Project Brexit

Philip Rycroft


Second Permanent Secretary at the Department for Exiting the EU

Philip Rycroft was appointed Second Permanent Secretary at the Department for Exiting the European Union in April 2017. He is Olly Robbins’ right-hand and responsible for managing the department’s policy and legislative agenda.

He is also Head of UK Governance Group in the Cabinet Office, where his main responsibility is related to constitutional and devolution issues. He will therefore keep a close eye on what impact Brexit has on Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

In the Liberal Democrat – Conservative Government, Rycroft served as right hand of pro-European Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg in his position as Director General in the Deputy Prime Minister’s Office from 2012 to 2015. He also spent time in Brussels as an expert in the Cabinet of Vice-President Leon Brittan in the European Commission.
