Few geopolitical events have distracted global banks more than the endless twists and turns of Brexit. Now, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. is hiring a former public servant steeped in the U.K.’s attempts to sever itself from the European Union.

Olly Robbins, who was former Prime Minister Theresa May’s chief Brexit negotiator, plans to join the U.S. bank as a managing director after completing a fellowship, according to a statement Monday from the cabinet office. He will work in its investment-banking division, according to the statement, which didn’t elaborate on his role.
