salary of more than £100,000, she already earns more than her husband.

Edelman financial director Michael Henman said: 'It would have been a good opportunity for her to meet some senior financial people.'

Alongside Ffion, the party was attended by around 100 guests from corporates, investment banks and business publications, including Buckingham Palace spokesman, Simon Walker.
