After studying at Oxford University he worked for management consultancy firm McKinsey & Company before moving to the charity Teach First and then Absolute Return for Kids where he set up the Future Leaders programme. 

He founded the Shaftesbury Partnership in 2006 which is inspired by Victorian social reformers and works on housing, healthcare and social projects. 

Wei was made a life peer when he was appointed as an unpaid government advisor in May 2010 when he also stepped down from active involvement in the organisations he had previously been involved with.
