Woodhouse will lead Hanover’s energy and resources practice, which works for clients including Tata Steel, and will have an account director role.

She succeeds associate director Lucy Gilchrist, who is leaving the agency after three years to join PepsiCo as head of external affairs, as head of energy and resources.

Woodhouse has seven years experience in the public affairs sphere, having started as a researcher to Graham Allen MP.

She joined DECC in January 2010 as a policy adviser after three years at environment-focused bodies The Environment Council and Natural England.

Hanover MD Charles Lewington said: "Alison has played a key role within the Department of Energy and Climate Change during the last four years, working on projects of strategic importance to DECC and helping to guide the Energy Bill through Parliament."
