Save the Children is losing its UK communications head, Corinne

Woods, who is leaving at Christmas to become the charity’s first

communications director in the US.



Woods oversees a team of 28 people covering media relations, education,

campaigns, publications and design. She reports to marketing director

John Kingston. Save the Children is actively seeking to replace her.



Ongoing Save the Children PR campaigns include highlighting issues

surrounding child labour. The charity recently successfully lobbied for

the recruitment of child soldiers to be classified as a war crime by the

international war crimes tribunal last December.



Save the Children operates in 70 countries. Last year the charity

generated pounds 78 million in the UK.
