PUBLIC SECTOR: Sheffield museum trust boosts operation

Fresh from bringing in Margot Williams as the new marketing and PR head of the Sheffield Galleries and Museums Trust, chief executive Gordon Rintoul has given the nod for further expansion. Williams is now pushing ahead with the formation of the first full PR team for the trust since it came into being last year, with the appointment of its first PR officer. The new role was created after a review of marketing and communications, which was previously handled by one person. The press officer will report to Williams and work alongside local agency Paradigm PR, retained on a short contract recently to support the museum’s PR function.

First comms manager for Argyll and Bute Argyll and Bute Council in

Scotland has hired Lynda Syed as its first communications manager. Syed

will join at the beginning of December from the regional assembly of

Yorkshire and Humberside, where she is external affairs and policy

manager. Syed’s appointment comes as a result of a communications audit

by Ian Coldwell, director of Edinburgh-based agency PS Communications,

who recommended changes in the structure and strategy of the council’s

communications. In the new structure, head of corporate policy Alisdair

Boviard becomes responsible for communications. The role was previously

overseen by a corporate services manager.
