LONDON: South African mining group Anglo American, which backed out

of its bid for rival Tarmac on Monday, is seeking a global head of

corporate communications.



The job, a board-level post reporting to CEO and chairman Julian

Ogilvie-Thompson, is believed to pay around dollars 330,000. Anglo

American, which listed on the London Stock Exchange in May, boasts a

communications department of seven, headed by SVP of investor and

corporate affairs Nick Von Schirnding.



The search for the new pro is part of an attempt to foster a more

proactive PR approach. The successful candidate is likely to have

significant corporate and public affairs experience.



Anglo had planned to buy Tarmac and merge it with with Tilcon (Anglo’s

existing aggregate, asphalt and ready-mixed concrete business), which

would have generated significant savings. But a cash offer was rejected,

and Anglo backed off from a further bid.
