Child protection charity NSPCC is hunting for a director of

communications following a restructuring of the top levels of its

communications and public policy divisions.



Growth of the organisation has created a larger role for public policy,

a spokeswoman said. ’It is useful to have someone overseeing the

communications role as it becomes more important,’ she added.



The responsibilities of the current director of communication, Phillip

Noyes, encompass media relations, public policy and lobbying.



But from September this year, public policy will become a separate

function.



And Noyes will take on the title of director of public policy, with

responsibility for policy development, education and campaign

activities.



The new communications head will come in at board director level and

will report to the NSPCC’s chief executive Jim Harding. He or she will

manage a team of around 14 people, including the head of marketing

communications and the head of media.



The new role will involve providing in-house agency support for

fundraising activities and children’s services - such as the helpline -

as well as running education campaigns on childcare issues and creating

corporate campaigns about the society’s work.



’The structural change is to reflect the new emphasis on communications

and service delivery,’ said Noyes.
