Debbie Porter was previously head of policy communications at the Department for International Development.

The UK Border Agency was established in April 2008 by bringing together immigration, customs and overseas visa checks to secure our border. The Government hopes that the new body will further protect the UK against illegal immigration and terrorism.

As deputy director, Porter will help to shape communications and set strategy for this high profile agenda.

Porter said: ‘Advising ministers and the board, l will oversee integrated internal communications campaigns on Agency priorities and help lead wider professional community of communicators across the agency.’

Former Lewisham Council comms head Robert Yeldham took up the top comms role at the government agency in April.
