Youth development charity Raleigh International is to lose its

communications head in November when incumbent Andrew Osborne leave.



Osborne, who has worked at Raleigh for three-and-a-half years, is

joining conservation agency the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority,

where he takes the newly-created position of media officer.



At Raleigh International, Osborne reports to director of resources

Richard Kendall and oversees three people. His responsibilities include

media relations, publications, corporate identity and crisis management.

In the last few days, he has handled press enquiries surrounding the

murder of Raleigh International volunteer Anna Lightfoot in Belize.



In his new job, Osborne will oversee media relations, working alongside

publications officer Steve Hounsham and reporting to external affairs

head Annie Gallaway.



Osborne said: ’It’s a great opportunity to work in an environment close

to my heart. I will be pushing the agenda and priorities of the

Yorkshire Dales and establishing it in the regional and national

context.’



The Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority is a publicly-funded body

dedicated to conserving the Dales and promoting public recreation

there.



Raleigh International is based in the UK and manages ten community and

environmental projects a year in developing countries.
