Environment Agency loses McCallum to Which?

The Environment Agency is on the hunt for a new corporate affairs director after losing the current postholder to the consumer body Which?

Helen McCallum has joined Which? as director of policy. She has many years of heavyweight issues management under her belt, including two years as director of communications at the Dep­artment of Health.

At the Environment Agency, head of corporate comms Adrian Long has stepped into McCallum’s role, which oversees all lobbying, on an interim basis. The agency’s head of parliamentary and government relations Richard Streeter reports to the corporate aff­airs director.

Long has previously worked as a special adviser to former deputy prime minister John Prescott.

The Environment Agency is the leading public body for protecting and improving the environment in England and Wales, responsible for air, land and water.

The body’s 65 comms staff will be called upon in full if the well-publicised bird flu virus hits British shores, as the Environment Agency will be tasked with ensuring all poultry carcasses are disposed of safely.
