The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) - a one-stop shop
for all financial compensation claims - is on the hunt for a
FSCS, which has been created by the merger of six existing schemes, is
seeking a head of communications to oversee all PR, develop
communications strategies and review external PR support.
The group - set up for customers of banks, building societies, insurers
and independent financial advisers - is to launch in November when the
Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 is put in place.
FSCS chief executive Suzanne McCarthy said: 'It's important for the
industry to know who we are.
'I'm looking for someone who will help promote the scheme with the
industry sectors and the Financial Services Authority, working on
consumer education,' she added.
The communications head will report directly to McCarthy and will be
supported by a PRO.
Part of the recruit's remit will be to look at the scheme's external PR
support. The FSCS currently uses HBL Media for ad hoc project work.
