Prior to joining Wilsons, Yordanka worked as a Parliamentary Caseworker for prominent Labour MPs David Lammy and Helen Hayes, assisting some of the most vulnerable in our society by making representations to central government departments, such as the Home Office and the Department for Work and Pensions, and local government on a wide range of issues including immigration, housing, homelessness, social security and other pressing political and social issues.
