UK-based childcare charity the European Children’s Trust is seeking

its first head of public affairs.



The post will report to the charity’s chief executive Donald McCready

and will be responsible for relations with governments, the European

Commission and funding bodies such as the World Bank.



The post will also oversee media relations and profile-raising for the

charity. PR and campaigns manager Kate Pierce will report to the new

director.



The European Children’s Trust was set up eight years ago as the Romanian

Orphanage Trust and was renamed last June. It has not had a government

relations function before, although some aspects of the role were

previously handled by the programmes department, which runs the

charity’s aid projects.



Pierce, who is not applying for the post, said: ’This is recognising the

need for charities like us to increase their profile in the media and

with Government bodies and officials.’
