PUBLIC SECTOR: Corporate communications role in Essex

Essex County Council is looking for someone to fill a beefed-up head of corporate communications post in preparation for the government's Best Value initiative. The previous incumbent, Mark Oakes, left to join Surrey County Council in March; a rethink at Essex has led to a wider brief for the role. The new postholder will co-ordinate a team of about 30 media staff covering public relations, external and internal communications, IT, graphics and work arising out of the Best Value initiative.
