Changes afoot as Haringey Council shakes up comms

A further shake-up of Haringey Council's communications team has

been announced.



The team has already been increased from a staff of six to 23 over the

past year, after bringing other functions, such as translation, under

the communications umbrella.



The unit has now received a further boost with the creation of seven

posts, including internal communications, publicity and web development

managers, which it is looking to fill.



The council has also added a further pounds 20,000 to the annual salary

of the head of communications. The post was made vacant earlier this

month after the departure of Siobhan Crozier to head communications at

Tower Hamlets council.



The changes have been brought about to improve crisis management,

provide effective e-services and improve lines of communication within

the council.



The borough, led by CEO David Warwick, has come under scrutiny this year

over the death of eight-year-old Anna Climbie, who was murdered despite

the involvement of the council's social services, the police and the

NHS.



Leader, p10.
