White will start full-time at the EA in early April and replaces Alex Ross, who left to join Accenture.

She said: ‘The focus, as with many in the public sector, is the targeted use of resources. In our case, it’s to deliver environmental outcomes.

‘We will be looking at behavioural change, whether it’s about helping people protect the environment or on the issue of flooding. For the latter, it’s about making people aware of flooding and the risk it poses to homes, business and the local economy.’

White, who has recently been running her own consultancy, was previously director of comms at the Office of the Children’s Commissioner for England.  She will report to director of performance and engagement Pam Gilder.
