Andrew Hair

A political communicator by trade, Andrew has previously provided communications and policy advice for a Labour Shadow Minister, a large national housing association and in local government.


Prior to joining Onyx, Andrew studied a Masters Degree in Media and Public Relations at Newcastle University, writing his dissertation on Donald Trumps’ use of Twitter as an aspect of crisis communications.

During his PR career Andrew has devised communication campaigns that have won awards and received national coverage. One of his proudest moments was developing a communications campaign for a sign language charity that changed government policy and improved TV subtitles for deaf people.

Outside of work he enjoys bad Netflix documentaries, drinking far too much diet coke and being a current affairs junkie. Andrew is a culture vulture and can often be found checking out the latest film releases at the Tyneside Cinema, enjoying new exhibitions at the Baltic and seeing a good show at the theatre.
